What are you knitting with most?
What is your favorite color?
Do you have any colors you refuse to knit or crochet with?
What is the color you buy when shopping?
Then, what are the dominant colors of your FOs? Do they match what is in stash? Or no?
And finally, are you inspired to buy the same color that is featured on the pattern?

I do believe that the many artworks I viewed over my four years affected my preferences in knitting and in home decor.

As for a pattern influencing my fiber purchase, hmmmmm.... I don't think there is a sweater yet that has been the same as the pattern photos. I am more inclined to shop for yarn in a manner that will bring color to my closet.

I don't have permission to copy the colors here, but trust me when I tell you, navigate to above links to Indigdragonfly Yarns and check out her colors and more importantly the color names, My two faves are My World is All Askew, (pumpkin aspiring), and We Gotta Go to the Crappy Town Where I'm a Hero, (tobacco leaf aspiring).
(If you want to see the names easily, hover over the color chips and the name appears. Mirth ensues shortly afterwards..... almost as good as some of the OPI color names, [nail polish, OPI nail polish].
