Jimmy Beans 2018 Year of Giving

Jimmy Beans 2018 Year of Giving

This year, in 2018, Jimmy Beans, Lorna's Laces, and 12 designers are paying it forward while knitting fabulous new projects! Each month, one of our selected designers will release a new pattern in honor of a nonprofit organization or charity of their choosing, and Lorna's Laces will create a custom-dyed color to go along with it! We'll be selling these as kits each month, and $5.00 will be donated for every kit sold to the selected charity!

Unlike previous years, these limited edition Lorna’s Laces colors will only be available through the purchase of a YoG kit.

Below, you’ll find a running list of each month’s kit, along with videos and the progress we’ve made thus far in reaching our goals!

Tanis Gray lovingly designed the Whippersnapper Cowl for February to remind us that there are endless opportunities in life and no dream is too big if you have the right support system to help you along the way! Her chosen organization, the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, strives “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”

Tanis’ Fair Isle cowl, with its motif of boys and girls holding hands, is the perfect representation of the Boys and Girls Club’s mission, and you’ll feel right at home in its cozy combination of Shepherd Worsted in the limited edition “Whippersnapper” paired with beautiful Berry.

January - Amanda Jarvis' Snow Dog Shawl Benefiting the SPCA

Our indogural kit for January is guaranteed to give you the warm and fuzzies - literally! Each kit contains two hanks of Shepherd Sport in "Snow Dog", which is enough to knit the included Snow Dog Shawl pattern from Amanda Jarvis of Lorna's Laces!

Amanda’s chosen charity, the SPCA of Northern Nevada, is on a mission to be an “innovative regional leader in responsible treatment of homeless dogs and cats, primarily through their rescue and placement in forever loving homes, and by promoting spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation.
