New Beginnings - February Lorna's Laces Limited Edition Color

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

The inspiration for this month’s Limited Edition color came from one of our Purchasing Team Beans, Amanda. Many of you might know Amanda, she’s actually worked here longer than all of us - taking breaks here and there to pursue her love of Equine Therapy. Last year was a big year of transitions for her, both good and bad, so she designed this color to represent all of the "New Beginnings" that have come her way. The bold transition from dark charcoal and greys to bright candy pinks and cranberry reds represents all the good things to come.

We love how this color also ties in perfectly with National Heart Month and the introduction of our latest project, Stitch Red (don't worry - you'll read more about Stitch Red below)! Starting the Stitch Red movement and focusing on Heart Disease awareness has encouraged all of us to start new beginnings for ourselves - to become more active and live healthier lifestyles. In fact, “New Beginnings” represents something even bigger than just the Jimmy Beans community, it is hope that all of you will also be inspired to join us in our desire to live heart-healthy lives. Spread the word and start your “New Beginning” today!

For more information, be sure to keep reading this newsletter and check out the Lorna’s Laces Stitch Red color, Bold Red .

      All About the NEW Stitch Red Movement!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Stitch Red! We are thrilled to announce the launch of “Stitch Red”, a collaborative effort that we’ve started to help bring awareness to heart disease, the number one killer of women in America. We’ve joined forces with a number of companies in the needlearts industry to start this campaign and literally stick it to heart disease. All of our collaborators are creating Stitch Red products that will be sold in yarn shops across the country and a percentage of the profits will benefit the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of The Heart Truth®, a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). It is so exciting for us to be able to give back in this way, as so many of us here at Jimmy Beans Wool have been personally affected by heart disease.

The upcoming book Knit Red is our contribution to the Stitch Red movement. We’ve gathered a wonderful collection of knitting designs by 30 amazing, top-notch designers (including two of our own little beans, Jeanne and Kristen) all in one book. To that we've added the designers’ personal stories about their connections to heart disease, their healthy lifestyle tips and heart-healthy recipes for a book like no other. Knit Red is available for pre-order now and will be published in June of this year. We can't wait for you all to see this project that we've been working so hard on for all these months! If you would like to learn more about Stitch Red, be sure to check out the Stitch Red website , a work in progress. To see a list of all of the designers featured in the Knit Red book, check out the Knit Red page .

Want to get involved? Be sure to read all about how you can participate on the Stitch Red site ! Also, keep up to date with the latest news on the Stitch Red blog . The more people we can get involved, the more awareness we will create and, hopefully, more and more people will start to make positive changes that will help to lower their risk of heart disease. Every little bit helps!

Also be sure to check out some of the new and exciting Stitch Red Products we currently have in stock. You can check them all out on the Stitch Red website, or see a small sampling below:

P.S. Interested in this movement? Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or stay tuned to our blog for the latest on the Stitch Red movement, including updates on the Knit Red book, new Stitch Red events, and so much more to come. For our locals,  we will be hosting our very first Stitch Red Knit Night on Tuesday, February 7th! Not a local? We hope you and your local yarn stores will join us and host Stitch Red Knit Nights where you live!

      NEW Yarn & Books from Classic Elite Yarns  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 

We are so excited to be expanding our line of Classic Elite Yarns! We’ve recently added the amazing super wash Liberty Wool and Liberty Print yarns as well as the super soft and bulky Toboggan . The 100% super wash Liberty wool comes in a full line of solids and self-striping options that are sure to inspire. It’s some of the softest super wash wool we’ve ever felt! The delicious and chunky Toboggan features a sumptuous blend of Alpaca and Merino Wool for a simply delicious combination of bulk and warmth. When the shipment arrived, Kristen immediately bought enough Liberty Print to make the Molly Scarf from the “Liberty Wool Accents” book. It is such a cute pattern!

We also  love the books that accompany these yarns. The Toboggan book , for example, features adorable bulky accessories and garments. Some of our favorites include the Flexible Flyer Cowl , Sleigh Ride Sweater , and Elf Hat . The Accents book features lovely designs that make great use of Liberty Wool and Liberty Print. We're especially fond of the Cable Flower Hat and Garter Stitch Wrap designs. The Liberty Wool book features garments like the Elizabeth Sweater which is designed by Cecily Glowik MacDonald , and the super fun Martha Scarf which features easy mitered squares, perfect for showing off the lovely colors of the Liberty Wool Print. Lastly, the Palette book features artistic accessories such as the Light and Shadow Scarf and the Gamut Glow Neckwarmer . With so many gorgeous designs and colors to choose from, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have these new yarns in stock!

While you're enjoying all of the latest from Classic Elite, don't forget to check out some of their old, tried and true favorites, including the Fresco, Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint and Vail. And have a peek at the latest Stitch Red color of Magnolia!
