Color Lovers

I enjoyed Knit & Crochet Blog Week so much last year, I thought it would be fun to take part in it again this year!

Today's topic is about color. What do you go for? What do you like?

So, here is a flash of the majority of the sock yarn stash:

I think the major thing I see there is solid. Now that most of my knitting projects are my own designs, I find myself gravitating towards the solids and semi-solids. They show off your design way better than a variegated yarn!

There is also kind of a lot of blue/green in there too. I had to send off some of the yarn stash to the publisher to get photographed for my upcoming book (HOORAY!) and I think I sent them kind of a lot of red and purple. So, once that comes back to me, I think my sock yarn stash will be much more rainbow-licious. :)

As for my finished objects...I see a lot of solid there too. What can I say? I have become a sucker for a really good solid/semi-solid yarn.

Come back tomorrow for Day 2 of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. It's Photography Challenge Day!

Happy knitting.


  1. I'm starting to lean more towards solids and semi-solids. Partly because I think they look "neater" and partly because patterns get lost in all the colours of verigated yarn.

  2. I lean towards solids or semi-solids too. When doing anything lacy, I think they look better - nothing distracting from the patterns. My collection tends towards jewel colors.

  3. I love semi-solids for exactly the same reason...the design doesn't get lost in the varigation!
