springtime colour - turquoise
I've done it again - shopped for yarn while I have a stash and queue full! Went to my LYS and found a window of blue yarns and a shawl. Inside, lots of displays of cottons, silks, and lighter-weight yarns. Made me feel like abandoning my bulky wool pullover right away! I've had my eye on the cover pattern of the latest Vogue Knitting for a while - like the mesh, the length, and the style of it:

I decided on Berroco Weekend DK (cotton and acrylic blend) in the Turquoise colourway:Photo needs tweaking. Skein photo from http://www.berroco.com/yarns/berroco-weekend-dk. I love the shade and the smooth texture of the yarn. Should be fun to work on!
I also have my turquoise Paloma in the queue, so next two projects will be in the blues. The Pantone Spring 2014 color card includes a Placid Blue (under the sketch of the woman) that is fairly close to my yarn colour.
