Let's Chat!: What are Your Favourite Yarn Colour Combinations?

The Let’s Chat series is a thread on my Ravelry forum where a new conversation topic related to knitting is posted every week. Participants in the threads are entered into a monthly giveaway where they can win either one of my patterns, yarn in my stash or receive a surprise package filled with goodies from Japan!

This week, I'm going to be asking you for your favourite yarn color combinations! Here are some of mine, using Julie Asselin's colorways as examples. I think I'll let the images speak for themselves this week...

hat are your favourite yarn combos? Leave a comment (and if possible images!) on my Ravelry forum here!


Thank you so much for last week's topic: great participation all over the board! I got to see some great pieces of advice from a range of knitters and I think these tidbits are still applicable to all of us, no matter how long we have been knitting for! Here are some of my favourite responses (from Ravelry only, but I loved all the responses I received on IG and FB!)

From hiver74 (this is a great one!):

My advice for Young people should be to do like me : first, knit a lot clothes for puppies. It’s funny, we learn a lot of new stitches, it’s not too long, and we don’t use a lot of yarn. And we can have a lot of very beautiful ensembles : dress, socks, hat, bag, scarve, etc, in the same color!
If this was specific to me, I’d tell myself to take a few days to read a book on fibers (like Clara Parkes’ book) and maybe give spinning a whirl to understand a bit more about yarn before I start going on buying sprees :)

With more education, I’ve moved away from Alpaca (love it, but it doesn’t work in many of the patterns I’ve been making a lot), avoid single-ply yarns and am no longer afraid of some yarn which feels kind of rough (washing and blocking does wonders!).

I also highly recommend getting Clara Parkes' book as well.

From nakamili:

I’d have to tell myself to think of the wearability of a pattern before you start on it.
When I started out I’d knit anything and now I have a few pieces (mainly shawls) that I never wear. Which I find sad because I spent a lot of time on these, but they just don’t match the other things I have in my closet.

Knitting made me a lot more aware of what I like to wear and what looks good on me :)
