Day Four (Thursday April 25th): Colour Review
What are your favourite colours for knitted or crocheted projects. Have a
think about what colours you seem to favour when yarn shopping and
What I favor when shopping are greens, purples and autumn colors. However, lately I have been buying blues....I was never a blue person....and I am trying to buy more solids...most of my stuff is variegated, striped, tonal or somehow mixed...except for acrylics, (that I use for amiguramis) I don't buy too many solids....
Only after writing this part of your post should you then actually look
to see what colours you have used in your projects. Make a quick tally
of what colours you have used in your projects over the past year and
compare it to the colours you have written about. Compare this, in turn,
to the colours that are most dominant in your yarn stash – do they
I went with my last 10 projects, as I was running short on time...of my completed projects:
3 were toys or amis...so they had several colors...main colors were blue, brown, red and white...
1 was a sweater....bright green...with edgings of blue, orange and lilac
2 cowls with variegated yarn
1 cowl is shades of blue
1 pair of slippers (feet blankets) in blue and green
1 baby hat in pink and yellow
1 keychain in blue
Now the blues.....Many of the blue projects stem from me being co-captain of Stargate Command in Nerd Wars on Ravelry (if you have not checked this out you should! There is a team for everyone!) If you don't know what a Stargate is....
My personal favorite color is green....and this is evidenced by the things I make for myself:
Do those colors correlate with my stash? Most definitely! I have many, many greens in my stash...but as I said, I am more likely to buy variegated yarn.....
Now think back to your house animal - do the colours you have chosen
relate to your animal in anyway - if you are in the house of peacock,
for example, are your projects often multicoloured and bright?
Interestingly one of the recent projects I made for myself was this cowl..
And those are my colors....how about yours? If interested in seeing other people's answers to the question type 4KCBWDAY4 in a search engine.....
