March Craft Madness

Hi Everyone!
Yes, it’s time for March Madness! And in this instance, we here along Tobacco Road are not talking about basketball…that other madness. We are talking about all the wonderful fiber-related events and projects, which are ushering in the spring season. Here are just some of the highlights causing all the excitement.

Go Green Aquamarine for March!
Happy Birthday, March babies! Our latest color offering in our Gemstones line is Aquamarine, the birthstone for March.

The aquamarine’s name is derived from the Latin word for seawater. A Roman legend stated that the stone absorbs the atmosphere of young love: “When blessed and worn, it joins in love, and does great things.” Aquamarines were once considered a very appropriate morning gift to give to a bride by her groom following the consummation of their marriage. It was also once known as a stone whose properties when worn would render marital love and soldiers in battle as invincible.

What do WE love about Aquamarine? We love that it is one of nature’s colors, representing both water and sky. The merging of soft blues and greens ensure it stands beautifully alone but also goes with so many other fiber colors. This color is practically a staple and looks good with every skin tone and hair color. Want some suggestions for this lovely new color way? Make a beautiful t-shirt like Westbound by designer Elizabeth Doherty (above right), perfect for spring and summer. Or combine it with another color in an amazing shawl like 4-Ever in Blue Jeans by designer Cally Monster (above left). We love it with Silver Lining for an airy, mystical feel, with Fawn for a warm and cozy feel, or with a freckled yarn like Frolic for the fun and whimsical. However you choose to wear this treasured gemstone, get it soon because Aquamarine is a Bo Peep, and we will lose her on March 20, 2019.
