I'm Sensing a Trend


I understand that we all have favorites in terms of color. These favorites help stylize our knitting and I think that's really cool. Lately, I have loved dusty blue-ish green-ish teal-ish. It's so Annie. I can't seem to get enough of it, to the point that I almost can't help it. Honestly, I'm getting a little bored with this color family. My knitting seems a little "one note" these days. I usually see color style as a family of colors, not just one color. So I have decided to move on and knit with a larger variety of colors.


Now everything is pinks and plums!

Baby steps. *sigh*

I'm nearly always orange/red/brown colours. So I'm impressed that you can go to a new family, I'm not sure I could do it ;)

Well, it's better to knit with what you love. I'm sure we all have yarn in our stash that is perfectly lovely except the color does nothing for us.

I love the collage of blue, very soothing ;-)

I go through stages like this too. It's so normal to gravitate to certain colors. I noticed too that the new colors are a beautiful counterpoint to the blue-grays. What about mixing the two??

i know. i look at my projects and stash and it is grey, green, and tan....arggg, loads of it. i am trying to branch out into the blue territory, we will see how it goes. i do love all the projects, though. nothing wrong with the colors you love.

Tee hee! I really enjoyed your illustration of "from one thing to the next." I go through phases of colors, too. Perfectly understandable, but also very funny!

Everytime I see yarn in dusty blue-ish green-ish teal-ish I immediately start thinking of you :-)

At least you like pretty colors! If not for Project Spectrum, I would only knit in black/grey and white!

Picasso had a rose period too, consider yourself a knitting genius! Either way, all the knit are gorgeous, and each shade so pretty, I can see how they keep tempting their way into your stash. :)
