Color Lovers

3KCBWDAY1 – what does it mean? Well, crafters are a bloggy bunch, and this week many of the knit and crochet bloggers are harmoniously in unison for the Third Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week. Today’s topic is Color. Colour is one of our greatest expressions of ourselves when we choose to knit or crochet, so how do you choose what colours you buy and crochet or knit with. Have a look through your stash and see if there is a predominance of one colour. Do the same with your finished projects – do they match? Do you love a rainbow of bright hues, or more subdued tones. How much attention do you pay to the original colour that a garment is knit in when you see a pattern? Tell readers about your love or confusion over colour. I have indisputable, unabashed favorite colors – grey and purple. Greys from dove to cement to charcoal, even the dirty greys like french grey and the almost black ones like basalt. My favorite greys are cool-toned blueish . . .
