4KCBWDAY4: Colour Review

4KCBWDAY4 Colour ReviewWhat are your favourite colours for knitted or crocheted projects. Have a think about what colours you seem to favour when yarn shopping and crafting.

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 correlate?

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?

I love multicolour wool – I love how it changes as your work progresses. For individual colours I think it’s probably pinks and purples although green and blues would be my favourite colours.

My current “handbag project” is a lemon yellow square for the Macmillan blanket, yesterday I was working on a green one having finished a blue one before going to the Scone Roses Stitch ‘n’ Bitch night (ugh that name annoys me – Knit and Natter doesn’t quite have the same ring but at least you don’t feel mean about it lol).

I think actually looking at my projects they are pinks and purples. I finished a kit I was given at Christmas and that was a magenta pink colour, following that I started the Baby Blanket which I called Max, I then worked and finished a blanket for a family member which didn’t really stick to one colour – each square was different to it’s neighbours. I’m now working on squares for the Macmillan blanket which pretty much come down to what I have – it’s currently a good project to clear out some of my stash!
