I love pastel colours!
I'm trying to collect a load of them at the moment for a blanket crochet-a-long. I don't think I use that many of them in general though. I like to make small amigurumi projects, so I like to have lots of different basic colours, so that I can make true-to-life colour animals.
I recently bought 8 different colour 50g balls of acrylic yarn just for this purpose!
I have started using the yellow and orange, but the others are all stashed away.
Now: here are pretty much all the colours I own in my stash..
The last two are the beginnings of the pastels for my blanket :)
In terms of my yarn relating back to my house. I suppose my hexagon blanket (WIP) could be seen as relating to me being a bee. I keep flitting between it and other projects, because making a hexagon doesn't take too long. The hexagon is the shape bees use for their hives and the yellow rows will be yellow and black! So that worked out well! I do prefer my baby blanket though (giant granny square) as it is a very relaxing project that I can easily do in front of the TV. I love the colours of that blanket too.. I never would've put them together myself, but all the yarn came in a pack together, and I just used them in the order my hands came to them.. then repeated it when I got through them all!
If you want to see the colours other people like to work with search 4KCBWDAY4 to find tonnes of other blogs taking part in knitting and crochet week :)
