Toshstrology April 2016 - Taurus

March came in like a lion, and April's going out like a... bull!

The Taurus installment of our Toshstrology 2016 Collection has come charging into the shop, and it's every bit as bright and boisterous as its namesake: a light and limey tonal green that will have you thinking spring! It's available in all the Tosh bases, so you can pick your favorite and stampede off to the knitting races!
Designs with Taurus
Some of the Beans have beat you to it: Kristen designed the leafy Taurus Slouch with one skein of Merino DK for her Toshstrology pattern collection, Jeanne used one skein of Tosh Chunky for her Swirling Taurus Beanie, and Chris whipped up the striking Arrows and Flights Stole with 2 skeins of Twist Light!

We've all been rather bullish on this great color - just take a look at the Project Log below to see some of our bright and beautiful creations!
And don't forget: the newest installment of the Toshstrology Blanket in Tosh DK is ready, so you can knit or crochet your way to the next part of your blanket! If you haven't yet, pick up a Toshstrology Blanket Kit and get each of the colors as they're revealed each month!

Chicken Boots wristlet and pouch
Of course, our installment wouldn't be complete without a new Stitch Marker Pouch from Chicken Boots to honor Taurus: the Space Bulls printed pouch is perfect for stashing all kinds of small items!

And, starting this month, you can also snag a cute little wristlet bag in a sweet Taurus inspired print! These wristlets will be exclusive to Jimmy Beans for a few months until Chicken boots releases them everywhere else!
Taurus, here's your yarnoscope: your signature traits of perseverance and determination will help you make a plan to tackle those UFOs hanging around - come on, you can do it! Some might call you stubborn, but that's a characteristic you can use to your advantage: when learning a new crafting skill or technique, you don't give up until you get it right... Perhaps now is the time to tackle that lace shawl you've been eyeing or try your hand at intricate colorwork!

Queen of Thorns MKAL 2016

This year's Queen of Thorns MKAL is finally here and with it a coordinating Lorna's Laces Limited Edition color!

Kristen has designed a special mystery shawl 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 Queen of Thorns MKAL Kits available, each with a pack of String Quintets in this month's Queen of Thorns colorway, plus one additional Staccato mini-skein in coordinating Pewter, and the pattern is available directly from Marinade Designs on Ravelry.

Kristen will start the MKAL on Sunday, April 24th, with a new clue posted each week for five weeks. The end result might not keep you safe from those frozen zombies from the north, but it will keep you warm!

      New Gorgeous Spring Yarns!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Like a breath of fresh air, some new spring yarns have hit our shop and are ready to hit your mailbox (and your needles and hooks!)!
Wave Cowl kit
Juniper Moon Farm has created a chunky cousin for its ever-popular Zooey yarn: introducing Zooey Aran, a heavy-worsted blend of cotton and linen that's light, breezy, and perfect for warm weather in pretty pastel colors.

We love the Coastal Shawl and Wave Cowl for their summery look and wearability!
Shibui Rain has the cotton corner covered: with a long-chainette construction to help prevent stretching and those saturated Shibui colorways, Rain will be your go-to yarn for summer garments.

We can hardly keep the Meridian Cardigan pattern in stock - and it's no wonder: it's the ideal layering piece for any weather!

Tonal Cowl kit
Babies and grownups alike will love the softness and worn-in feel of new Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim DK!

The Tonal Cowl from the Cotton Denim DK book really shows off the beautifully heathered colors in this unique yarn, and it's a circle of cozy comfort, to boot!
For even softer and loftier projects, turn to Rowan Softyak DK! It's an easy-knitting blend of cotton, yak, and nylon with a chainette construction that keeps it warm but lightweight.

It's ideal for sweaters and shawls alike, and Marie Wallin has put it to gorgeously good use in the new Softyak DK Collection with the Jumo pullover and the Pema cardigan!
