Uneek Socks Kits
 

While it might seem early, Reno-ites are headed back to school on Monday! After a summer full of activities with the kids (and not a lot of time for knitting), the Mama Beans are ready for a well-deserved break. Don't get us wrong, we love our Bean Sprouts, but... knitting. Fellow mama knitters get it, right?! Time to dust off our 'tools of the trade', and get back to what we do best - crafting!

And, what better way to get back in the swing of things, than with our new Urth Yarns Uneek Sock Kits?! Each kit comes with 2 identical, pre-wound cakes of Uneek Sock, a self-striping blend of merino wool and nylon. With enough yardage to make a matching sock out of each cake, these self-striping stunners are sure to knock your socks off... or on? And, for every kit that is purchased, a tree will be planted in sub-Saharan Africa, as part of Urth Yarns' partnership with Trees for the Future! That's what we call a win-win!

Cascade Cupcakes Sampler 2018
 

Cascade, cupcakes, and samplers - just a few of our favorite things, wrapped into one delightfully delicious kit! (Disclaimer: They are yarn cupcakes, though we'd argue that this makes them even more delightfully delicious!) If you've ever been plagued with yarn indecision, this is the sampler for you! Including 6 cupcakes, a.k.a. 90 yard samples, you can taste test 6 of Cascade's most-loved yarns, without having to commit to an entire skein! Also included in your sampler is the Milvus Wrap pattern, a unique kite-shaped wrap, designed by Shannon Dunbabin. Don't let this sampler fly away without you!

Crochet Guild of America

Crochet Guild of America
 

We recently had the honor of becoming a sponsor for the Crochet Guild of America! We were invited to join CGOA for their annual conference this past weekend in Portland. Jeff and Shannon headed up to Portland to represent the Bean Team, and had a wonderful time getting to know the members in attendance! We brought a bag of swag, and had so much fun passing out goodies... maybe too much fun! Jeff likened himself to "playing Santa" - you can read more about Jeff and Shannon's experience over on our blog!

 
 
Micro Brew August
 

We've had back-to-back weeks of triple digit weather. Needless to say, all of this heat is making us thirsty! Quenching our thirst this month is our most recent Micro-Brew (yarn, that is!), Star-Spangled Sally Ride! Dyed by our very own Rachel, of Unraveled Designs, this stellar colorway is inspired by Sally Ride, the first American woman in space! As an extra bonus, Rachel designed the Serriform shawl - sign up for the Micro-Brewed Stash Club before August 20th, and you'll receive a Ravelry download code for Serriform, while supplies last!
