Day Four: Colour Review

It doesn't take an infographic to scientifically analyse my stash and determine my colour preferences. A quick rummage through the stash easily visible, or a quick peruse of my projects page shows that I am predominantly a 'cool' colour person.

I have no objection to pinks/oranges/yellows but by preference particularly when making items for myself I am drawn to the soft muted blues, greens and greys with an special fondness for purple.

So, no surprises here - the 0% relates to yellows and oranges of which I have precisely zero in my stash.

Maybe I should be more adventurous with colour - I love to see warm bright colours on other people - just not me.

Day Three: Infographic

This was another example of perfect timing.

We are in the middle of a bit of home re-decorating and I have been forced to unearth my stash (all of it) and rehome it elsewhere. I decided to organise it by weight so that I could easily find what I was looking for and so the subject for todays infographic easily presented itself.

I obviously tend to favour sock weight and dk weight yarn as that accounts for the bulk of my stash. No surprises there then. I do have a few beautiful skeins of laceweight which I'm too scared to use, and bulky yarn tends to hurt my hands after a while.

Whilst I was at it, I grouped it by colour as well - more about that later in the week.
