      November Limited Edition: Breaking Dawn  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Shepherd Sock Shepherd Worsted Shepherd Sport Helen's Lace
Lion and Lamb Baby Me Boo Honor Solemate

Breaking Dawn - November Limited Edition Color

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

Ah, November - the month of family, chilly weather, and a whole lot of turkey. It's also the season of Hollywood movies vamping up (no pun intended!) and our resident Twilight fans - Erika, Monika, Ailene, and Leanne - have been so excited for the third movie that we just had to dedicate this month's LLE color, Breaking Dawn, to them and their dedicated fandom!

This gothic-inspired colorway embodies the ambience of the final chapter with its intense colors: deep blood red, dusky purple, and a splash of chocolate brown. And, hey, even if you're sick of hearing about the Bella and Edward saga, you won't be able to resist the magnetizing allure of this blend. We're calling it the darker version of Peppermint Mocha, without the pinks. Mmmm...

      Tahki Stacy Charles Fall/Winter  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Brand new yarns from Tahki Stacy Charles! We just received brand new colors of our go-to yarn, Zara, from Tahki Stacy Charles' brand Filatura di Crosa! This incredibly soft DK weight yarn is made of 100% extrafine merino wool and is 100% machine washable. Plus, it boasts fantastic stitch definition, great yardage (137 yards per ball!), and it does not pill! We do recommend that if you would like to throw your Zara knits into the wash, be sure to wet-block your swatch!

P.S. Check out our blog this Friday - we're having another spectacular give-away on our blog where you can win 5 balls of Zara! Big Montana is the epitome of super-quick, super-bulky yarn. It's available in five classic neutral colorways and it calls for a US 17 needle! This 100% wool yarn is perfect for chunky accessories you can use as deadline gifts and tempting for those cozy jackets and cardigans as a nice wintertime treat for yourself! For those in warmer climates, be sure to check out the fingering weight version of Cotton Classic! Cotton Classic Lite is the same super soft 100% Mercerized Cotton but with added yardage! It's breathable enough for tanks and tees but sturdy enough to use for market bags and potholders...is there anything this yarn can't do?! Of course with all of the new yarns floating about, brand new pattern books from Tahki were not too far behind. Be sure to check out Tahki Stacy Charles' website to peek into all of their pattern books!

Wool Watcher Be on the lookout later this week for chances to score both Cotton Classic Lite yarn and copies of the new Potpouri book! We'll be posting both of these items on Friday, November 4th at a low price!

Interweave Press Knit.Wear Books - Premiere 2011

Knit Wear, a brand new knitting publication from Interweave Press, has certainly caught our eye with the premier issue! Geared towards "simple handknits for the thoughtful knitter", this issue is brimming with extremely wearable pieces like the Shaped Braided Cable Caplet on the cover (love!), the Basket Yolk Pullover, and the Pastaza Tucked Skirt. The magazine also includes plenty of helpful instructions and detailed pictures of stitches and techniques. All in all, we're excited as can be to see what else Knit.Wear has in store for us!

Following the raving success of Laura Nelkin's Butin Collars, the Butin Earrings will be sure to add the same kind of flair to your wardrobe! These easy-to-make earrings use just four basic knitted stitches and are a great gift that can be knit in under an hour. Perfect for use as stocking stuffers or to give to all of your knitter friends this holiday season! These kits are available in eight different colorways and the pattern can even be knit again and again to use up some of those random scraps of sock yarn you might have lying around!
della Q Edict Bags Accessories - Paws Off - Brown
della Q Edict Bags - Paws Off
$12.00
Della Q's adorable "Edict" project bags allow you to sort your knitting projects by type!

Made of 100% super soft cotton and measuring 11" x 12", these bags will be able to fit most of your small to medium sized projects with ease. Currently available in four colors, you could easily grab a few of each type to keep your projects separated and organized.
Vogue Knit Simple Books - 2011 Holiday
Knit Simple - 2011 Holiday
$6.99
I absolutely love the holiday issues of Knit Simple magazine since they never fail to deliver gorgeous yet easy holiday knits for the entire family. This year's 2011 Holiday issue is no exception! With shimmery wraps and scarves, festive holiday decorations, and sweaters for every body type, there's something that will appeal to every knitter out there. There's even a "welcome" boy's and girl's Layette Set - so adorable! If you're in need of one-stop shopping for holiday gift knitting, check out our kit section to get all the supplies you need, with one swift click of a button!

      Classic Elite MountainTop Collection and More!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Fall and winter are all about layering and Classic Elite's MountainTop collection helps us do just that! This new collection consists of three super soft and cozy naturally dyed yarns, each composed of different fibers and weights.

The worsted weight Vista, for starters, is an exceptionally warm blend of 50% Wool and 50% Superfine Alpaca. It's ideal for sweaters and vests but also makes for lovely shawls like the Highland Fling Shawl! Crestone, also an ultra-warm worsted weight yarn, is 100% wool with two different shades of color that are plied together to create added depth and texture. This yarn looks great when knit up into gorgeous, rustic sweaters and hats like the Alpine Meadow Pullover and the Dale Tam!

A stunning blend of 70% Baby Alpaca and 30% Bamboo Viscose, the fingering-weight Vail creates stunningly soft and silky smooth garments with lovely drape - perfect for those allergic to wool! Create lovely shawls or lightweight scarves with this perfect yarn!

Aside from Classic Elite's Mountaintop Collection, we have also added the variegated counterpart to one of our favorite lace yarns, Silky Alpaca Lace! Available in seven stunning blends, Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint is just as scrumptious as the original with its 70% alpaca, 30% silk blend, and 440 generous yards! Use it for this simple Chevron Scarf or try it out on the Open Front Cardi! Most of the posted kits came from all of the brand new pattern books from Classic Elite - be sure to check them all out!

Wool Watcher You'll be able to try out some of these brand new yarns by Classic Elite later this week on the Wool Watcher page! On Thursday November 3rd, we'll be posting skeins of both Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint and Mountaintop Crestone for all your fiber needs! :)

      Beans for Brains  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Donations have officially started to roll in for our 2012 Beans for Brains Scholarship fund!! We are so excited to be announcing the 2012 Beans for Brains Scholarship Awards and, in case you haven't heard, we've got an exciting plan to share with you for the 2012 awards. We hope you'll join the cause!

This year, we have ten major sponsors that will be matching public donations to the Beans for Brains scholarship fund. For the month of November, Jimmy Beans Wool will be accepting donations online and in our retail store with the targeted goal of raising $10,000 from all of YOU! Each of our sponsors will match the amount raised up to $1,000 for a grand total of $20,000 combined. From November 1st through November 30th, please visit our Beans for Brains Scholarship page and donate (and be sure to send your family and friends, too!). If every one of our customers gave $1, we'd be well over our goal in no time!!

In January, we will announce the total amount raised and share a timeline for when we will start accepting applications for the 2012-2013 school year!
