      New (To Us) Yarns from Skacel!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Each season, Skacel releases an awesome Magalog (magazine/catalog) that highlights their newest yarns and new free patterns. We love the gorgeous layout and photography of these and so we've asked Skacel to send us a few thousand of them to send out with orders. We think you are going to love them, too!

In the Spring/Summer 2014 issue, tons of new yarns (and free patterns!) are featured, and we have them all here in stock! Some of our favorite designs from the Magalog include the Evolution Shawl knit in Zitron Unisono Solid, the Kimono Lace Blocks Scarf, knit in Zitron Kimono, and the Old Denim Blanket and the Crocheted Hexagon Apron, both done in Zitron Patina and Patina Multis. We also love the use of old button-down shirts as pillow backs, sewn to knitted or felted panels to create awesome and unique throw pillow covers. So clever!

Skacel distributes a variety of yarn brands including HiKoo, Schulana, Zitron, and Schoppel Wolle. The latest from HiKoo includes the stunning alpaca, silk, and linen Rylie, which is perhaps Leanne's new favorite yarn! Linen blends are huge for spring, and the Rylie fits the bill perfectly! Another fresh offering is the Zitron Kimono, a sport weight blend of merino wool and mulberry silk that creates a yarn with both drape and texture. There are just so many awesome new yarns, we can't really describe them all so we'll just show you:

Cast Away - Wild Flower
Cast Away - Wild Flower
$35.00
Cast Away from Knit Collage is a thick-and-thin handspun yarn that uses multiple colors in the roving to create a multi-dimensional skein. Kristen is a huge fan of this yarn and has already knit two projects with it. Plus, it's super bulky, so it knits up really fast on huge needles. Check out the awesome Hoodie Scarf pattern by Knit Collage that uses two skeins of Cast Away and one skein of their Sister yarn, which we also now carry! There is nothing more fun and whimsical than the beautiful handspun delights from Knit Collage!

Other standouts include the lovely striped Velocity Shawl, which uses two colors of Bijou Basin Ranch Seraphim, and the colorful Shuriken Shawl in Noro Silk Garden that is shown on the cover. There is something for everyone to love in this issue of Interweave Crochet!

Cascade Elysian is the perfect blend of merino wool and acrylic and comes in tons of great colors making it wonderful for baby and kids' items, blankets, home accessories and more! Super soft and squishy fibers mean that the wearer will love the way this yarn feels next to skin. Each ball has 219 yards and works up at a worsted weight gauge on size US 7 needles.

Koigu's famous colors are now available in a lace-weight yarn, causing lace knitters around the globe to squeal with excitement! The brand new Lace Merino is the same high quality merino wool you've come to expect from Koigu, but it knits up at a slightly smaller gauge than their famous KPPPM. Each 50g skein has 292 yds of scrumptious color to work with - you are sure to love the result! Use just 2 skeins for Romi Hill's Blackjack Shawl or the Crashing Waves shawlette by Grace Akhrem.

Terry's Simple Summer Tweed Pullover
Terry's Simple Summer Tweed Pullover

Terry decided to knit this sweater after having helped several of our customers in the retail store with questions on the pattern. She really liked the simple design and decided she must have one for herself. She chose a pretty rust color of Rowan Summer Tweed, downloaded the free pattern by Heidi Kirrmaier from Ravelry, and got to work! We love how this turned out and it appears to be the perfect fit! If you are knitting the Simple Summer Tweed Top Down V-Neck and you get stuck, give Terry a call - she's now an expert!

Marilyn's Sprig Pullover
Marilyn's Sprig Pullover

Marilyn saw the pre-release of the Sprig pullover from Botanical Knits 2 by Alana Dakos and just fell in love! She also really wanted to try knitting with the gorgeous Zealana Rimu DK made of super soft possum, so she cast on right away. She loves how this sweater turned out and we do, too! The possum is as soft as cashmere and has an amazing halo, not to mention the color she chose is just stunning. The Sprig pattern can be purchased as a PDF for download on Ravelry, and if you buy the pattern now, the cost of it can be applied to a later purchase of the whole Botanical Knits 2 Collection when it comes out this spring!

Sandy's Houndstooth Hat
Sandy's Houndstooth Hat

Sandy knit this adorable houndstooth hat from the Winter '13/'14 issue of Knit Simple Magazine. She made it as a Christmas gift for her granddaughter and it turned out simply adorable! Sandy knit the hat in the exact yarn the pattern called for, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, in the same colors. She already had it in her stash!

Rachel's Moebius Braid Cowl
Rachel's Moebius Braid Cowl

Rachel made this gorgeous cowl to submit to Knitty and it was accepted (of course it was, because it's awesome!). Here is what Rachel has to say about her design: 'I wanted to create a cabled version of my new favorite winter accessory, the cowl. Unfortunately traditional cables are not reversible and have an unsightly wrong side, which is a problem for a piece like this since both sides are often visible. However, with the brilliant invention of reversible cables, that is no longer a problem! Reversible cables are deceptively simple, using ribbing to create a fabric that looks the same on both sides.' The Moebius Braid Cowl pattern was released last month and is now available for free on Knitty.com!

Monika's Knit Collage Hoodie Cowl
Monika's Knit Collage Hoodie Cowl

Monika jumped at the opportunity to knit this as a shop sample because she just LOVES all things Knit Collage. This project, the Hoodie Cowl (which can be purchased as a PDF on Ravelry or directly from Knit Collage) uses Gypsy Garden and Sister to create tons of fun texture and color. The result is this super warm and funky hooded cowl! Monika wanted her cowl to be a bit deeper, so she made it extra wide by adding an additional repeat of the Sister at the back part of the hood, which is fine because there is enough extra yarn to do so.

Jenny's Erika Knight Mitts
Jenny's Erika Knight Mitts

Jenny made these cute Cabled Mitts from Erika Knight using Erika Knight's Maxi Wool. She said this project went super-fast, because the mitts are knit on US size 17 needles and can easily be whipped up in an evening. Perfect for a last-minute gift! The project just took 1 skein of yarn. She is happy with how these mitts turned out - and she finished just in time for the super cold weather we've be having! How convenient!
