So I was knitting away on a sample mitt for the beginning knitting class when something unusual struck me.
Guess I’m having a red moment!
I’ve noticed that many of us tend to favor the same colors, or a particular palette. Whether it be in our homes, our wardrobes, or our yarn stashes, the same colors seem to find their ways into our hearts time and again. Sometimes we like to challenge ourselves to take more color risks and venture outside our comfort zones. That’s probably how I ended up with a few of those skeins that just can’t seem to find the right project!
I’m pretty liberal with my color choices. As long as it’s a saturated tone, any shade has equal opportunity to end up in my wardrobe or yarn stash. Except peach and beige; I’ve always had a hard time with those! But lime green, fuscia, silver, camel, or indigo? Yes, please, with sparkles on top!
What are your color habits? Do you approach color with trepidation, or are you a fearless color fanatic? Is your taste in color different in yarn than it is in other areas? I’d love to hear your habits and thoughts!
Remember, this is a big weekend at Stash: Gallery Event Saturday 6-9pm, Knitted Wit & PDX Knitterati Trunk Show Sunday 1-4. Have a great one!
