Karen does the best quizzes, and this time it’s all about colour
What is your favorite colour? How is this colour reflected in your crafting?
My favourite colour is green, specifically Kelly green, which is hardly reflected in my crafting at all because green yarn usually isn’t even an option. The exception being Bonny Lass by Kitty Pride Fibres – the most beautiful yarn I have ever seen ever.
Do you prefer bright colours or more subdued shades?
Brights and jewel-tones all the way, I love colours that pop. E.g. my happy neon Hermione socks:
Does your colour mood shift with the seasons? Do you carry one colour all year and just change the accent colour?
Neither? I love the colours I love and I work with them, it doesn’t really change no matter the time of year. Although while I’m stash-busting, colour has to take a bit of a back seat as I try to just use up what I’ve got.
Is there a colour you avoid? Or maybe it’s underrepresented in your crafting?
Orange. If someone asked me to make something using orange then I could, but I would never choose it for myself.
When you pick out your crafting supplies how important is colour to you? Is it the first thing you consider or is it a bit further down the list?
It’s usually the first thing I notice, especially when it comes to yarn. That’s why my stash is so very colourful.
Do you ever consciously choose a different colour palette just for the change?
I have done in the past, but I always end up coming back to what I know and love. Lots of vivid, happy colour makes me happy so why wouldn’t I stick with that!
