      JBW Exclusive: Tosh LE Color - Thrift Shop Dress Shirt!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Madelinetosh January 2014 Limited Edition - Thrift Shop Dress Shirt


We really wanted to start 2014 off with a bang, and we figured what better way to do that than with Madelinetosh?!? So we asked Amy at Madelintosh if they could create a series of Limited Edition colors only available from us here at Jimmy Beans, available in all of their most popular bases, and they graciously said yes! Every other month throughout the year, beginning in January, we'll be releasing these special colors in all of the fabulous Madelinetosh yarn bases. We are calling it our "Tailor-Made Collection" because it's made especially for us, and all of you! It probably goes without saying, but we are ridiculously elated to share these amazing colors with you!

This month, Tosh has created this gorgeous colorway that we've lovingly named "Thrift Shop Dress Shirt." The pale tones of beiges and grey paired with blue and deep green reminded us of the vintage dress shirts often seen worn by hipsters or those bold enough to wear these colors all at once. We also love us some Macklemore (the rapper behind chart-topper, "Thrift Shop"), so it just seemed to fit! Jimmy really liked the contrast of the paler tones mixed with slightly darker ones that make this color truly unique, and perfect for your next project or to add to your stash. The best part is, it's Limited Edition Tosh! What more could you ask for?

Thrift Shop Dress Shirt is available in a or small or large bouquet, and open stock in all of your favorite Madelinetosh yarn weights, including: Madelinetosh's newest yarn, A.S.A.P., Pashmina, Pashmina Worsted, Tosh DK, Tosh Merino DK, Tosh Merino, Prairie, Tosh Chunky, Tosh Sock, Tosh Sport, Tosh Vintage and of course, the ever popular Tosh Merino Light!

Necessary Cowl - Noro Shiraito & Debbie Bliss Angel - Desert
$49.99
Laura has been knitting up a storm lately and the Necessary Cowl designed by our friend Shelli, owner of Knitterly in Petaluma, CA is her item of choice! She's made three or so of these cozy cowls in the last month, and is showing no signs of stopping! She says it's really a great pattern for someone who needs some mindless knitting or as a very basic pattern for a beginning knitter. Plus, the resulting cowl is just gorgeous! We've created a few special new kits using Malabrigo Dos or Noro Shirato paired with Debbie Bliss Angel that include all the yarn you need, and the pattern. Check 'em out!

Danube Aran - 603 Provence
Danube Aran - 603 Provence
$8.40
Inspired by the European river for which it is named, Danube is made from slow-striping fibers that flow with gorgeous color changes. Silk-like flecks within the yarn give it subtle texture for an appealing handspun look. Available in three different weights, DK, Aran, and Bulky, this yarn is versatile, too! To knit the Knitting Pure & Simple Bulky Hat and Mitts set, you just need 2-3 balls of Bulky. The Sylkie Cowl by Shetland Trader just takes 3 balls of Aran while 2 balls of the DK makes Ann Norling's Ann Norling's Cowl on the Diagonal! Any way you use the Danube, we are sure you'll love its tweedy and soft look!
Cascade Forest Hills - 15 Hyacinth Violet
Cascade Forest Hills - 15 Hyacinth Violet
$19.95
Forest Hills from Cascade is a squishy soft blend of silk and merino wool finely spun into a 2-ply lace weight / light fingering weight yarn. Although we would expect nothing less from Cascade, this yarn is available in a gorgeous range of colors leaving something for everyone. With 785 yards per ball to work with, Forest Hills is perfect for an heirloom shawl like the Icarus Shawl by Miriam Felton, or Churchmouse's Fir Cone Lace Shawl and Scarf.
HiKoo Rylie - 086 Periwinkle
HiKoo Rylie - 086 Periwinkle
$25.95
Rylie from HiKoo is a stunning blend of three luxurious fibers - baby alpaca, mulberry silk, and linen! These fibers unite to create a down-to-earth yarn laden with rustic texture, subtle sheen, and a soft halo that is nothing short of divine. It creates a fabric that is soft, drapey, and above all, comfortable. Try it out on Sunday Knits' gorgeous Claire de Lune Cardigan or Hill Country Weavers' Bouteloua Capelet and Mitts!
Miriam Felton Patterns - Lauren Bacall Gloves
Miriam Felton Patterns - Lauren Bacall Gloves
$6.50
We met Miriam at TNNA last January, and not only is she just as sweet as can be, but she is über-talented too! This Utah-based designer creates intuitive garments and accessories that are just stunning and ultra-wearable. Some of our favorites include the Bramble shawl that can be knit with two skeins of Classic Elite Alpaca Sox Kettle Dyed, the Vinculum Cardigan, which uses Swans Island Natural Colors Worsted, and the Lauren Bacall Gloves, which would be scrumptious knit in Juniper Moon's Tenzing yarn. Any way you knit Miriam's patterns, we think you will love their unique look and fun construction!

      Project bags to go with your Lorna's Laces Downton Abbey yarn (and how to make them yourself, too!)  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
To go along with the new Downton Abby Lorna's Laces Limited Edition color, "Bated Breath," we decided to have some limited edition project bags sewn up (by Jimmy's neighbor Alise!) to coordinate with the colors in the yarn! These vintage inspired prints come from Denyse Schmidt's latest collection, Florence. We've selected four prints that we feel complement the "Bated Breath" color well and are perfect for carrying around your KAL project!
Would you rather save a few bucks and make your own project bag? Well, you can get 3 bags out of 1 yard of fabric - enough for you and two friends! Each bag also needs 2 yards of ribbon for the ties. For instructions on how to make your own project bag, check out Kristen's Sewn Project Bag Tutorial on our Free Patterns page!

      Five Reasons Why We Love Romi Hill!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Romi Hill
Every so often, we make friends with people in the knitting industry who really knock our socks off, and Rosemary "Romi" Hill is one of those people. A couple of years ago she relocated with her family from the Bay Area to Gardnerville, NV, just a few miles south of Reno - making her pretty much a local. Lucky us! Recently, Laura had lunch with Romi and was reminded of what a true gem she is, which is why we wanted to share with you the 5 big reasons we love Romi and her designs!


1) She's awesome to work with! Last year we collaborated with her on her 7 Small Shawls 2012-13 series - Home is Where the Heart Is - a stunning group of designs inspired by Northern Nevada. It was such fun to be a part of all of the excitement!
2) We just love all of her designs (especially the two we just added to our collection, Kleio and Sakaki!) Many of her shawls incorporate beads - we love that, too!
3) She graciously agreed to be a part of our Stitch Mountain book. Her design for Olympic athlete (and fellow knitter) Hannah Kearney, the Ruffle Scarf, is one of the most popular from the book, and just one look at its effortless design will tell you why.

4) Her photography is AMAZING! Check out how gorgeous she made our little Debbie Bliss Snowman look... All of her designs are photographed this beautifully. We love the eye-candy!
5) She teaches classes, too! In fact, she is teaching at a retreat with Hill Country Weavers in Austin, TX in February, and Laura is thinking about going. Are any of you signed up? It sounds amazing!

In any case, we love Romi and her patterns and we hope you do, too! Never tried knitting any of her designs? Check out her shawls from Home is Where the Heart Is or her Designs by Romi line. Each of them is awesome and unique in its own way, just like the designer herself!
