If you’d have asked me what my favourite colour was before I got involved in spinning and, to a lesser extent, knitting I could have confidently told you it was purple. I wouldn’t have defined the shade and although I would have gone for the darker end of the spectrum out of choice I would have been happy with anything.
Now I find myself unable to name a colour without inserting an adjective first. Colours are now rusty orange, lemon yellow or Tardis blue.
I bought a cardigan in what I am currently considering to be “my perfect green” from United Colors of Benetton. It is like a dark apple green and make me think of the 1950s (which I doubt is historically accurate) but it was buying this that reawakened my love for the colour. Today my favourite colours include many shades of green.
I find I am drawn to greens for knitting, spinning and wearing.
Here are some of my favorite greens that I have knit, spun or will do soon and last but not least a lovely green for drinking.
