This week there will be a blog post every day in celebration of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week.
If your interested in finding more blogs on Knitting and Crochet now is a great time to find them! By just Googling 3KCBWDAY1 you'll find blogs that are currently participating and many of us are also doing giveaways. You can learn more about my giveaway at the end of this post.
I decided to participate in KCBW to kind of shake things up around here. Everyday there is a topic and in a way its an open house to let people learn more about use bloggers.
Today is all about color.
Now I love color, but you would never tell. I don't wear too much color as I prefer comfort over fashion and believe that a shawl is best worn with plain clothing so it stands out like a fine work of art.
I tend to go through phases with color. Sometimes it last months or just a mere week. At Stitches West I was in a short lived purple phase which made me buy a huge bag of yarn in a color I'm now not too fond of. But as I'm a dyer I can dye it into another color!
Right now I'm in a bright color phase. It's spring, the sun is shining and all I want is a bright top (right now I'm wearing a bright yellow green top).
When I'm dyeing I take a look at what is in the shop and make lists of colors it's missing. Then I go look at what I currently have in my favorites on Etsy. Since I'm usually shopping for fiber to spin I put a lot in my favorites and I use it as an idea bored when I can't figure out what colors I need. When all else fails I have a safety network of artists that dye with me and as many have heard me say "It'll work itself out." Caren is one of my frequent dyers and she usually leans toward Noro types of colorways, which I do not.
What are your favorite color combination?
