Color Lovers - 3KCBWDAY1

Yay! Day one of the 3rd annual Knitting and Crochet Blog week! Do-ta-do! 3KCBWDAY1
Today's topic is color! I love this topic because I always considered myself a true lover of color and thought I was pretty good with color. For years anyone who came to my house knew that I was not afraid of using different colors all over.
But as I started to crochet more, I found that I was being very safe. I didn't use many colors in an item or I found myself coming back to more "Fall" neutral colors.
I don't understand it. I completely swoon and immediately am overcome with jealousy when I look around the blogosphere and see Lucy's items in her little Attic 24 or Sarah London's wool eater blankets.
But when I go into the yarn store, I see the beautiful colors and my mind just is overwhelmed. What goes with what? CanI really use that together? I blame my 12 years of Catholic school uniforms! I wasn't trained to put things together I tell you!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
How about you? Do you go to your yarn store and stare at the beautiful colors and walk out safe like me or are you bold and fabulous and make me jealous?
With love,
Auntie Becky


  1. I know how you feel about colour . . . I'm scared of it often. Be brave! You won't regret it!
