For Mineral Monday this week we are going to do something a little different.
Some of you might not know but I am a transplanted Canadian who has lived in the Bahamas for the past 13 years. I love my adopted home and am very fortunate to enjoy the beauty of life on this island every day. I wanted to come up with a colourway that was a tribute to the beauty of the Bahamas.
The Bahamian colours are turquoise, yellow and black. The black color represents the strength and will power of the people, yellow the sandy beaches, and the aquamarine blue symbolizes the spectacular Caribbean Sea.
I think I have come up with a beautiful representation of these and am going to do something a bit different with these colourways. Since they are a special group and not part of our permanent lineup (at least not yet!) I am going to do this via pre order.
The three colours are as follows,
Bahamaland, a gorgeous turquoise melding into a deep gold with black speckles
Bahamian Islands, turquoise and gold with some beautiful greens as well
And lastly we have Bahamas as One, a beautiful amalgamation of all the Bahamian colours, very reminiscent of our beautiful waters here.
All three colours will be available on a variety of bases so there should be something for everyone. They would make amazing bright winter accessories and on the fingering bases some kick butt socks!
Check them out at our our shop and act fast as they will only be available to pre order until next Monday.
In other news it looks like there is going to be a postal strike next month. If you are thinking of picking up some of our yarn is would recommend ordering asap so we can get it out to you before there are any issues. We have looked into other means of shipping and will be able to use FedEx but it will be a greater expense and might not be cost effective if you are looking and purchasing a skein or two. We will keep you updated here and in our shop announcements!
As always we love to hear what you think so feel free to post a comment and let us know how we are doing!
