Picture this: You're on the couch, knit-flixing, when you realize that you need to measure your project. Have you knit 6" yet?! It's hard to tell. You contemplate making a guesstimate, when you look down at your remaining ball of yarn. Nope, you can't afford to play yarn chicken with this one. You dig through your project bag, check in between the couch cushions, yell for the nearest family member. Nothing. No tape measure in sight. You're racking your brain... where did I leave that gosh darn tape measure?!? You're committed to the search, so you trek around the house. Kitchen drawer? Nope. Craft closet? Negative. Bedside table? Definitely not. Then, you remember that you were knitting at your kid's soccer game last weekend... eureka, backseat of the car! A good 15 minutes later, you settle back onto the couch and continue knitting.

Now, picture this: You're on the couch, knit-flixing, when you realize that you need to measure your project. Have you knit 6" yet?! It's hard to tell. Conveniently, your circular knitting needle is both a needle and a tape measure, all-in-one! No need to pause your current episode of The Crown to frantically search the house, you don't even need to leave the comfort of your couch! Within 30 seconds, your project is measured, and you're back to knitting.

When life is already hard enough, there's no need to make your crafting harder than it needs to be. Order your set of Jimmy's SmartStix today, and they will ship to you by Monday, August 20th! Available as circulars, DPNs, and crochet hooks, there's a tool for every project! Most importantly, save yourself the time and energy of searching for the tool that you need, so that you can focus on what's important - crafting! Craft smarter, not harder, friends!

Stock up on Shepherd Sock!

If mysteries aren't your cup of tea, never fear, the Floozy Cardigan KAL is here! Knit from the top down (no seaming... can I get a, 'woot woot'?!), you'll achieve this colorful yoke through the use of slipped stitches. This means that there's no colorwork involved, just simple, easy knitting, making the cardigan suitable for knitters of all levels. Easy peasy, right?!

Designed by Libby Johnson, Floozy will be released on Friday, August 17th, in Libby's Ravelry Store. Keeping with the KISS method (keep it super simple), Nadia's created kits using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock and Staccato, making ordering a snap! We love the color combos that she came up with, and hope that you will too!

Stash Rewind
 
Stash Rewind Cbfall Ravelry

We're officially halfway through the month of August... have you been hashtagging your FO's on Instagram with #StashRewind?? Our latest reigning #stashrewind champ, Christa (@cbfall), hashtagged her Miss Grace Shawl, and the Beans fell in love! Christa used yarns leftover from previous Big Beanie Bags to create her shawl, which utilizes tapestry knitting, giving the shawl its unique appearance.

 

If your project didn't make it into July's contest, we are now accepting submissions for August! To enter, hashtag a photo of your completed project using #StashRewind on Instagram! We'll rewind the stash of one lucky crafter - if your project is selected, you'll win a Jimmy Beans Wool gift certificate for the cost of the yarn used in your winning project!

You have unlimited chances to enter each month (one photo per project), so get knittin', and start snappin'. We can't wait to rewind your stash!

Project On Our Needles!

Jasper Jumbo Cowl
 

Wendy's Jasper Jumbo Cowl!

After Rachel taught her how to arm knit for our arm knitting video tutorial, Wendy fell in love with Woolstok Jumbo! Feeling inspired, she found this free pattern, Jasper Jumbo Cowl, on Blue Sky Fibers' website. This quick knit uses size US 50 needles and 1 cone of Woolstok Jumbo - you can knit this cowl in one evening! Super cozy, this cowl is perfect for keeping warm in the coming colder months. Way to go, Wendy!
