Blurred on a Wire, or
Please Re-leaf me
It's Mallard Green off to an early lead. Hot on his heels is Pacific Blue. It's Mallard Green and Pacific Blue.
Cherry Red is being ridden by ex-police officer Natural Copper - he changed careers when he got tired of dealing with the Brass. He had his Gunmetal Bronze-ed and now he operates in the Black.
But wait - I told you it would be hard to gauge - 12 gauge that is!
Halo Gold is coming up fast, followed by Bright Blue and Fuchsia. And they are coming up to the wire - there's a newcomer beating his way through the pack, it's ... yes - it's Rose Gold by a nose (or about 2.5 mm - 10 gauge!) - Stainless Steel-ing the win!
Meh - it might have ended differently if the rider had been Light Copper instead!
60 new wire products this week - to get your pulse racing. New colours, new sizes, and we've even added some Stainless Steel wire - actual stainless steel - not just the colour. It's a little stiffer than the copper-cored, coloured wire.
The large gauge wire - 12 gauge - which is 2 mm wire - is aluminum - which makes it wonderfully easy to manipulate too. Yes - it is a little confusing to have Light Copper Aluminum wire - but you'll get used to it!
If the wire doesn't do if for you - so if you're "like, y r u telling me all this" - sorry I had to do that pun - it's in my contract - well - re-leaf is at hand. (That one wasn't in the contract - I threw that one in for free.) You can have Avocado Vine Leaves. Or Wild Cherry leaves.
There's no point in Raku-ing me over the coals - because I'm Not Jaded At All. Instead, we could sit out by the Smokey Plum Tree and order some Honey and Lager.
So whether you're from Newfoundland and Labrador, or you prefer the Celtic Mysts, it's almost summertime, and the Beading is Easy.
