my project page on Ravelry will clue even the least observant person into the fact that clearly, I have a thing for blues. Blues, greens, teals, purples, pale greys... I am a cool-color kind of girl. In fact, anything not made of colors on the cooler end of the spectrum were either 1) socks or 2) gifts for other people. In fact-- I'm just going to say it-- I hate orange. I own exactly one orange shirt and wear it very rarely. And you know what? I'm not sorry. Red is ok if it is a deep deep maroon. Pink is iffy but sometimes doable. Yellow is alright in moderation, especially if it's a nice bright happy yellow. Brown can be kind of icky, it depends on the brown. But the other end of the spectrum? It rules at life!
I read an interesting blog entry about color preferences by gender. Turns out, I am an utterly predictable average female. Fully 72% of female participants listed either blue, purple, or green as their favorite color and 33% (the largest percentage) listed orange as their least favorite color. Blue is favored by both genders, actually, but 0% of men liked purple. Interestingly, my Fiasco is a rather unpredictable male with brown as his favorite color (only 2% listed it as favorite and the largest percentage (27%) listed it as least favorite). Go figure!
My most recent project highlights my color preferences fairly well, I think:

How do you feel about color?
