Crochet Blog Week Day One: Colore

It’s Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2012!

Today’s Crochet Blog Topic

The suggested topic for today is color. All of us are crochet bloggers are talking about what colors we choose and why, what colors we hate and why, ecc.

My Favorite Color Combo

I always say that my favorite color combination is blue and grey (any shade of either but always the two combined together). You may remember that from my Blue and Grey Etsy Crochet Treasury. When I go to look at yarn at a fiber festival, that’s always what I want to pick up. I think it’s a classy but cool color combination. The funny thing is that I don’t actually make many crochet things with this color combination. I don’t even wear the color combo very much. I like it but maybe it’s not my true true favorite after all.

Looking at Some Color Charts

I decided to look at some color charts online to see what colors I naturally drift to based on my initial response to them. I checked out the color charts at Webmonkey, Visibone and the Color Charts project. Although I did find myself drawn to the blues on each page I was initially really drawn to the bright pinks, reds and purples.

Color Personality Tools

I didn’t know what to make of this discovery so I decided to use some color personality tools and quizzes online. First I used the one at Better Homes and Gardens and it told me this:

My gut instinct immediately disagrees with this. I don’t like coral at all for crochet or decorating or anything else. I do like how it talks about pairing it with grey and yellow (another color combo I love) and I like that this is a feminine color but nope, BHG got it wrong. Then I took two more color personality tests (What’s my Color from Quiz Meme and BlogThing’s My Power Color) and got yellow and indigo. I kind of think there’s not much to these quizzes.

My Recent Rainbow Crochet Fetish

I do confess that lately a lot of the crochet items I’m drawn to on Flickr, Pinterest and Etsy are rainbow colored. I love what Attic 24, Bunny Mummy and Le Monde du Sucrette do with this type of crochet. I don’t make it myself because I really don’t enjoy changing colors frequently but it’s definitely what I like looking at. I also love the stuff Babukatorium fa. Mio Colors Around a Granny treasury reflects this current interest.

So I guess the answer is that I don’t know what I like in crochet color right now but I do know it when I see it! icon smile Crochet Blog Week Day One: Color
