Berroco Pixel
 

We're showing our stripes... literally! If you're a fan of stripes, this week's newsletter will be full of craft-spiration for you!

Living up to the stripe-hype, Berroco Pixel has quickly become a favorite at Jimmy Beans! As one of Berroco's new fall lines, this speckled dye, self-striping yarn puts a fresh spin on an age-old question: speckles or stripes? Pixel has confirmed that the answer is... BOTH!

Generous yardage makes this yarn perfect for a variety of projects - from socks, to scarves, to sweaters! And, did we mention it's machine washable? Pixel perfect!

If you're not sure what to craft out of your new favorite self-striping yarn, we've got you covered with kits specially curated for the stripe lovers in your life!

Urth Yarns
 

Continuing on our journey through stripe-nation, we've arrived at our next destination... Urth Yarns! Just like Pixel, Uneek Fingering is a self-striping stunner that is sure to take your striped knits to the next level! Hand dyed to perfection, each skein is truly a uneek (hehe, get it?!) work of art!

If striped socks are on your to-knit list, you'll want to take a peek at Uneek Sock Kits! Each kit comes with 2 identical, pre-wound cakes of Uneek Sock, a self-striping blend of merino wool and nylon, in addition to 3 sock patterns! With enough yardage to make a matching sock out of each cake, these are sure to knock your socks off... or on?

As a bonus, for every skein of Urth Yarns that is purchased, a tree is planted! Do good AND knit good - that's what we call a win-win!

Micro-Brewed Stash Club - Black Elephant!

Though we are inching closer to fall, it's still very much summer here in Reno, which means it's still HOT! Quenching our thirst this month is our September Micro-Brew from Black Elephant! Aptly named Vivienne Westwood (the color is inspired by Bold Betty, Vivienne Westwood!), this gorgeous, silvery grey colorway has bright speckles of orange, fuchsia, and gold! Heralded as helping shape the 1970s punk scene in London, the Vivienne Westwood colorway is the perfect homage to Vivienne's style! Sign up for the Micro-Brewed Project Club now, and receive Vivienne Westwood this month!

Project On Our Needles!

Jenn's Rings of Rings Cowl WIP
 

Jenn's Rings of Rings Cowl (WIP)

Jenn fell in love with our new Manos Del Uruguay Fino Miniskein Sets, and set out to find the perfect pattern! She's a stripes kinda girl, and set her sights on the Rings of Rings Cowl, a free pattern from Manos Del Uruguay, and the rest is history! She's been knittin' up a storm, and loves the color combo of the miniskein set that she picked, Georgiana! She described her set as being like "an adult rainbow!" We agree - we love this combo, and how the cowl is knitting up thus far! The colors will be absolutely perfect for fall!
