3KCBWDay1 – Colour Lovers

I decided at the last minute to participate in the 3rd Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. For more details click the little graphic up there! Today’s topic is color.


I’m a bit of a color fanatic. I have a very colorful wardrobe, but I used to avoid equally colorful knits because I was afraid that I wouldn’t get as much wear out of them.


I spend so much time knitting my sweaters that I wanted them to be sophisticated subdued colors that I could wear forever. This completely ignored the fact that loud colors make me happiest and are what I generally end up wearing.


I managed to shake the habit of buying yarn in colors I don’t wear last year and I’ve knit these colorful sweaters. I’m hoping to keep knitting loud bright sweaters this year because they fit nicely in my wardrobe and get worn all the time. If I ever decide that I need more sophisticated colored sweaters I can always knit more, right?

    I love the bright bright colors too. I save my Boden catalogs for ideas on new ways to combine bright colors. My favorite color is medium to dark pink because I can’t look at it and not be happy. Spring green too. Ahhh joy!
