This is day 1 of Eskimimi’s Knit & Crochet Blog Week: It’s a week with crafting-themes for one blogpost each day. This might be a difficult, but mostly a fun job! So without further ado: Day One!
Day One is about colour. What colours inspire me, what colours do I knit in, and what colours would I like to knit in more? To answer this, I’ve made a line-up of my latest projects. These are some close-ups of some of the projects I’ve knitted so far, focussing on the colours I’ve used for them.

Looking at this I can draw a few conclusions:
- I really like orange and blue.
- Lately I’ve used almost exclusively ‘Sheep colour’ (that is a colour, right?)
Indeed, ‘Sheep’ is one of my favorite colours when it comes to yarn, even though I like bright colours in most every other thing in life.
- I’m a bit surprised to find little…or no green or red on my ravelry project page as those are both colours I really like. As for the green I’m fixing this with some current projects.
Red is a bit more difficult for me. I do own and wear a lot of red pieces, but for some reason red yarn intimidates me. This has to do with my hair colour. The problem is that “Red clothes + Red hair” sometimes seems to clash. It’s very important to know wether or not the shade of red is suited to my hair, and since I order yarn online, it’s impossible to be sure of that.
However, I do plan to do more red in the future. Perhaps I’ll make this one, with red as a main colour? Because admit it: Red Rocks!
