Turquoise for me please

Funny how I used to loathe the color turquoise as a teenager.
Turquoise was everywhere at that time, THE hot color ! Bracelets and jewelery, t-shirts and whatever. It was too much and I kind of swore to myself I’d never wear turquoise.

BUT. This is precisely the reason why I try never to say never. Right now I have a longing for this color. First wanted turquoise yarn for my Lutine des Fleurs, but was afraid it would be too bright for my complexion (later regretted this choice. Color I chose online is super lovely but not saturated enough for my taste)

Then bought this yarn from Ice yarns. Magice wool deluxe in mixed grays, coal, blues… and TURQUOISE !!
Perfect for a little cropped bolero with long hood I had in mind too. Worked on this on and off since march, while finishing the testing/editing of Floralie.

Finally it’s finished…can I just say it’s perfect ? Perfect for the weather we’re having now in the french Alps (warm enough to wear t-shirts and sandals, SO neat !), perfect to wear this summer at the “Lot et Laine” wool festival,
… and perfect colors of course !!

Both my daughters have already requested I make one for them. And our special young friend Lis. wants one too. Thank god they’re quick to make ! Might take this opportunity to try and size it also for teens for once, now that my daughters are growing.

First had a more lacy edging in mind, but didn’t out as planned so Bobbles appreared instead…
While I love that extra long hood (it’s even longer than on my previous long hoods !!), I’ll try and make it slightly shorter for the girls.
