      November Lorna's Limited Edition Color - Incredible!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Leanne Incredible!


Do you ever wish you had superpowers? We'll admit, we think about it from time to time... we're fast, but just imagine how fast we could ship your yarn if we could move at light speed! And of course, there's that whole flying thing, too. Always our partner in crime (or maybe fighting crime, this time!), Lorna's came up with an exciting limited edition color for November: Incredible! This bright and fun mix of red, yellow, and black just screams, "Bam! Kapow! Take that, evil masterminds of the world!" Okay, maybe we're getting carried away, but it does remind us of the superhero family in Pixar's The Incredibles! And since we just heard they're working on a sequel, we thought it the perfect time to get started on some superhero-inspired knitting.
November 2014 LLE Color - Incredible
Do you have a kid on your list (or "big kid" - ahem, we're looking at you, grown-ups who stand in line at midnight for the release of each new X-men movie) whose Christmas stocking is just waiting for a warm winter accessory to enhance their superhero abilities in the cold weather? Simply grab your favorite weight of Incredible - Shepherd Sock, Solemate, Shepherd Sport, Sportmate, or Shepherd Worsted - and knit up the Lorna's Basic Sock; the pattern has instructions for all three weights! Of course, we have it in the other Lorna's bases as well - which one makes you feel like a superhero?

This fun striped shawl uses the soft alpaca held double to create a warm and snuggly shoulder-warmer that will brighten any dreary winter day. Want to step the luxury level up a notch? This style of gift box is also available in an exquisite Alpaca Silk version as well!

If the knitter on your list is a collegiate sports fan, we've got the perfect idea for them:

Kollage Stitch Red Circs and DPNs - 50% off!
You know how much we love our square needles - I don't think there's a Bean working here who hasn't given this ergonomic, hand-pleasing design a try! Many even swear square needles make their knitting faster, too! Now you can relieve hand stress and knit for a cause with the Kollage Stitch Red Circulars and Double Pointed Needles. The Kollage square needles are very lightweight and super-pointy, and the cords on the circulars are extra flexible so they'll never kink or get in your way. And best of all, both JBW and Kollage donate a portion of the proceeds from these needles to The Heart Truth© to help educate about and prevent heart disease!
Koigu Grab Bags - 25% off!
All of you seem to love the grab bags we offer - with great yarn at amazing prices, who wouldn't? We've got one of your favorites on the menu this time: Koigu! Each Koigu Grab Bag includes 3 skeins of KPPPM, KPM, or a color-coordinated mixture of both. These skeins are onesies, meaning they didn't quite match the rest of the dye lot, but we think that makes them even more beautiful! Pick one up to fatten your stash, for a Churchmouse Linen Stitch Scarf, to work on your hexipuffs for The Beekeeper's Quilt, or just to enjoy looking at those gorgeous colors!
