Day 1: Colour lovers


 This is day 1 of Eskimimi's Knit & Crochet Blog Week: It's a week with crafting-themes for one blogpost each day. This might be a difficult, but mostly a fun job! So without further ado: Day One!

Day One is about colour. What colours inspire me, what colours do I knit in, and what colours would I like to knit in more? To answer this, I've made a line-up of my latest projects. These are some close-ups of some of the projects I've knitted so far, focussing on the colours I've used for them.

My most recent projects (Logo not mine, but Eskimimi 's)


Looking at this I can draw a few conclusions:
  • I really like orange and blue.
  • Lately I've used almost exclusively 'Sheep colour' (that is a colour, right?)
    Indeed, 'Sheep' is one of my favorite colours when it comes to yarn, even though I like bright colours in most every other thing in life.
  • I'm a bit surprised to find little...or no green or red on my ravelry project page as those are both colours I really like. As for the green I'm fixing this with some current projects.

Red is a bit more difficult for me. I do own and wear a lot of red pieces, but for some reason red yarn intimidates me. This has to do with my hair colour. The problem is that "Red clothes + Red hair" sometimes seems to clash. It's very important to know wether or not the shade of red is suited to my hair, and since I order yarn online, it's impossible to be sure of that.

However, I do plan to do more red in the future. Perhaps I'll make this one, with red as a main colour? Because admit it: Red Rocks!

Hey Nelson,
Ziet er inderdaad erg gezellig uit. Duidelijk te zien welke kleuren je voorkeur hebben. Grappig en handig om er nog een kleur bij te zoeken.
Groeten doei.

Ja grappig he? Normaal denk ik er niet zo over na, maar goed iedereen heeft bewust of onbewust toch voorkeuren in kleuren en dus ook welke kleuren ze dragen :)
