Turquoise is hot right now. From nail polish and pillows to hats and haute couture, we’re seeing shades of beautiful blue-green everywhere. I personally consider turquoise ,”my signature color” (said with a Southern accent a la Steel Magnolias) so there’s no end to the glee I feel on a daily basis as I come across a plethora of aqua items! Here are just a few, dreamy things I’ve spotted on the inter-webs, plus TEN on-trend projects that you can make yourself!

Stop! Wait! Don’t drop that Ultimate Sweater Machine off at the thrift store. I know learning a new tool can be frustrating, but I’m here for you. I promise.

I’m a professional hand-knitter, but still relatively new to using a knitting machine. Using the Ultimate Sweater machine however, became crucial last fall as more and more companies began commissioning large, yarn-bombed pieces from me. Out of sheer necessity, I buckled down and got on board the USM train. Through trial-and-error, I picked up a few tricks that ultimately made my experience more successful. Now I’m sharing those tips, along with answering consumer questions, in 4 videos on the Bond America website. Give ’em a look, and put what you’ve learned to work on your own USM.

Oh, and don’t forget, there are also traditional how-to videos and 24-hour help available, too! Learn more here.
