I have a fondness for soft and fuzzy things. Rabbits and such. So I was very pleased to finally unpack my yarn and fiber from its cardboard box into a chest of drawers this week. It makes me happy to look at and run my hands across.
Now as you can see, I really like gray. But blue, green, orange, red, pink, and brown are also represented here. I like lots of colors. But there is a pattern.
A little color theory review. There are three aspects of any given color that make it different from other colors. And there are about three different words for each of those aspects, so don’t get too picky about vocabulary here. First there is the hue of the color, whether it is reddish or blueish. Second there is how light or dark the color is, how close similar it looks to white or to black. And third there is saturation, how glowingly bright or dim and gray a color is.
I like gray. And all those other colors I like too? I like them best when they have a bit of gray in them. Mmm, less saturated colors.
