3KCBWDAY1 - Colour me, knits!

I decided to join the crowd this year and participate in Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. I do not promise  to be here everyday. Life might hit me and it might be the first and the last entry this week from me, so let's see how far I come along.

Colour. My all time favourite would be red. But if I look at my wardrobe, then I do have many browns, blacks, blues and reds. After my pregnancy I did not want to buy all new wardrobe as I was aiming to get back to my initial weight. That is when black and brown took over. I am trying to dare more colour in my outfits, like this Paulie cardigan in Wollmeise (about which I am yet to blog more extensively).


Most of the time my knits are used as accessories to brighten up the outfit. And I do not single out any colour for that. I love my Side Slip Cloche hat just as much as my Honey cowl

Knitting has made me more open to colour.  I do not have any green among my knits, but I feel ready for that. The more accomplished of a knitter I've become, the more appreciative I am of indie dyers and their strong and often unique colours.

Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more participating blogs on the topic, put 3KCBWDAY1 into your search engine.

  1. That Wollmeise is certainly colourful! I think a lot of us struggle with being brave enough to wear really bright colours - we love them, but we don't want other people to hate them!

    Enjoyed your post. :-)

  3. Love the cardigan and the colours too, although I can't make a cardigan in those colours. My skin will turn so pale, so it's nice to see it on your lovely blog. By the way, I took a peek on your ravelry projects and you have some skills girl!

    Oh, and I luuuuuv sushi too. Have you seen the sushi hat on ravelry? It's been on my to-do for ages.

  5. What a fantastic cardigan. I´ve got lots of green knitwear, but I think I might be ready for some orange/yellow like yours. :-)

  6. The color of that cardigan is awesome! Same with the other two projects you've highlighted. I really do love bright colors myself, it just makes the item unique since you usually kind find of those colors in a clothing store. :)

  8. That's interesting - I am the same. Knitting really opened me up to colour too. Like you, it tends to be accessories etc. I find greens quite easy to wear but that fantastic orange/yellow creation (stunning!) would push me outside my comfort zone. Lovely post - thank you. Hope to see you throughout blog week.

  18. I love your bright cardigan! Your post made me realize that I don't have any green knits either. Something about green seems kind of intimidating.
