KCBW 2012 Color Lovers - 3KCBWDAY1
Happy Monday everyone!! I am going to try and participate in this years Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. I have a busy week ahead so no guarantees.
Today's topic is color. I am a lover of all colors. You might have a hard time telling that if you could see my house. My husband is one of those people who likes white walls and neutral furnishings. Me on the other hand, I love color. The spaces that I occupy the most tend to be full of color.
I tend to pick colors by mood. I always ask my son, when we are picking his clothes for school that day, "what color do you feel today". And of course his answer is always different. Sometimes he even picks more that one color. Yellows make me happy. Greens make me feel energetic. Red is a very energetic color also. My favorite color though has to be Blue, as I'm sure you can tell from my blog. To me, Blue is a calming color. I read somewhere that scientist have found that the color blue causes the body to produce chemicals that are calming. This may be why we all like to be around blue. God knew what he was doing when he made the sky blue. Looking through my stash, I have a lot of blue, yellow, and green yarn. I have a little of the other colors also but those seem to be primarily the colors that I buy. There are all different shades of those colors in my stash. Maybe it is because these colors are found together in nature. Blue Sky, Yellow Sun and Green Grass. As a child, and even now, one of my favorite things to see was a rainbow. Not only is it a promise from God but it is full of his beautiful colors.
What are your favorite colors?
