Today’s assignment is to write about color. What a wonderful topic! If you were to ask me what colors of yarn I gravitate towards I would say purples, pinks, greens and I love variegated yarns of any color. I think my love for variegated comes from my inability to commit to one whole color (and most likely my Libra trait of general indecision…).
Now, what colors have I actually knit with over the past year? I just bought a new camera and my phone is a year old so any pictures of my knitting for the past year are on my phone so I went through and here’s what I came up with.
Not bad!!! There are a lot of pinks and purples in there. I do enjoy the colors of fall and tend towards beiges and browns for neutrals. I realized that when I went to pick out a shawl to wear with something black. Put that on the list of things to knit…
Now the scary part! Compare all this to my stash. When I moved two years ago in my home and was single I decided to devote an entire room to my stash, because why not?? It’s all my space, I don’t have to share with anyone!! The nice (or bad) thing about this is I can see it all, all the time. Some days it calls my name and some days it just taunts me.
I would definitely identify this as my stash! But I think we all tend to fall into color ruts. I know in our knitting group who is going to choose the blue and who is going to choose the orange/red. Maybe the next time I start a new project I will remember this and choose something new!
