I must admit that when buying wool for my projects, it largely depends on the person I am knitting for or the purpose of the project. I made this shawl for example for my darling neighbour. I chose this blue wool as she has blue eyes, but also she is such a caring being that I felt the blue would be the ideal protection for such a beautiful soul.
These red socks were made in fire-engine red for their temperature regulating attributes. Nothing warms your feet and gets the circulation going like some RED. (They are a bit fuzzled from so much wear and tear!)
I used to work as a colour therapist for a while and as such delved deeply into the colours and their symbolism, and I guess through this work I became acutely aware of colours I choose and their deeper meanings. That said it doesn't stop me falling for a gorgeous skein of wool when I see one.
Some of my finished projects - definitely more of earthy tones, but lots of greys and browns.
Thanks for visiting - hope you have a great start to Blog Week!
(3KCBWDAY1)See You tomorrow!
I must come back and edit - After looking at my pictures and stash, I saw just what a creature of habit I am. Yes, my stash has colour in it....but these have either been given to me or bought for a bargain. I so feel the need to change the colours I work with. So I am going to attempt to break the mold and go way out of my comfort zone the next time I buy wool. Will keep you posted!
Hmmmm - interesting and this is only Day 1!
