LLE June 2016 - Melting Pot

There's one sure-fire way to stand out in the (prison) crowd (well, maybe there are a few, but we'll leave those to your imagination!): with splatter-dyed yarn! This month, OITNB returns to Netflix with a new season, and Lorna's has returned to the dye pots to whip up a color that represents the funky fusion of personalities, cultures, and backgrounds you'd find at your nearest women's penitentiary (or workplace, let's be honest!): jump into the Melting Pot with a skein of your favorite Lorna's yarn!
Binge Mystery Knit-Along
To add to the fun, Rachel's devised a criminally good Binge Mystery Knit-Along to go with this vibrant colorway!

Using 1 or 2 skeins of Shepherd Sport (you have options!), she'll post clues on Ravelry in rapid succession over the course of a few days, starting June 17th.

It's the perfect project to knit while you binge-watch the new season of the show!
Just don't forget your exclusive Spark Stitch Markers - they're especially hand-crafted to match the lively hues of this month's yarn, and they'll look extra vivid dangling along in your project!
This space-and-splatter-dyed Limited Edition colorway is gutsy, gorgeous, and glowing with color - reds, yellows, greens, blues, and of course, oranges! It's as interesting and attention-grabbing as you can get without breaking the law, and it's available in all of our regular Lorna's bases, plus an extra-fun set of String Quintets!

Check out Erika's On the Spice Market Shawl by Melanie Berg that she is knitting using the String Quintet pack with one additional natural colored Staccato, and a skein of Shepherd Sock in Charcoal. We've even put an On the Spice Market Kit together so you can create your own fun custom color combo!

      Queen of Thorns MKAL Recap  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Queen of Thorns MKAL

Our Queen of Thorns MKAL is at an end, and like the matriarch of Highgarden, over 1200 of you "grew strong" - and knit an amazing shawl!

As colorful as the character who inspired it, the Queen of Thorns Shawl will look fabulous and absolutely queenly gracing your shoulders during your next Small Council meeting - or staff meeting, or PTA meeting!

If you missed the boat to Braavos on this one, never fear: you can still snag a Queen of Thorns Shawl Kit in a different color and grab the pattern in Kristen's Ravelry store to knit your own!

      May Big Beanie Bag Contents  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Judging by the first month's response, it looks like you're as excited as we are about our new Big Beanie Bags! May's inaugural bag celebrated the newest yarn from Rowan, Softyak DK, and it was something to celebrate: a luxurious blend of cotton and yak down, this sumptuous (but machine-washable!) yarn is great for everything from shawls to garments, and the beautiful colors are to "dye" for!

So what was in the bag? Take a look:

Big Beanie Bags May Contents

Each bag contained:
All wrapped up in a custom drawstring bag that you can use to carry your work-in-progress!

Intrigued? Grab your own Big Beanie Bag Subscription! You can choose your color palette, too! But hurry - these babies are selling like hotcakes, and supply is limited, so get yours while you still can!

New Chicken Boots prints


They're here and they're waiting for your adoration: new prints from Chicken Boots!

Creator and head seamstress Saremy always picks the cutest fabrics, and these are no exception: choose Dala, Sloth, Flutter, or Picnic (or get something in all of them!) and give your knitting bag a colorful refresher for summer!
Moorish Shawl Pins from Jul
New shawl sticks and pins from Jul just hit the warehouse, and they're bringing all the heat of a summer bazaar!

These Moorish inspired beauties feature geometric cutouts that will let bits of color shine through from you next knitted or crocheted masterpiece, and they're sure to garner plenty of compliments!

The Moroccan Window Stick and Shawl Pin would look right at home in a sultan's palace, and the Alhambra Lace Shawl Pin is understated but stunning!
Swans Island limited edition Ikat yarn
We're swooning over new Swans Island Indigo Ikat Fingering Merino - so much naturally-dyed color in one spot! These special skeins were tie-dyed by hand in the traditional Ikat style, and the result is a beautifully balanced, organic-looking color patterns that look fantastic when knit up!

Want to try it for yourself? Grab a skein and knit the simple but stunning Sumatra Mitts - a free pattern from Swans Island!
Manos Marina laceweight yarn

Not a lace-weight yarn lover? New Manos del Uruguay Marina might convert you - it's that beautiful!

The soft, single-ply strands seem lit from within with gorgeous, muted colors that you'll covet the moment you lay eyes on them!

And if you need an idea of what to make, just look at the Mirto Shawl - with open mesh lace and a pretty edging, you'll have this beauty off the needles in the time it takes to say, "I love lace!"!

      Portable Knits for Summer Travels  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
For many of us, summer time is travel time - whether it's a family road trip, a beach vacation, or a picnic at the park - and one thing we always pack is our knitting!

Deciding on what projects to take along, though, is another story: travel projects should be simple enough to pick up (and put down) anywhere, small enough to not be burdensome, and interesting enough to keep us going without bogging down our heat-riddled brains!

We've got a few fun suggestions for perfectly portable projects for your next outing!

What are your favorite projects to take with you on the go? Let us know (and share your pictures!) on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
