      April Lorna's Limited Edition Color - A Year of Firsts  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
A Year of Firsts
This past year has been a busy year for many of us Beans; some of us got married, some added to our families with new babies, some graduated college or moved into new homes. From a business standpoint, Jimmy Beans Wool experienced plenty of changes, too: we began carrying fabric, and Laura published her first and second books! It was a good year, and one we're likely to remember because of the many fabulous first-time experiences we had. We created this month's Lorna's Limited Edition Color, A Year of Firsts, with those experiences in mind.

Bethany came up with the fun, bright color combination, a mix of blues, greens, and yellows inspired by one of her daughter Penne's favorite toys. The cheerful hues are perfect for spring - they remind us of budding trees and blooming daffodils. As a new mom to adorable Penne, Bethany has undergone a lot of firsts this year, including teething, crawling, and now walking (not Bethany - the baby)! You can read more about Penne and our other Bean Sprouts (tee hee!) below - we're thrilled to have new members of the Jimmy Beans family, and we're sure they'll keep us busy with all the firsts yet to come!

A Year Of Firsts is available in all your favorite Lorna's yarns including: Lorna's newest yarn, Haymarket, Shepherd Sock, Shepherd Worsted, Shepherd Sport, Helen's Lace, Lion & Lamb, Honor, Solemate, and Sportmate!

      A Jimmy Beans Exclusive: Malabrigo Dos!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Once you see how amazing it is, the new Malabrigo Dos is sure to become your numero uno! A JBW Exclusive, this yarn is only available in limited quantities, and once it is gone, it's gone. The gorgeous DK weight is dyed with plant-based, all-natural dyes and is free of chemical agents - making it super eco-friendly. The color palette of this line is muted and lovely, which is perfect for spring and warmer weather items. Each 100% baby merino skein boasts a generous 150 yards, suitable for a wide range of projects like hats, cowls, scarves, sweaters, gloves - you name it!
If you need a little pattern inspiration to go along with this fabulous new yarn, we've selected some of our favorites as staff recommendations! First we have the Knitting Pure and Simple Top Down Trapeze Pullover. Kristen has wanted to knit this flowing sweater since it first came out a couple of months ago, and this yarn might be the perfect fit! For a smaller garment, try Grace Akhrem's Button Lace Cowl. Jeanne says it's a great lightweight spring accessory! Shevawn really loves the Indigirl Cloud Chaser Vest with its lovely cables that are shown off nicely with this yarn. Lastly, Sandy is a big fan of Ysolda Teague's Marin Shawlette which is wonderfully suited for beautiful hand dyed yarns. Be sure to grab enough Malabrigo Dos for whatever projects you desire, because once it's gone, it is gone forever!

Debbie Bliss Magazine
Debbie Bliss Magazine
$7.99
The Roaring Twenties are the theme of the season with the return of The Great Gatsby to the silver screen. Which is why the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Debbie Bliss Magazine makes us want to do the Charleston! With beautiful beaded garments and modern takes on 1920s shapes, this issue is certainly inspired. Also on display are beautiful and flowing designs for summer, fresh pin-up sweaters inspired by the 1950s, and some adorable children's designs (baby lederhosen anyone?) We've taken the liberty of making kits from several of our favorites: the stunning Lace Skirt, airy Party Angel Shrug, easy breezy Cap Sleeved Top, and the sultry Bardot Tank.
Manos Fino - Silhouette
Manos Fino - Silhouette
$28.40
Manos takes their silk and merino blends to a whole new level of amazingness with their latest yarn, Fino. The generous yardage (490 yards!) is enough for a one-skein shawl or scarf project, and feels just amazing to the touch. Along with the Fino, Manos is thrilled to introduce a new kettle dye process that allows for complex yet subtle tonal colors, all of which are absolutely to die for! We are sure you'll be itching to cast on the second your fingers make contact with this scrumptious new yarn!
Soak Wash - Lacey
Soak Wash - Lacey
$10.00
We are so excited to be carrying the new 3oz bottles of Soak Wash and Handmaid lotions! First of all, we love all of the soak scents and the fact that Soak Wash is a no-rinse wash, making it simpler than ever to block our hand-knit garments. Not only that, but the coordinating Handmaiden lotions render your hands silky smooth! Did you know you can also use your Soak Wash for washing delicate garments in your hotel sink? Yep, we've tried it ourselves and love how convenient Soak Wash is for knitters on the go!
Universal Yarns Bamboo Pop - Golden Seas
Universal Yarns Bamboo Pop - Golden Seas
$7.50
A lightweight yet durable blend of bamboo and cotton, Universal Yarns' Bamboo Pop is a versatile yarn for the warmer months of the year. Easy to care for (it's machine-washable!) and available in plenty of solid and print color ways, Bamboo Pop can be used for everything from baby accessories and apparel to grown-up cardis, lacey shawls or silky soft wraps! We like it for Knitting Pure and Simple's Top Down V-Neck Pullover and the Very Cherry Dress by Never Not Knitting.

      Kit of the Month: Berroco Linsey Tolland Cardigan  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
The April Kit of the Month was chosen with the changing of the seasons in mind. Spring brings warmer but temperamental weather, making layers the most important dress code. The Tolland Cardigan kit uses Berroco Linsey, a soft blend of linen and cotton that is just the thing for layering over tanks in warmer months, and even over longer sleeves in the spring and fall. This adorable cardigan features a simple construction with short raglan sleeves, a bit of eyelet detailing, and a single button closure at the top. The fit is swingy but not oversized, making it flattering on multiple body types. It's pairs really well with skirts and tanks, sun dresses, or just about anything that needs a little extra knit-style pizzazz!
Tolland Cardigan
Choose from the lovely range of Linsey colors-a selection of marled solids or muted self-striping color combos, or pick your favorite two! At 25% off, you can never have too many wardrobe basics like the Tolland Cardigan!

      Stay Fashion-forward with New Yarns from Trendsetter!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Exciting news! We've just gotten in some new yarns from Trendsetter that are sure to jazz up your spring wardrobe. Since it's Trendsetter, you know they are one-of-a-kind creations - you won't find anything else like them out there! Take Incanto, for example, a cotton and acrylic blend with a tubular chainette construction - plied with a sparkly strand of a contrasting color. This fascinating worsted weight yarn is great for summery sweaters with a hint of glitter! We like it in the Diagonal Boxed Lace Pullover - the cute Peter-Pan collar and elbow-length sleeves are wonderful for dressing up or down. Our next new favorite is Orchidea, another cotton blend chainette construction yarn in beautiful variegated colors with an intriguing twist: shiny sections of yarn are spun right in, resulting in periodic bursts of shimmer! We love the effect it gives the Slip Ribbed Raglan Pullover; combined with the slipped stitches in the pattern, the yarn gives this simple scoop-neck sweater a mosaic-like look, just like in a beautiful painting!
Twiggy is another positively unique yarn we just received. It's a lightweight linen blend with fluttery eyelashes that add interesting texture to your finished garment. Anything knit out of this intriguing yarn is sure to elicit comments! Try making the Cabled Pullover in one of the vibrant colors, like Purple Passion, and wearing it over a contrasting tank for an extra pop of color. Finally, Stella is a glittery, beaded novelty yarn designed to add a bit of bling to your garments and accessories. With four neutral colors to choose from, you can match any project - add sparkly edgings, twinkling trims, and fancy fringe to handbags, scarves, gloves, or the neck and wrists of a sweater!

      Meet a Bean...Sprout (or three)!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
As we mentioned above, this past year has been full of firsts for many of us at Jimmy Beans. For three of our team members, that meant bringing their first babies into the world, and all of the first-time experiences that go along with it. Bethany coined the term Bean Sprouts to refer to the littlest members of our team, and they certainly are sprouting up right before our eyes!
Penne
Bethany's little Sprout, Penne, is not so little these days...she's walking all over the place and getting ready to celebrate her first birthday! She's already cut her first teeth, said her first word ("dentle" - babyspeak for "gentle", which is how she pets the family dog), and figured out how to use her new Penne-sized folding chair to climb up on the couch and get into mischief. She doesn't have a favorite food because she likes almost everything, but her parents recently discovered her first food dislike: green beans.
Brandon, Kathy's adorable Sprout, just turned 9 months old and has already cut his first two teeth as well! He's bypassed crawling in favor of scooting across the floor in a motion that his parents liken to "The Worm" - hey, whatever works, right? He hasn't tried too many solid foods yet, but his favorites are butternut squash and peas (healthy boy!). The family dog, Tater, is helping him learn to talk...or sing: Brandon likes to holler along as Tater howls!
Brandon
Greyson
Our newest Sprout is little Greyson, Nicole's 11-week old son. Although he's brand-new, he's already racked up a few adorable firsts: his first smile (heart-melting!), first road trip, and first time sleeping through the night! He's got another important first planned for later this year: his very first of many trips to Disneyland! Monika's already crocheted him his own set of Mickey ears and pants to make sure he'll fit right in!
