What's New at Jimmy Beans - Craftvent is Back!
This year, cast on to a scarf, in either knit or crochet, that results in a gorgeous finished project at the end of the month - think of it like a month-long Christmas gift to yourself (or your loved ones)! Take pride in the project you've accomplished, which utilizes different stitch patterns for a fun challenge in each section. Both projects use Madelinetosh yarn for an elegant project fit for any snow queen this season! This scarf keeps you on your toes the whole time, honing your already impressive skills and gives you a fun activity to take part in every day in December!
The knit Craftvent project was designed by our own Bean, Amy Gunderson, lovingly named the Tidings to Yew Scarf! Inspired by the chilly season and intricate snowflakes, she got to work on a gorgeous, lacy wrap.
Are you a crocheter? This project is for you too! The crochet version of this scarf was designed by none other than CocoCrochetLee! The aptly named Ginger Snap Wrap features advanced crochet techniques to give you some brain food this season with different cable work in each section as well as some other techniques peppered in!
Both options have two festive colorways to choose from
- Cinnamon Sugar: Warm and cozy, this colorway reminds us of baked goods with warm neutrals and autumn shades.
- Northern Lights: Fun and festive, this colorway is made up of cool blues, frosty purples, and wintery whites.

Welcome to knitting nirvana. Namaste is where making and mindfulness meet. Having long-admired the brand, Jimmy jumped at the chance to purchase Namaste in 2018, and, as they say, the rest is history! Each bag has been designed with the intention to incorporate making into your busy day-to-day life; to bring little moments of peace and happiness throughout your day. All Namaste products are designed specifically for makers and crafters alike!
In late 2017, Laura, a.k.a. Jimmy, and 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, SmartStix was officially born in 2018!
Yarn isn't the only thing that we love - we also love pairing it with patterns to create our exclusive kits and KALs/CALs (Knit/Crochet Alongs)! Whether it be our annual mother's day bouquets, movie-centered designs, or seasonal surprises, we love creating exclusive projects for you! Stay tuned in 2020 for more kits and KALs comin' your way!

Returning in 2019, after a year long hiatus, Lorna's Limited Edition Colorways were brought back in 2019! In July 2007 (our FIRST collaboration!), we teamed up with our friends (and amazing dyers) at Lorna's Laces to create a line of limited edition colorways! Since then, we've been inspired by plenty of different things such as the time of the year, upcoming holidays, the weather outside, current events, and pop culture!
