      November's Tasty Tosh Color: Garlic and Onions!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Tosh LE November 2015 - Garlic and Onions

Ask any chef what staples they always keep in their kitchen, and chances are garlic and onions are two of them. These two potent ingredients add a distinct flavor to just about any dish, which is why we chose them to inspire our November Tasty Tosh color!

Many of our favorite holiday dishes (Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onion Jam with brie cheese and crackers anyone?) use these two ingredients, so it just seemed fitting as a color inspiration.

Deep purples from red onions with undertones of golden tan and white, this tonal color is truly stunning to knit or crochet.
Hunter Creek Cowl pattern
And just in time for snow to start flying, we've got a pretty lacy cowl for you to knit up!

Kristen's Hunter Creek Cowl is a perfect last-minute holiday gift that can be made in a weekend or two: using just one skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina, this lightweight piece can be worn single or doubled or knit a little shorter for more of a neck gaiter look. The lace pattern is simple yet elegant, perfect for showing off this stunning hand-dyed yarn!
A download code to get this pattern for free comes with the purchase of Tosh Pashmina in the Garlic and Onions color, or it can be purchased for just $1 in Marinade Designs' Ravelry shop until Mid-December!

And because no November would be complete without some pumpkin spice, check out the special Pumpkin Pie Soap that Black Rock Mud created just for us - complete with a little 'whipped cream' on top! Yum!

Garlic and Onions is available in Pashmina, Tosh DK, Tosh Merino Light, Tosh Sock, Tosh Vintage, and Twist Light.

November Beanie Bag contents

Word is out and our Beanie Bags are taking off! Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far, and for everyone who has given us the valuable feedback we love to get so we can make these even better!
November's bag featured a selection of our favorite yarns from none other than Shibui! Known for their luxurious fibers, Shibui yarns are meant to be mixed and matched, creating unique textures and fabrics.

The Shibui bag included 20 yard mini-balls of four different Shibui yarns that are all color-coordinated, to mix and match and discover your favorite combination (ours was Maai + Pebble)!
Knit and Crochet Headband pattern
A link to a knit and crocheted headband pattern and a sample of Soak wool wash was also included in each bag.

Not bad for $10 including shipping, eh? ($15 for International subscriptions)

Like what you see and want to take part in our Beanie Bag Subscriptions? Then check out all the options on our Beanie Bag Subscription Page: Beanie Bags are the gift that keeps on giving!

Give a subscription for 3, 6, or 12 months with our Beanie Bag Gift Subscriptions for your favorite knitter or crocheter this holiday season, or sign yourself up for an ongoing subscription that ships each month!

Starting November 20th and running through the 22nd, we are hosting an event of epic proportions in conjunction with Marinade Designs and Leawesome on Ravelry: Using our November Lorna's Laces Limited Edition colors, The Light Side and The Dark Side, geek out a little and prepare for the continuing saga of some of our favorite characters!

"Use the Force" forces you to choose between good or evil, by picking which color you'd like to dominate your project; kits are available for the Binge MKAL and MCAL, and the Knit and Crochet patterns can be purchased directly from Marinade Designs or Leawesome on Ravelry.

The fun begins on the 20th, but you can cast on anytime between now and the premier of Episode VII to join in on the fun!

      Project Inspiration from Universal, Fibra Natura, & Wisdom Yarns  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
New Universal, Fibra Natura, Wisdom yarns
Some of our favorite yarn makers are gearing up for the holiday season with glitz, glam, and glitter! Get ready to wow your crowd with garments made with these gorgeous gems from Universal Yarn, Fibra Natura, and Wisdom Yarns!
Planetary Shawl pattern
New Universal Yarns Universe is all about the party: created to celebrate Universal's 10th anniversary, it's a fabulous fingering-weight blend of lightweight linen, combed cotton, polyamide for strength, and of course, a touch of glitter!

Imagine showing up to that high-stakes holiday office party in the breathtaking Going Places Shawl, or the stunning Planetary Shawl - it's (forgive us, we couldn't resist) out of this world!
Victory Hat pattern
Universal Amphora is just as delectable - in a DK weight!

This soft and sumptuous blend of alpaca, mohair, and acrylic just glows in a beautiful palette of jewel tones, and makes warm garments and accessories with an incredible halo of velvety fibers.

Turn a simple topper into a marvel with the Victory Hat, or, use 2 of the gorgeous colors to make the Tembletop Cowl; just one ball of each color creates a warm and wonderful neck warmer!
Cozy Snood pattern
Speaking of keeping your neck warm, check out the Cozy Snood made up in new Fibra Natura Dona!

The squishy-soft, machine-washable yarn lends itself beautifully to the springy rib stitch of this cowl, and will look just perfect tucked under the collar of your favorite winter coat!

Or make one to match every coat you own - with over 30 colors, you can knit the rainbow in extra-fine merino wool!
Sweetie Cowl pattern
Have you caught the bulky-yarn bug? We have, and we're glad to say we're still perfectly on-trend for this season's bulky knits!

And so is new Wisdom Yarns Uno Superwash: it's a single-ply, roving-style super-bulky yarn that knits up super-fast into super-warm accessories!

The charming Sweetie Cowl takes just one ball, and the Tilted Scarf uses two balls to make a plush fabric you can wrap up in all winter long!

      Fresh & Fun Projects for Fall  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
We're celebrating our favorite season with a bang and a bevy of amazing new goodies that are sure to top your wish list once the holidays come around! Take a look at some of these fun finds for fall:
Ella and Ingrid pullover patterns
The folks at Swans Island have outdone themselves again! Swans Island All American Sport is a homegrown home run, and the patterns to go with it are just incredible!

The slimmer sister to All American Worsted, this stunning sport-weight is 100% Rambouillet wool that's sheep-to-skein made in the USA.
The colors are everything you'd expect from Swans Island's hand-dye studios: at once muted and bold, deeply saturated, and perfect for pairing with each other.

We love them in the newest Fair-Isle patterns from the collection, especially the Ella Pullover, Erika Cardigan, and Ingrid Pullover. Try your hand at a new technique and end up with a remarkable and timeless sweater for your wardrobe!
Add a little whimsy to your knitting or get ready for a holiday stitch marker swap (yes, they're a thing!) with some adorable new stitch markers from Viola Knits!

You'll smile each time you see one of these cute critters and shapes winking up at you. Each colorful charm hangs from a beautiful metal ring; some fit up to a US 15 needle!
Viola Knits Stitch Markers
Dover and Spring Dream shawl patterns
Sarah Kay Hartman is hooked on poetry - by her crochet hook, that is! Her new book, Poetic Crochet: 20 Shawls Inspired by Classic Poems, is filled with awe-inspiring crochet patterns with a literary theme to each, and we can't wait to get started on them!

We're in love with the Dover Shawl; the long crescent shape is perfect for wrapping the shoulders or wearing as a long scarf!
The Windhover Shawl, Radiant Maiden wrap, and Spring Dream Shawl are close runners-up - any of these beauties are sure to look grand gracing your shoulders!
New Shibui Dune is a dream come true: a DK-weight blend of baby alpaca, baby camel, and silk so soft and delicious you'll swoon to touch it!

The deep, luminous colors vibrate with possibility - anything you knit will be impossible to tear your eyes away from! Why not reinvigorate an old wardrobe staple: the pullover? The Cornice and Column versions from Shibui's fall collection are the perfect place to start!
Cornice and Column pullover patterns
DMC Top This hat kits
Talk about fun: the new DMC Creative World Top This Kits are a hoot! Especially if you choose the Owl topper... tee hee!

But seriously, who needs pom-poms when you've got adorable animals to top your colorful hat? Each of these cuties is a complete project: a ball of self-striping yarn, a hat pattern right on the label, plus an endearing stuffed animal for the top!
Every kid you know will be wishing for one of these in his or her stocking!

      New Fabulous Noro Yarns are Here!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Cabled Waistcoat pattern
Noro yarns are always in a class all their own with stunning color changes and amazing texture... and this fall's new options are no exception!

Perhaps the biggest news from Noro this season is their new A La Mode solids, perfect for pairing with Kureyon for all of your colorwork projects.

We love the simple A La Mode Cabled Waistcoat or Ribbed Scarf from the latest Issue of the World of Nature.
Woven Scarf pattern
If you are ready to give weaving a try, check out Kureopatora and Rainbow Rolls! Perfect for creating colorful woven scarves on your 10" or 15" Cricket Looms, these two yarns pair beautifully for wraps and scarves and make perfect gifts.

Just one Rainbow Roll and two balls of Kureyoptora is all it takes, and the coordinating colorways make it easy to pair together!
Rainbow Roll Shawl pattern
If the Rainbow Rolls alone are calling your name (because let's be honest, they really look good enough to eat!) then try them out with the Rainbow Roll Shawl a chunky knit blend of two different colorways... or if you need a little more to knit, try the Rainbow Roll Throw both are free patterns on Knitting Fever's website!
This fluffy pencil roving is fun to knit with while watching with anticipation as each color pulls off the roll, more beautiful than the last.
Pembroke Shawl pattern
Noro's most popular yarn is now available in a super bulky weight: Kureyon Air! A super bulky roving-style yarn, Kureyon Air has the same wooliness and exquisite color changes as the original Kureyon.

Sandy is anxious to knit up yet another Pembroke (this would be her 6th!) in this colorful marvel; the Sentiment Shawl would make another lovely yarn and pattern pairing.
Whichever one you choose, you'll love the way this self-striping yarn lends extra color and texture to the designs!
Shae Blazer pattern
And it wouldn't be fitting for us to leave out another of Claudia Wershing's Noro-centric collections.

Her latest, Game of Hues, features designs named after your favorite female Game of Thrones characters using lovely Noro yarns, including Shinroyoku, also new this fall!

Some of our favorite designs in this collection include the Shae Cardigan, Arya Cabled Pullover, and Ygritte Cardigan.

      Amy Herzog Options KAL with Rowan

Amy Herzog Options KAL


Are you a fan of Amy Herzog's Custom Fit? Then join her and Rowan for a unique new KAL!

Amy has created a fun choose-your-own-adventure of sorts with this project in the new Rowan Pure Wool Superwash DK. Choose from a cardigan or pullover, stripes or texture, full or 3/4 length sleeves, crewneck or v-neck.

If you love Custom Fit, you can use that program to get a pattern written especially for you, or use the pattern Amy wrote for Rowan in 12 sizes. Either way, you are sure to get a custom sweater that is all your own!

We have kits available for both the Pullover and the Cardigan, and although it's already started, there is still plenty of time to cast on and start knitting with the group!

      Just in time for the Holidays: Tosh Cornucopias!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Tosh Vintage Cornucopias

It's that time again: the Tosh Cornucopias are here! This year, we've created two baskets, both with Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage yarns in gorgeous fall colors.

The Small Cornucopia contains three skeins of Tosh Vintage, a cute Lantern Moon Tape Measure, and a scentless Mini Soak Wash so you can block your finished projects!

The Large Cornucopia contains 5 skeins of Tosh Vintage and a beautiful (and yummy smelling!) Milk, Oatmeal and Mud Soap from Black Rock Mud.

For both baskets, we are recommending the Tres Tosh Cowl, a new pattern on our Free Patterns Page, which uses 3 different colors of Tosh Vintage, or the knit or crocheted Hats for the Whole Family.

These Cornucopias are the perfect decor for a yarn-lover's Thanksgiving table... and you get to knit or crochet when you are finished! What more could you ask for?!?!
