If asked, I'd tell you my favourite colours are turquoise, pinky-purple, grey, green (not grass nor British racing green but chartreuse, olive, lime etc.), I wouldn't say no to blue or black, wouldn't turn my nose up at red and I could go on. But I'd be lying.
Without a doubt my favourite colour is yellow in all it's gaudy glory; golds, mustards, daffodils, sunflowers, browns,...Of course I've always been partial to the colour but was made aware of the degree of my partiality earlier this week by Sarah pointing out that I returned from my holidays with 5 very different yarns that are all the same colour!
Really? Surely not.
To get to the bottom of this, I pulled out all remotely yellow skeins in my stash and took a picture. I'll let you be the judge.
Hmmm, the girl might have a point.
But what am I to do? If I'm drawn to it, I'm drawn to it and there's nothing wrong with that. Or is there? Did I mention that I don't even wear these colours particularly well? Ah, I left out that little detail, didn't I? Yes, well there you have it. This discussion came about because I may or may not have declared I wouldn't return from my holidays with the usual suspects i.e. anything yellowish. So what did I return with? That would be 5 skeins which are pretty close on the colour spectrum! But I did get other yarns too.
I know I am not alone here. Some folks REALLY love grey (here's looking at you, mooncalf) others (like jenny) gravitate towards purple and believe it or not there's even some folks (o.k. maybe just one) that REALLY like orange (*coughs* nicola).
Now I'm done pointing fingers, I ask:
- if your stash (and if you don't have a stash then your wardrobe/walls...) had to consist of just one colour, which would it be?
- What is the most frequently occurring (the mode) colour in your stash (your wardrobe/walls...) right now?
- if you do have a favourite colour, do you find you have to consciously decide to buy other colours or are you an equal opportunity colour lover that just happens to have one fave? (like me)
