      Lorna's LLE - Queen of Thorns & MKAL!

LLE April '16 - Queen of Thorns

Season 6 of our favorite fantasy series (can you guess which one we mean?) is returning on April 24th, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Mostly because it's an excuse for yet another Ice and Fire inspired colorway and our 4th annual accompanying Mystery Knit Along! Last season left us with so many questions, especially when it came to choosing yet another iconic character to base this year's color after! Without further ado, we give you this year's Lorna's Laces Limited Edition color - Queen of Thorns!

Inspired by the matriarch of a family known for their beautiful rose gardens (she also happens to be the grandmother of the current Queen), her nickname Queen of Thorns refers to both her sharp tongue and the many thorny roses for which her home is known. And this gorgeous colorway is as verdant and intense as her smart and sassy personality: a blend of both vibrant and deep greens with touches of gray and charcoal to represent her darker side! It's available in your favorite Lorna's bases, plus String Quintets!
QoT MKAL 2016
But here's the really exciting part: we're hosting the 4th Annual MKAL again this year! Starting when the new season of the show airs on April 24th, this fun mystery event will run for 5 weeks, with a new clue posted each week.

Kristen has designed a special mystery shawlette using the new Lorna's String Quintets: 105-yard mini-skeins in the individual colors that make up the LE color, and whether or not you serve a Many-faced Deity, you're sure to love this many-colored MKAL!
We have Yarn Kits available (each with a pack of String Quintets plus one additional Staccato mini-skein in a coordinating colorway), and the pattern is available directly from Marinade Designs on Ravelry. And, as part of a special celebration during her birthday month, Kristen is offering this and all her other patterns as part of a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" Sale Extravaganza!
Of course, we also have an exclusive set of coordinating stitch markers from Spark!

These snag-free beauties were made to match the green hues in the yarn with a little crown charm, and they'll look fantastic dangling along in your next project!

And if you're worried about the QoT MKAL overlapping with the Dragonfly MKAL/MCAL, never fear: there are only 2 weeks of overlap, and each QoT clue uses approximately 100 yards, so making both projects at once will be easier than finding a sell-sword!

JBW products featured on HSN

It's official: Jimmy Beans Wool is part of the HSN family! On March 16th, Laura (a.k.a. Jimmy) joined the presenters on HSN during their 24 Hours of Craft to show off some of our favorite products: gorgeous, hand-dyed yarn and must-have knitting and crocheting accessories, naturally!

In case you missed it, click through to the HSN website and watch Laura present the Berroco Bento Boxes, our new and fabulous Big Beanie Bags, and the brand new Universal Jimmy Yarn Jumbles which we're a huge hit and make a great Mother's Day Gift! We were thrilled to be selected to appear on HSN and had a blast, too - and we hope we'll be gracing your mailboxes soon!

Yes, you saw that correctly! Big Beanie Bags are here! Check out what you could be getting each month in one of the HSN Big Beanie Bags which are available for tasting a la carte, or go straight for one of our Monthly Subscription options available in 4 color options: Warm Tones, Cool Tones, Neutrals, or Mystery!

Dragonfly MXAL 2016

It's almost time! Are you ready? Whether you're one of the hundreds who have fallen under the spell of our Lorna's Laces LLE Colorway, Jamie's Kilt, or you're just in the mood to watch a handsome hero save the day (as usual), we hope you're all set to join us for Mystery Knit- and Crochet-Along!

Designed by Rachel and Monika, each mystery project uses 2 skeins of Shepherd Sock: one in Jamie's Kilt and one in a contrasting color (our official pick is Fjord, but we have some other beauties picked out), and will unfold over the course of five weeks - one clue per week, starting April 9th.

If you haven't already snagged your supplies, we still have a few Yarn-Only Kits available, and be sure to purchase your patterns directly from Rachel (Unraveled Designs) and Monika (merryClusters) on Ravelry.

      Kit of the Month - Firefly MKAL/MCAL Cowl Kits now 45% Off!

Firefly MXAL patterns

The April Kit of the Month is mighty shiny: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Firefly Binge MKAL or MCAL Yarn-only kits are now 45% off!

To say that Rachel and Leanne are Firefly fans is like saying cowboys love horses and hats... and these two had the brilliant idea to team up for an extra-special Binge Mystery Knit-and-Crochet Along event last fall!

We had the great idea to make the kits available with some of your other favorite LLE colors as well: Choose from LLE colors Serenity, Light Side, or Dark Side (inspired by another space-favorite) in the Knit and Crochet Along yarn-only kit - each includes 2 skeins of Shepherd Sport. Plus, the designers will continue to honor the MKAL/MCAL price on the patterns and your cost will remain just $3!

Rachel will include a coupon code in every order for 50% off the knitted Jaynestown Cowl pattern cost (it's now $6) and Leawesome's crocheted design - the The Train Job Cowl will remain $3 indefinitely.

      Color Us Baaad - New Lantern Moon Blue Sheep!

blue sheep from Lantern Moon at JBW!

Sometimes you just need to stand out from the crowd...and what better way to do it than with one of our new Lantern Moon Blue Sheep Tape Measures or Stitch Markers?

These adorable sheep in a cheerful blue shade were the brainchild of a meeting between Jimmy (a.k.a. Laura) and Sharon of Lantern Moon, who kept imagining a whole flock of sheep with colorful fleeces - now, how fun would that be? As useful as they are charming, these nifty notions are sure to start a conversation when you whip them out of your knitting bag, and the bright blue color means they'll be easy to spot when you need them!

And stay tuned for more new members of the Many-Hued Herd - we're hoping to fill the shop with all the colors of the JBW Color Wheel over the coming months!
