      Lorna's Laces Limited Edition May '14 - Fire & Blood... And a Game of Thrones MKAL!

Lorna's Laces Limited Edition - Fire and Blood

It's been almost a year since the "Red Wedding" shocked us all, and now Game of Thrones Season 4 is in full swing! We couldn't help but celebrate this staff-favorite (or guilty pleasure) with another Westeros-themed color... And this year it's "Fire and Blood", the words of house Targaryen! Created especially for you by Kristen, our KAL designer, this Lorna's color was intended to fit its namesake to a tee - and we think it's perfect! If you could have read our e-mails back and forth with Beth at Lorna's about this one you would have died laughing! The conversation went something like this:

Kristen: "It's pretty, but I think it needs to be a bit bloodier."
Beth: "Ok, you want bloody? I'll give you bloody!"

And bloody is what we got! Rich shades of deep red and eggplant purple mixed with fiery shades of orange and rust, this color couldn't be more fitting for the ruthless house of Targaryen.

Along with this special color, Kristen is hosting another Mystery Knit-A-Long to make a stunning lace shawl inspired by Daenerys Targaryen, using two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock. This MKAL will have a slightly different format from our past MKALs (it's going to be even better!), so be sure to check out all of the details in this week's post on the JBW Blog! The MKAL kicks off Sunday, May 4th.

"Fire and Blood" is now available in all of your favorite Lorna's Laces yarns, Bijou Basin Ranch's Bijou Bliss yarn, and gorgeous yarn bouquets and fabric bouquets as well!

Rauma Finullgarn Flower Pot

We've got several MORE new gift ideas for mom this Mother's Day! (Moms, don't forget to tell your friends and family to check these out!) First up, could these Rauma Flower Pots be any more adorable in the gorgeous hand-made wooden yarn bowls that you can use again and again!?!?
Next, we've taken luxury to the next level with our gorgeous Filatura di Crosa Superior and Nirvana Bouquets! With enough yarn to make a stylish boxy top, designed exclusively for us and available in four sizes, these bouquets are both stunning AND soft... Jimmy has been wearing hers nonstop!
For the Tosh fans out there, we've created new Madelinetosh Dandelion Bouquets featuring Tosh's brand new Dandelion yarn (think Tosh Merino Light with a smidge of linen!) Every bouquet contains three hanks of Dandelion in complementary colors that are sure to make Mom's day. Once Mom is done admiring her lovely bouquet she can use the yarn to make Ripple Effect, a beautiful 3-color shawl designed by Rachel of Unraveled Designs. And in case you missed them earlier, we also have our Cascade Spring Gift Baskets ready to go! This one includes enough Cascade Ultra Pima to make the Rose Trellis Lace Vest and is arranged in a cheerful tote, perfect for on-the-go gift giving!

Swans Island May Birthstone Bouquet

With all this talk about Mother's Day, the May birthdays may be feeling a bit left out - but take heart: We've crafted these birthstone bouquets especially for you! For the yarn-lover, we have birthstone bouquets using scrumptious Swans Island EcoWash DK. May's color is Emerald, so these small and large versions are perfect for anyone who is celebrating a birthday in May - or who just loves green! Each bouquet also includes a set of Birthstone stitch markers from Anna Bee, which are great for keeping your place in the Silver Birch Cowl, an exclusive cowl pattern designed by Swan's Island.

Fabric aficionados will love the May Fabric Bouquet! The sleek vase contains 8 Emerald-hued fat quarters from various Westminster Fabrics designers and is adorned by 2 yards of grosgrain ribbon, making it both beautiful and practical. Feeling the urge to use those fabrics immediately? Look no further than the project bag pattern designed by our very own Jeanne to use 2 fat quarters. Best of all, the pattern comes free with the bouquet, so you can gaze at the beauty of your bouquet or put it to use. The choice is yours!
