Shepherd Sock

Ribbon Candy - December's Limited Edition Color

(available in Shepherd Sock, Baby Me Boo, Shepherd Sport, Shepherd Worsted, Helen's Lace, Solemate, Honor, and Lion and Lamb.

We are so excited this holiday season to offer you a delightful festive treat...with no calories! When we first received a skein of this delectable December color, we racked our brains trying to think of what to call it. Unfortunately, nothing quite stuck so we had a naming contest! Luckily for us, we have a number of clever and helpful customers! Thanks to all of you who participated in the naming process on our LLE Facebook Fanclub page by pitching in names and by voting! A huge thank you goes out to Shirley and her brilliant stroke of insight on the perfect name for this colorway - Ribbon Candy!

Whether or not you have ever tried its tasty namesake, December's LLE color, Ribbon Candy, is sure to add some sweetness to your holiday season. I have no idea how to make the real ribbon candy, but for this colorway the recipe is fairly simple: Use a seasonal red and green base, blend with a fun splash of cotton candy pink and add just a touch of coal black for a lovely contrast. Hand-dye it in your favorite Lorna's weight and voila! This dish is best served when added to hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters... pretty much any pattern you can think of!

All in all, we think Ribbon Candy is the best eye candy for the holidays and we hope you'll join us in decking the halls with it! Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. We wish you all the best this season and far into the new year!

      New Yarns from Be Sweet!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 

If Ribbon Candy isn't enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, check out these brand new yarns from Be Sweet!

With a plethora of beautiful, unique and socially conscious yarns in their repertoire, we didn't think Be Sweet could get any better...until they came out with their new fiber line called "Simply Sweet." This collection is all about the simple pleasures in life - soft, gorgeous yarns at an affordable price, like the sophisticated Satisfaction - a DK weight blend of wool, mohair and alpaca that will work wonders for warm and cozy knits. The heavenly Whipped Cream is a heavy worsted weight blend of wool, kid mohair, and silk, which is perfect for cozy pullovers and close-to-the-skin accessories.

Looking for more? We're now offering the ultra-featherweight Medium Brushed Mohair, which is a super soft 100% baby mohair yarn. Consider this yarn for angelic shawls and wraps! By far the most unique yarn is Bubble Ball, a 100% merino wool yarn strung with felted balls that can move within the skein. Use this yarn to create a truly unique decorative texture by itself or paired with one of your favorite DK or worsted weight yarns. Check out this free cowl pattern on Ravelry from the Yarn Garden!

Love Be Sweet yarns? Be sure to check out our blog on Friday, December 9th for a guest entry from the awesome folks at Be Sweet and also for a chance to win their unique Bubble Ball yarn!

Wool Watcher For more chances to score some of these new Be Sweet yarns at low prices, have your computer tuned on to the Wool Watcher page next Monday, December 5th!

      Lana Grossa Holiday Yarns!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 

We have also added fantastic new yarns from Lana Grossa! These yarns should get you into the holiday spirit! Check out the ultra-luminescent Lace Lux for starters. We brought this yarn to Knitting Lab with samples knit up in it and everyone just couldn't get enough! Who could blame them with its 339 yards of virgin wool extrafine merino and viscose blend? This yarn is so gorgeous (and soft!) that you just have to see it in person to really appreciate it. Shimmery and lustrous, romantic and sensuous, make your holiday season sparkle with a shawl knit out of Lace Lux!

Of course, nothing quite gets you into the holiday spirit like the words "quick knitting"! Big & Easy Colore and Everybody are great choices for the knitters on a deadline. Big & Easy Colore is exactly what it sounds like - a super bulky I-cord yarn that's knit up on a US 15 needle, which makes for easy one-skein projects like hats, cowls, and scarves! With a virgin wool and acyrlic blend, you know you're getting warmth and strength with each project. Similar to the Colore, Everybody is a merino wool and polyamide bulky weight fiber that's great for everything from hats and bags to hooded cowls and chunky vests! Don't forget the creative gals on your list! Condito is Europe's answer to the ruffle craze, but with an added twist; you don't even need needles to make up your scarves! Using just your fingers, a blunt tapestry needle, and some elastic thread, you'll be able to make a scarf in just one evening! We also love the brand new eyelash yarn called Pelo, a virgin merino wool, acrylic, and polyamide blend. I especially love the designs Lana Grossa has come up with using this fun yarn! Knit it up by itself for snuggly wraps and jackets, or try it as an accent!

Wool Watcher We'll be holding a Lana Grossa Wool Watcher day next Wednesday, December 7th! With a selection of these new Lana Grossa yarns, you'll be sure to find exactly what you want at a great price!

      Limited Edition Madelinetosh Yarn!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Limited Edition Madelinetosh? It's almost too good to be true - but, don't worry - we're not pulling your leg! Madelinetosh has sent us a very limited amount of Tosh Vintage Short Skeins. Priced a bit less than the original $19.20, these skeins are made up of the same deliciously soft 100% superwash merino wool (and still hand-dyed to 100% perfection). Why the price cut? They're just 10 yards short of the original 200 yards! Although these are limited edition, Tosh is sending us one more batch in a few weeks - we'll keep you posted, as always! :) We also have some great new Madelinetosh patterns - be sure to check them out!
