I do.. I have to remind myself that I don't need any more blue or green yarn all the time. *it doesn't always work either.

Updated almost daily.. honest! I'm moving to Germany this summer! My name on Ravelry is: iwouldratherknit
I buy different colors. I find, though, the problem is that I love so many different colors as far as the skein goes but as far as knitting a wearable garmet the colors won't necessarily work. Bright purple colorways are gorgeous but not as a sweater. (at least not on me) I don't knit socks and perhaps that is one reason why so many do -- any beautiful colorway will work as a neat pair of socks.
I buy many different colors but I'm ALWAYS drawn to rose, pink or mauve colors first!! If I see a yarn that I want but have NO idea what I'll knit I usually get the rose colored one because I know that what ever I knit I'll love it.
Yes; I tend towards blues. And I noticed lately that most of the patterns that I "fawn" over tend to also be made with blue yarn. I've been trying hard to branch out into a different color of the spectrum, but I just love blues and you can mix and match them so much more easily than any other color.
Normally, I'd say I drift toward fall colors. But then, looking at my stash, that's not true. It *feels* true, but it's not. I have pinks, greens, blues, browns, yellows, oranges, purples... some of everything, really. In my personal wardrobe, I tend toward blues and greens and browns, but for some reason, socks and hats break all the rules. I'll wear crazy colored hats and wild socks. ^_^
My favorites are blue and purple. I did see a red that jumped out at me yesterday, but I just couldn't do it. I was shocked that I actually fell for another color! I have too much on my plate now and I at least want to finish one project before I buy more!
