"I recognised this immediately, Sharon, as I made a whole blanket using this yarn. Looking back I see that was six years ago! The colours are as beautiful as they ever were."

"This yarn color is called Wildflowers, six colors in very short runs.   I'm sure one of them is turquoise, but you'll have to look closely to find it among the others.  I was able to make 5 crochet squares from one skein of yarn, so that's a plus."

"Thank you ladies. I do like the yarn , it's James C Brett Splash. I bought it BEFORE Covid thinking I would try a clever hat. I have looked at it in my stash for ages and ages, and kept promising myself I would get around to knitting it up. So glad I finally took the plunge. I wish I had kept all my other balls of Splash that I used for other projects. Oh well , off to the yarn store I guess. What a drag.😀"

"Such beautiful shades together. Aspen has long been one of my favourites and I've used it as turquoise in the past. As I see it you can have bluey turquoise or greeny turquoise!"
