What colours do you tend to buy when you shop for yarn or fabric? That is the question I am going to answer today. I'm going to look at this in parts. What I favour when I buy, what I have actually used in my projects and what I have in my stash. Will they be the same? Let's find out!
What do I buy?
I love colour and generally like anything that is bright and colourful. I love multicoloured fabrics and variagated yarns, probably why I love sock yarn. I buy lots of purple, teal and pink as these are colours I love. I know now that I avoid black, white, cream and brown unless they are for a particular project and generally that will be for someone else.
What have I used in my projects?
Lots of purple. Lots and lots of purple in jumpers and cardigans. I have also used pink and turquoise and many variagated yarns in shawls and blankets. I have used green for a gorgeous hooded cardigan which isn't a colour I'd normally used but is an item I wear a lot.
What do I have in my stash?
My stash contains: purple, teal, pink, turquoise, lots of variagated sock yarns in various colours and some cream. I have sparkly yarn aswell as I love a bit of sparkle.

It is really interesting to look at my yarn colours and see that I use lots of the same colours. I do feel that I need to expand my colour choices. I'd love to introduce some more green and orange into my stash as well as grey.
Take a look at your yarn stash. What colours do you have? Do you tend to be drawn to the same colours?
