      As Long As You Love Me - Lorna's Limited Edition Color  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
As Long As You Love Me LLE color

When several of the gals who work on the E-commerce Team suggested a Justin Bieber-inspired color for February, most of us rolled our eyes. What? Seriously?! I mean, the kid looks like he's about 13. But then we thought back to the prominent pop stars from our youth and remembered how similarly we felt about their music. Many of us remember being gaga (not Lady) about the boy bands of the 80s and 90s, and some of the Beans were even around for Elvis, so we figured Bieber might just be "it" for this generation of pop music lovers. With that, we gave Elyse, who is perhaps the biggest Bieber fan at Jimmy Beans, the task of creating this month's color. Needless to say, she was almost as excited about making this color mash-up as she would be sitting front row and center at a Bieber show... almost.

Around here the weekends are pretty Bieber-tastic as we stream our Bieber station on Pandora Radio almost non-stop while the weekend crew pulls and ships orders. Whether or not you are a Bieber Believer (aka "Bieliber") or you just happen to know one, this month's Lorna's Limited Edition color, As Long As You Love Me, is the perfect homage to Bieber and all of his pop predecessors. Not only that, but we think February is the perfect month to feature this jewel-toned color inspired by love!

Available in all our favorite Lorna's Laces yarns, As Long As You Love Me is great colorway for fun accessories, bright vests and tanks, cute shawls and so much more!

      Special Exclusive TML for Valentine's Day!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Tosh Merino Light Corazone
February is a natural time to be thinking about our hearts; not only is it the month of Valentine's Day, but it's also American Heart Month -an entire month dedicated to raising awareness about heart disease, a topic near and dear to our hearts and the Stitch Red campaign. In honor of both, we've teamed up with Madelinetosh to create a color meant to keep our hearts on our minds: Corazon (Spanish for "heart") is a limited edition, one-of-a-kind colorway featuring vibrant, beautiful reds that are sure to turn heads!
This color debuted a few weeks ago at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC, where it received many oohs and ahhs. Available while supplies last in Tosh Merino Light (we only have 250 skeins and once they're gone, they are gone!), Corazon is the perfect choice to make something extra-special for your Valentine or for yourself! Join us on February 1st for National Wear Red Day, as we release this one-of-a-kind gem and inspire women everywhere to care for their hearts.

      Spectacular Spring Yarns - New from Berroco!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
A new season means new yarns, and Berroco never fails to give us something new to get excited about! We're head over heels for their latest additions: lightweight and lovely cotton blends that promise to "spring" us right out of winter!

Karma had us talking from the get-go. A cotton tape yarn, at close range this yarn has a woven chain construction that gives it the feel and density of a well-worn t-shirt. While it may knit up on US 11 needles, Karma is light and airy - great for spring shawls and tanks. Maya is another new yarn we just can't keep our hands off of; this worsted weight yarn is a sumptuous blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca just begs to be knitted up into a light cardigan for layering - you can bet the Boxthorn Cardi from Berroco 331 will be our go-to chill-chaser this spring! And lovers of Berroco Weekend and Weekend Chunky will jump for joy at the arrival of Weekend DK, a lighter-weight version of this classic machine-washable acrylic and cotton blend. We're already trying out color combos for the Blackstrake pocketed pullover from Berroco 328 - Weekend Stripes!
Along with these automatic favorites, Berroco has also sent us a couple of eye-catching newbies sure to jazz up your spring wardrobe. Captiva Metallic is the sparkly cousin to the original Captiva, with a glittery thread woven in for a striking shimmer - use it as an accent or edging, or for an entire glitzy garment, like the Rover smock tank from Berroco 329. Or for a sophisticated but edgy look, knit up the Lukchun shawl in Fuji, a tweedy-looking silk and cotton blend in fabulous muted colors. Made up in two colors separated by a cable panel, Lukchun is the perfect accent piece to prove that colorblock style is back!

      Meet a Bean: Elyse!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Elyse And Justin
As we mentioned earlier, Elyse created this month's "Lamby" winning color, As Long as You Love Me, which was inspired by the Bieb-meister himself and is a BIG Bieber fan. Pictured left you can see her posing with his (very realistic) statue at the wax museum in LA. Elyse joined our e-commerce team in the fall of 2010 when she was just a senior in high school and quickly became one of the speediest and most accurate order pullers and shippers we have!

Elyse is working on a BA in Education at the University of Reno, Nevada, but we are pretty sure that if she could, she would major in Bieber-ology. Elyse is a true kid at heart naming anything Disney related and candy as two of her favorite things (after Justin Bieber of course). We are so lucky to have such a fun spirited sweetheart on our team!
