      LLE Color - Bon Temps Rouler  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Bon Temps Rouler Flower Bouquet


This March we are celebrating Mardi Gras with "Bon Temps Rouler", a shortened version of the phrase "laissez les bon temps rouler" which means "let the good times roll" in French. Mardi Gras is a time for parties, but also for celebrating with friends and family before the start of Lent. Both Olivia and Leanne (huge Francophiles at heart) were thrilled to name this color for such an iconic holiday that traces its origins back to France. We've created this fun and cheery color with yellows and purples to represent this celebration as well as the spring equinox, which also happens in March! Celebrate all of these fun things with us this month and let the good times roll!
To coordinate with your Bon Temps Rouler, we have some lovely yarn and fabric bouquets as well as coordinating Hand-Made Project Bags in fun prints from Jenean Morrison. Be sure to check them out as well!
"Bon Temps Rouler" is available in all of your favorite Lorna's Laces bases including: Lorna's newest yarn, Masham Worsted, Haymarket, Shepherd Sock, Shepherd Worsted, Shepherd Sport, Helen's Lace, Lion & Lamb, Honor, Solemate, Sportmate, and Bijou Basin Ranch's Bijou Bliss!

Classic Elite Cerro - 7188 Coral

Classic Elite's new Cerro yarn is the quintessential yarn for spring and summer! This pima cotton and alpaca blend is super soft and drapey, making it great for tees, tanks, and warm weather accessories.

Modicum Mitts Pattern - available on Ravelry
We just returned from Stitches West on Sunday night, exhausted but excited from all of the awesome folks we met there. We love going to shows and meeting all of you in person - it is so much fun to put faces to all of the names of the people we e-mail, talk to on the phone, and fill orders for daily! In case you missed Stitches West, we wanted to share with you some of our top sellers from the show, starting with the Tosh Tea Cakes! These were highly popular, perhaps because Rachel had finished up her super cute design for the amazing Modicum Mitts just in time to bring to the show!
The Tosh Tea Cakes will now include this pattern with every shipment, and if you've already purchased a set, let us know and we'll e-mail you the pattern PDF! (The Modicum Mitts pattern is also available for sale on Ravelry if you love the design, but would rather use up scraps of sock yarn from your stash.)


Other best sellers from Stitches include our JBW logo Klean Kanteens, our Tailormade Tosh color Thrift Shop Dress Shirt, our exclusive Cascade Baby Alpaca Hand-dyed color Cascade Crush, the Lorna's Laces Limited Edition Sochi 2014 color, and the Schacht Zoom Looms that Laura was working on the entire show... She's obsessed!
