Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this time we all are going through,- together 🧡
I’m knitting, but I haven’t very much colours and yarn to choose between anymore 🧶. I have what I have in my home, in my “yarn- corner”. I know I can order more yarn on an norwegian online yarn shop. The shop is actually just not online, it’s based in a town very close to where I live. It’s possible to order yarn from this shop online during this quarantine and curfew time, and get the yarn delivered on my door, but it’s not possible to go to the shop and take a look at the yarn and different colours at the moment.
This yarn- shop has photos and images I can take a look at, but for me it’s not the same, special when I don’t know what I’m going to knit 😊🧶. And I also like to take a look at the yarn for real, so I can get a better impression and imagination of the different colours. Because colours changes a bit during different ligth- settings.
Normally I buy yarn in a China- store, or get “leftover” yarn from my friends and family in Norway when they are visiting me here in Spain. I can forget about getting both “leftovers” yarn from Norway this year as well as visits from my friends and family from Norway. At the moment it seems that Spain is not going to open the border for tourists before in October. And my friends and family are in general not travel to Spain after October. Maybe it will be different this year, but I don’t think so.
The yarn in the China- store is cheaper then the yarn in the Norwegian online store, at the same time the Norwegian yarn is much better then the Spanish yarn. It’s better hold in it, and better quality. But leftover yarn my friends and family are giving me are cheaper, because I get it 😅, but also because Norwegian yarn are cheaper to buy in Norway then buy it here in Spain.
Anyway,- I did try to knit a a tunic with tank top to my self during the last weeks. Or maybe it was more like a shirt with tank top? In my imagination it was very cool, and it also did look cool after I have been knitting more then over half of the top/ tunic too, except from one thing. The colours are not my colours 🧶. I know I’m never going to use the top/ tunic, just because of the colours. I was happy with the design, but the colours didn’t match me at all. So I pulled up my entire tunic top.
It’s absolutely nothing wrong with the colours they just don’t match me and my colours. Most of the colours are colours I’m in general are not using, – and I’m not going to feel comfortable in this colours either, or the colour match and mix. It’s different pink and violet colours, because,- well I haven’t very much yarn left to choose between in my “yarn- corner” in my home, so I use what I have and try to be creative 🧶. And I actually needed to knit as much as possible before I could get my imagination about how this tunic tank top would look like on me. The design was good, but the colours was not the best choice for me. I think I can use the yarn to elf- socks to my self instead, or knit something to someone else that match and like this colours better then me 😊.
But colours are a bit different in different light- settings as well as with different mix and match of colours. That’s also why I prefer the take a look at the yarn and colours before I buy it. I like to put together different yarn and colours and see how good or not good they “fit” together, and I can’t do that in a online store 😊.
In general I use white background when I’m trying to find colours as well as mix different colours combination together. I also use white background when I take photos of my paintings, because the correct colours shows better with a white background then with a black background, or a background with other colours 🎨.
I actually have a tank top in very light pink colour, and I’m use that tank top too during the summertime, but the it’s less pink then it was in my knit tunic top, and I feel okay with that. It is the combination of colours, how much it is from the different colours and also the design on the clothes that wasn’t a very good mix for me.
I like to use different colours combination together, at the same time it is important for me to feel comfortable with the colours combination I’m using. And I didn’t feel very comfortable with the colours combination in my knit tunic top, but this colour combination could be a perfect mix of colours for someone else 😊.
I have started on an other knit project now,- a combination of tunic and jacket to my self in a dark blue colour with a touch of grey. So fare it also seems to be something I’m going to use when I’m finish knitting the tunic/ jacket. The design is fine, of course 😅, I did create it on my own, like I did with the tunic top, and this dark blue colours feels better for me.
Do you have any favourite colours on your clothes? Some colours and combinations you prefer to use? And do you have some colours and colours combination you absolutely don’t use because you don’t feel comfortable with the colours and the mix?
I like a lots of different colours and colours combination, and I do use different colours and colours combination too on different outfits. But I also have colours I don’t use, or I don’t feel comfortable in 🎨.
Well,- I have at the moment some different pink coloured yarn I can knit some elf- socks to my self, or create something to someone who like the colour mix I have left in my “yarn- corner “. Time will show, first of all I’m going to finish knit my tunic- jacket, and then we see. Maybe even the China- store is open again when I finish with my tunic- jacket so I can buy some more yarn in different forms, shapes and colours, and start on a totally new knit- project 🧶😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊.
This sweet colour mix and combination was not correct for me 🧶. I did try to knit a kind of, or a combination of a “tunic tank top” to my self with this colours combination, and I actually did I pulled up my entire “tunic top” when I was closely finish with it 😊. You will find the “tunic tank top” in my post, like it was before I started pull it up 🧶😊.
