What you may not know about me is that I’m a color nerd. I do not think I see color the way average people do. My world is incredibly vibrant and I love it. I’ve spent a lot of my years painting, drawing, graphic design, publication design, web design and I love color (that much you do know about me). My dream job in life? Picking colors and the color of the year for Pantone. That’s the ultimate for me. So I am always excited when the next year’s Color of the Year is announced.
Greenery is right up my alley AND I feel like I’ve been a little ahead of the trend with my strong green color palette thus far this year.
My green has a bit more yellow in it than Greenery does but hey, green is great no matter what the shade is in my book. In 2015 I realized I wasn’t knitting with a lot of green and it’s my absolute favorite color. Something just felt off. Once I added more green into my knitting I was much happier with my projects. Who knew a little color shift could make such a big difference in how I felt about my knitting? I do see a shift though and a need to add a few more neutrals into my knitting in 2017. I’ve got a lovely charcoal grey that will become a basic shawl collared cardigan to wear with everything. Since I wear a lot of color sometimes I need something more neutral to help ground it. So I definitely see more along those lines next year but this color Greenery just might spark me to keep going with my green theme.
What color do you love to knit with?
