    A Friendly Reminder - Clear Quarter Suggestion

    I posted New Clear Quarter Cube Idea in Iberian a while back, and Darcy asked me to remind her of it in the spring.

    Well, it's spring! So, will a Clear Quarter be available in either half-mesh or all-mesh this year? Hopefully in Ultraviolet. Yes?

    I'd originally intended to bring this up in person at the April 16th open shop, but alas, I have been told to pack and get on the road April 12th! Boo. I guess my shopping will have to wait until whenever the next open day is.

    (Please don't sell out of Ultraviolet in April... please... hopefully, you have backstock of Dyneema, unless your Dyneema shipments out of Japan weren't affected.)

    Ultramarine? Do you know something the rest of us don't?

    Mea culpa. I was looking at my Seattle Mariners shirt and thinking about the ultraviolet shop bag I won't be buying on the 16th. Sniff.

    Had a 24 oz diet Dr Pepper and the brain's now working. Fixed my above ultramarine typos. Moral of stupid moment: don't type without caffeine!

    There used to be a blue Dyneema. I have lots of pouches in it. I love blue things and would like to see more blue or green Dyneema! Blue and Conifer green key straps. Blue Aeronaut and Co-Pilot... oh, wait, I bought both of those

    Ah, I was hoping for a new colour called "Ultramarine"!

    It sounds like a nice colour! :+>

    a different mesh pouch

    I have been fascinating about a mesh sided pouch too, but I didn't think about the cube. I was thinking about the organizer pouch. I just was fascinating about the feasibility of making a version of the clear organizer pouch with a mesh side vs. the urethane. The mesh I had in mind is like the mesh on this pouch.. I have some of these for my knitting and love the mesh. It's kind of rigid, easy to see through, but the holes are very small so only tiny things escape like pins/needles, crumbs, etc. It's also very easy to wipe clean.

    Tom's working on this -- he may play around with the size a little bit.

    Oh goodness! I'm glad you fixed that! Even I was confused. I even sent Darcy an email asking what Ultramarine was! We will definitely miss you at the first opening at the new space!

    Is this still an option that is being considered? A mesh sided OP, or mesh sided quarter cube?

    Rub it in, why don't you! :-)

    Sapphire Dyneema came and went before I found Tom Bihn. I've been looking for used items for months and months, but none ever surface. I have my fingers crossed that one day, Darcy or Katy will find a box of Sapphire Dyneema pouches and stuff sacks in a hidey-hole somewhere, and I will be able to finally buy some!

    It's still being considered, but we don't know when it would be available.
