      Introducing Toshstrology!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Tosh LE January 2016

We've seen it in the stars: our Tosh Limited Edition Collection is back for another year with a brand new theme straight from the heavens: Toshstrology is an inspired collection based on the signs of the Zodiac, with gorgeous colors to match!

Each month will correspond to a Western traditional astrological sign, and the colors for each of the four elemental groups (Air, Water, Earth, and Fire) will all complement one another in a coordinated mini-collection!
Aquarius Hat pattern
We're kicking things off this year with Aquarius (19Jan-20Feb), an Air sign associated with the personality traits of inventiveness and originality - fitting for the launch of a new yarn collection!

Tosh created a gorgeous shade in a mix of purples that's perfectly on trend (another Aquarian attribute!), and we have two new patterns to go with it:

Kristen's Aquarius Hat uses 1 skein of Tosh Vintage, and each skein of Vintage in this month's colorway comes with a coupon code for half off the pattern price in Kristen's Ravelry shop!
Or, you can purchase the Toshstrology Collection 2016 E-Book and receive all of Kristen's monthly Toshstrology patterns as they come out for just $15!

We've got you crocheters covered, too: as part of a new, quarterly crochet collection, Leanne has created the cozy One Way Cowl using just 2 skeins of Tosh Home!
One Way Cowl pattern
And, to bring all of the symbols (and colors) together in perfect celestial harmony, we'll be knitting and crocheting a special "Toshstrology" Blanket as the year progresses; it will use 1 skein of Tosh DK in each month's color, and the pattern is free on the Jimmy Beans Wool Free Patterns Page - at the end of the year, you'll have a beautiful blanket!
Chicken Boots stitch marker pouches
A new year and a new collection called for a new collection of limited edition notions, so we've teamed up with Chicken Boots for a special set of Stitch Marker Pouches to coordinate with the monthly Tosh colors! (Don't worry, you'll still get your Black Rock Mud fix with our Micro-Brewed Collection!)

This month's pouches feature two fun celestial signs prints and are perfect for storing stitch markers, spare change, or your star charts - choose between Antique Signs and Modern Signs!
Finally, we wouldn't leave you without your Yarnoscope for this month:

Aquarius, you're coming out of winter hibernation and starting to tie up loose ends from last year; this means finishing those UFOs and reorganizing your stash! Your eye for style will guide you to pick the perfect new patterns for this year, and your innovative nature might even lead you to design something of your own!

Beanie Bag contents January 2016

The January Beanie Bags were all about keeping you warm in this chilly winter!

A sampling of deliciously soft and lofty Cascade yarns including Cloud, El Cielo, Highland Duo, and Lana d'Oro worked up into a knitted or crocheted mini-kerchief (pattern included!), all bundled together with a gorgeous wooden shawl stick and a packet of Soak Wash! It's the best $10 (shipping included!) we spent so far this year!
