Turquoise is Pantone color of the year for 2010

Pantone is the group in New York City that decides each year what the IN colors will be for fashion and home dec.  They have chosen turquoise for this year.  Here is their site.

One good thing about this choice is folks will have the chance to learn to spell turquoise.  Check your jewelry box for any forgotten Southwestern jewelry.  Finally, we can feel a bit “beachy” all year.

I’ve checked the stash and found a few things and I intend to jump on the fashion bandwagon.  A new cotton sweater looms—-but only after I finish a few things.

I bought the following from elann.

Lustrado peacock green–a fingering weight cotton, maybe sport.  Crisp spin and good color.  Mercerized cotton which is my favorite because it holds up better.

Nilo jade–a DK weight multi-ply cotton, not mercerized so not as bright as the Lustrado.  Jade isn’t really turquoise, but who’s counting.

The Lustrado may find its way into a spring Endless Cardi Wrap and the Nilo may be mixed with others in a pillow top.  The nice thing is I don’t have to decide now.
