Terrific Teal

Teal, turquoise, deep blue green….ah…whatever you call it, this is one of my favorite shades on the color spectrum! I love the cool yet deep color, rich and relaxing all at the same time. In fact, I just finished a set of beautiful teal fingerless gloves, and it is all I can do not to keep them for myself instead of putting them up for sale at Lemon Lane Organics! Since I find this color so inspiring, I thought I would put together a collection of some terrific teal finds from a few of my friends over on the Christian Artists Street Team. I hope you like what you see here!

A little look book fun!

I have been having fun making more little flat caps for my Etsy shop, this time in larger sizes for toddler and preschool boys! It occurred to me that these would be super cute accessories for little ring bearers to wear for weddings, so I thought it would be fun to put together a “look book” using the color of one of my hats for inspiration. Etsy is a great place for brides to find beautiful, unique items for a handmade wedding, so it was easy to come up with this collection for a bright orange and teal wedding. Let’s take a peek!

Mohair gift yarn

I was at work the other day when one of the parents came up to me in the hall and handed me a little bag of yarn. She said she wanted me to have it because she was never going to use it. And she told me it is mohair from France! The turquoise yarn is quite bulky and definitely hand-spun. It’s rather rough, so I’m not sure what I will use it for yet. As you can see from this photo, it has little flecks of black spun into the turquoise–simply lovely!

The black yarn is very soft mohair, and it appears to be sport weight or something. I’ve never really used anything lighter weight than baby yarn, so I’m not really sure. I just know it is fairly thin. I wish I knew how much yarn is here, exactly. It would make a wonderful shrug if there was enough yardage, but I don’t know if there is. Oh well, I may just have to guess-timate and try something!

Anyway, these yarns were a great gift, and I am glad to have them. They’ve certainly got me inspired!
