You would think I’d go for green when spring peeks up its head but nope, I turn to red.
Everyone has their own relationship with colours and I am no different. I love colour and I love expressing myself with it. With knitting that was one of the big things that drew me to the hobby (or obsession).
In the summer I knit and wear every colour indiscriminately because the sun is out and the air is clear and I have a huge number of pretty skirts to swoosh about in.
Come autumn I switch to purple. This is not a conscious choice but looking back on those later months of 2014, it is undeniable. I wore purple shirts with my purple bag and knitted with purple yarn.
Winter is a grey time. I knit myself a pair of grey socks and wore grey almost every day. I don’t hate this, but I am getting tired of it.
It’s spring! At least the calendar says so even if the weather gods aren’t quite in agreement yet. Somehow spring makes me swing into a world of red. I have bought myself some cashmere sock yarn (it is the best, and you shall see it soon) and it is a lovely rich shade of crimson. My spring coat is red, although I love my purple bag too much to abandon it yet – this is acceptable as the colours combined make me feel like a sentient fuchsia.
What colours do you pick for seasons, or haven’t you noticed a pattern? Am I just odd? (Yes.)
