Just hold tight ...

... and I'm sure this turquoise obsession I've currently got going will pass shortly. 

I don't know why I'm so caught up with this colour right now but I am and there's not a lot I can do about it. If you're not sick of the sight of turquoise then you might be interested to know that these 'Beach Stripes' beads are for sale in my shop, priced at £16.50 per strand.

The colours for this set (and for the 'Beach' beads in the previous post) were inspired by the crochet that I'm working on. Admittedly, the yarn isn't turquoise and it's a slightly greener colour, more celadon or seafoam, but it's similar.

The yarn is Sirdar 'Ella' and it's a cotton blend with a spangly silver thread running through it. I'm just making as many squares as I can from the yarn that I have and then I'll work out what to do with them. Maybe I'll fashion Nigel a natty waistcoat.

Don't forget the prize draw; I'll need your entry by tomorrow night if  you fancy at shot at winning the beads.

Time to crochet another square. Have a fab night!
