Father's Day Knit Guide
 

As May comes to a close, we're setting our sights on summertime and all that comes along with the longer days and sunny rays. We've celebrated all of the mamas of the knitting world, and now it's time to celebrate the dads! The dads who taught you how to ride a bike, kept the boogeyman at bay, and kissed the boo boos away. Sure, dad might not be a knitter himself, but he's alway been your number one fan! Knitting is important to you, so it's important to him.

While your crafting prowess might have matured over the years, surpassing macaroni necklaces and stick figure drawings that hang on the fridge, dad's love for your creations remains the same - if you made it with your own two hands, it's a work of art! And, nothing says, "I love and appreciate you", quite like a knit gift.

Put your needles to work, and treat dad like the king that he is this Father's Day, with one of your crafty creations! Kyle has compiled a list of 5 perfect papa bear gifts for dear, ol' dad. Head over to the blog to see each of the kits he's come up with!

Quick Shot Duel
 

Knit 'em up, move 'em out!

Howdy, partner - it's time to duel! Quick Shot duel, that is. We've partnered with Madelinetosh to bring you brand new, never-before-seen Tosh colors, currently available in 3 of your favorite Tosh bases: Tosh Merino Light, Twist Light and Tosh Vintage (exclusively at Jimmy Beans!).

Dueling this week, we have Tosh Merino Light + Glitter Beta Crucis and Patagonia. Beta Crucis is a colorway of cosmic proportions - a gorgeous mixture of purple, blue, green, and pink tones. Your needles will be happy you knit with this one! Patagonia is a beautiful combination of blue tones, highlighted by subtle green tones. It will make your needles sing!

Who will emerge victorious? It's up to you! Don't be a namby-pamby! Pony up and head over yonder to our Facebook post to cast your vote. By hook or crook, we'll have a champion!

Gus' Clasp Weave Stole
 

Gus' Clasp Weave Stole

Gus was feeling particularly inspired by our new Plymouth Estilo yarn, so much so that he wove a stole! We love how his stole turned out, the muted colors and subtle striping effect remind us of a beautiful Southwest sunrise. The silky-soft combination of fine merino superwash and Mulberry silk make you want to stay wrapped in this stole forever! Way to go, Gus!
