What's New at Jimmy Beans - The Jimmy Beans Wool Craftvent Calendar!
You read that right - the Jimmy Beans Wool Craftvent Calendar is back! This year, cast-on with a wrap available for both knitters and crocheters, resulting in a gorgeous, finished garment by the end of the month (think of it as a month-long present to yourself or a loved one)! Each large project uses 100% Merino Singles from Madelinetosh, Moondrake Co., and Neighborhood Fiber Company!
The knit Festive Wrap designed by Ambah O'Brien, uses wavy stripes to reflect the summer heat she enjoys while her northern hemisphere fiber friends are snuggling into the cozy cold season.
The crochet Tidings Wrap, designed by Jane Crowfoot, features lovely crochet techniques resulting in snowflake-esque motifs, this one is reminiscent of frosted windows and the stillness of winter nights.
The knit AND crochet 'Tis the Season Mitts, designed by Amy Gunderson, showcase stripes of different techniques that result in something not only beautiful but comfortable to wear as well - the cold won't bother us in these mitts anyway!
Upon wrapping up Craftvent one year, we sighed to ourselves and asked, "Why can't we have more of these month-long celebrations?" And thus, Fright Club and the Birthday Box were born! These three Make-Alongs are perfect for any adventurous beginner and beyond, suitable for knitters and crocheters alike! The Birthday Box is good for year-round making no matter when your birthday is while Craftvent and Fright Club are specific to the candy-giving and gift-giving seasons.

Beans for Brains is a 501(c)(3) merit-based scholarship program for artistic students attending an approved accredited institution of higher education in the United States of America. This program recognizes students for a variety of characteristics such as GPA, community service, project knowledge, financial need, and more, all while uplifting their creativity through fiber arts! This year, we awarded three scholarships of $2500 to students, sponsored by Jimmy Beans Wool, Madelinetosh, and Knitter's Pride.

Flowers are nice, but yarn flowers? Even better! No yarn enthusiast can say no to a lovely bouquet of flowery fiber! Each bouquet is artfully arranged by our stellar production team, resembling a full, gorgeous bundle of flowers meant to be used in some of our favorite patterns from designers such as Joji Locatelli, Caitlin Hunter, Lisa Hannes, and Andrea Mowry. Each arrangement comes with a vessel to reuse and has the option to send a personal message for your recipient!

Welcome to the new della Q!

In late 2017, Laura, a.k.a. Jimmy, and the Jimmy Beans Wool general manager, Shannon, were in India, when Laura realized she forgot her tape measure. Luckily with a sharpie, a ruler app on Jimmy's phone and a brilliant idea from Shannon, they turned Jimmy's knitting needles into a tape measure with marks at every inch, and that's when Jimmy said, "Dang! That's smart!" and so, Jimmy's SmartStix was officially born in 2018 with needles ranging from circulars to double points and interchangeables!
Yummy yarn and fuzzy fibers aren't the only thing that we love - we also love pairing it with patterns to create our exclusive kits and KALs/CALs (Knit-Along / Crochet-Along)! Whether it be our annual Mother's Day bouquets, pop culture-centered designs, seasonal surprises,or random sparks of inspiration, we love creating exclusive projects for you! With some having options for multiple colorways, our kits have a certain "Jimmy" touch to them! Stay tuned in 2021 for more kits and KALs comin' your way!
