Shepherd Sock

Twilight - January's Limited Edition Color

(available in Shepherd Sock, Shepherd Sport, Shepherd Worsted, Helen's Lace, Lion and Lamb, Swirl DK, and Swirl Chunky.)

Happy New Year - Welcome to 2010! Wasn't 2010 supposed to be a year in which we're all driving hover cars, eating food capsules for dinner and taking showers via a conveyor belt, just like the Jetson family did?! Well, instead of driving cars through the air, we're driving cars that plug into electrical outlets - and instead of eating capsules that taste like steak and mashed potatoes, we're drinking smoothies full of the day's calories and nutrition. The one thing that hasn't changed over the last 20 years? Our obsession with vampires! That's where the inspiration for this month's color came from: the Twilight movies and our teammate Karla's mild obsession with it (a diehard fan, she skipped sleep to see the most recent premiere at 3am!!).

To be honest with you, i've been holding on to my sample for quite a few months now... just waiting for the right time to release it (and for the right name to give it). Similar to the Black Purl but without the black, this colorway has the most gorgeous transition between colors that I have seen so far...i guess there is a fine line between purple and grey! Anyway, as soon as I showed my to Karla last month, I knew that this color would have to be dedicated to her - and to her love of Twilight. This has got to be one of the prettiest color combos we've ever had (and I'm not a huge fan of purple). I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

By the way, this will be the last month that we have both the Swirl DK, and the Swirl Chunky in the Limited Edition colorways. That said, we do have some other ideas up our sleeves for future months, so make sure to stay tuned!

Now that you're geared up on all kinds of great new sock, sport, and worsted weight yarn, you're going to need some ideas for working with it! Below are a few new things that have hit the shelves - and that we think you might enjoy. :)

Vickie Howell & Adrienne Armstrong Aware Knits
Aware Knits
$22.95

Aware Knits is just that - bringing awareness into your knitting: Where does the fiber come from? If not from an animal (sheep, camel or alpaca), is it renewable (like cotton, soy, jute, bamboo)? Does the production of the yarn help others too? Manos Del Uruguay, a cooperative of over 800 women, benefits so much from hand spinning and hand dying yarns. JBW carries many of the yarns in this book from Manos, Malabrigo, and Blue Sky Alpacas to Vermont Organic and Cascade's ever popular Eco Wool...check it out!!

Interweave Press Interweave Knits Magazine Books - '09 Winter Crochet
Interweave Press - '09 Winter Crochet
$6.99

Now that i'm a master crocheter (ha! I've finished 2 beanies now... and am working on my 3rd... that's about all i can manage), I'm drawn to all of the great projects in the Crochet magazines. For instance, this issue of Interweave Crochet has an adorable version of [Prince] Frog Charming done out of the Blue Sky Dyed Cotton... and a beautiful shawl made from multiple colors of Rowan Kidsilk Haze. Amazing!

With the New Year comes new savings... we just received a HUGE shipment of discontinued Rowan, Mirasol, and Lousia Harding sale yarns. The Silk Wool DK is an obvious favorite, as are the Natural Silk Aran and the Kashmir DK (i'm already lined up on knitting a crocheted beanie for myself - or a little sweater for Huck). And the Mirasol Hacho has been flying out the door faster than we can knit with it - hope you are able to get some of this fun yarn before it's gone!

In a nutshell, if you have a JBW account and made purchases last quarter (October 1st - December 31st), you received an account credit equal to 5% of those purchases (with a few rules, of course).
