Brand New Berroco
 

At the end of winter, when wool becomes too warm to knit with, when we instead yarn - excuse me, yearn! - for the warmth of the sun on our skin, and when our needles beckon for lightweight linen and comfy cotton, Berroco is here to answer the call. Here at Jimmy Beans, one of the biggest signs that spring has sprung is the arrival of brand new Berroco yarns!

Fragaria Tee Kit
 

Featured in Portfolio Vol. 5, the Remix Light Fragaria Tee, aptly knit in the color Strawberry, was just too delicious for Jenny's needles to pass up: its color is not only reminiscent of her favorite treats to pick in Sweden (she has family there on her mom's side) but also of the color so commonly found on Swedish homes.

 
Fragaria Tee Kit

Jenny says this project provides a great example of "hygge" (pronounced "hue-guh"); as she knits she happily thinks of summers spent in Sweden, and at the same time acknowledges the cozy contentment those memories bring!

Jenny writes more about this Danish concept in the blog. Read all about it and find out which projects makes Jenny feel the most "hygge"!

Knitting Retreat Spotlight: Alana Dakos

Have you signed up yet for our 2018 Summer Knitting Retreat, from June 7-10? We still have spots available and a new option for our local customers! Be sure to follow along with our newsletters each week as we'll be highlighting a new guest instructor and class. First up is Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting:

 
2018 Knitting Retreat

Designing Stitch Motifs with Traveling Cables

In this 2-hour class, students will learn how to use different types of cables with combinations of knit and purl stitches to create free-flowing stitch motifs that appear embossed in their knitting. Alana will show examples of how she's used these various techniques in personal design work and explain their application. The class will then experiment with different cabling techniques and students will have free time to play and create their own free-flowing design on a baby hat worked in the round!

 

Alana has published best selling knitting titles such as Coastal Knits (co-authored with Hannah Fettig) in 2011, Botanical Knits in 2012, Botanical Knits 2 in 2013, and Baby Botanicals in 2015. Alana's design aesthetic reflects her love of nature and textured stitches. She often works botanical inspiration into her knits and loves to teach others how to do the same!

If you're a fan of addi and did flips over their FlexiFlips needles (well, more like triple axels since you cleaned us out!) check out these other new arrivals! Like the FlexiFlips, each is designed to take knitting to a whole new level of comfort: both addiClick Mix sets and FlipStix double points feature dual tips - one lace and one turbo - so you can add even more personalization to your knitting experience. And if you enjoy knitting smaller projects on circular needles, EasyKnit needles are for you! These 10" circular needles feature one short tip and one long tip, allowing for more cord flexibility when knitting small projects in the round.

 

Test Drive New Products at Sip & Shop!

We took our new addi FlipStix for a test drive and you should too! Give 'em a whirl and your wine a swirl during our next Sip & Shop! Join us February 21st at the JB Headquarters from 5-8pm where you and your friends can drink wine, shop the warehouse and test out our new Berroco yarns with our new addi needles! It'll make you want to buy an Audi, err... addi!
