Love Fest Fibers!
 

This might go without saying, but... we love Love Fest! New to Jimmy Beans, our first ever shipment of Love Fest Fibers has just arrived, and we have officially turned into the heart eye emoji! Not only are we head over heels for their yarn, it's soft, big, and perfect for chunky knits, but we love their mission too!

Based in San Francisco, owner, Britt, travels up and down the West Coast searching for only the finest fiber and sources for her yarn. She also partners with workshops across the Tibetan Plateau, who create handspun and dyed yarn. Britt is passionate about supporting communities with vibrant textile traditions! Grab a pair of US 50 needles or a US U hook, and get to craftin'!

Wow-ee, good for the environment, and cozy as can be! If you are looking for chunky craft-spiration, checkout the pattern page on Love Fest's website - you'll find free patterns that are sure to inspire your next project!

We've Got... Hedgehogs?!

Hedgehog Fibres, that is! Since we started carrying Hedgehog Fibres a few months ago, we've continued to expand our collection of these fibrous beauties, including 3 new colors of Merino DK and 3 new colors of Skinny Singles! You could say we're in [hedge]hog heaven! (So much so, that Hedgehog Fibres is featured in both our Craftvent Calendar Silver Bells and our Crochet Craftvent Calendar this year!)

Snag your skein before these superb shades are snapped up in a fellow fiber friend's shopping cart!

Holy cannoli, does this yarn live up to its name! Rowan's newest line, Baby Cashsoft Merino is a super soft blend of cashmere and merino. Gentle to the touch, and offering great stitch definition, this fingering weight yarn is perfect for babies and adults, alike! (Though its machine washable quality makes it reallllly perfect for baby projects!) Available in 20 different colors, this yarn will fill the hole that Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino left in your heart, when it was discontinued earlier this year. Yippee!

New Drea Renee Knits Patterns!

If one thing's for sure, it's that Andrea Mowry is a powerhouse in the knitwear design world! We love her designs, and know that you do too! Her patterns are consistently amongst Ravelry's Hot Right Now patterns, and we sell out so quickly that we have a hard time keeping them on our shelves!

Well, fiber fanatics, we have a great news! We've just received a fresh shipment of Andrea Mowry patterns! We've restocked some of your long-time favorites, and have brought in 4 new-to-us patterns: Birds of a Feather, Bricohealusicous Shawl, Ramble Shawl, and Golden Hour Shawl. Get 'em before they're gone!

If you're more a 'yarn-and-pattern-altogether' kinda crafter, we've got you covered with kits of each of the new patterns! Just don't drool too much... knit bibs aren't included, hehe!

I Heart the 80's Sock Kits
 

Poofy Hair, Shoulder Pads, Leg Warmers, and... Socks!

What do Michael J. Fox, Molly Ringwald, and Matthew Broderick all have in common? Blockbusters from the 80s, that's what! Their movies are also the inspiration behind our latest kits, the I Heart the 80s Sock Kits! Using 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport, each kit results in a cozy pair of thick socks - perfect for lounging around the house or wearing with your favorite pair of fall boots! In addition to yarn, each kit also includes Doppelganger, designed by verybusymonkey, popcorn, and your favorite childhood candy! So, what's it going to be?! Go bold in neon-tastic Great Scott!, turn heads with soft and warm Sweet Sixteen, or make a statement with Bueller, Bueller, Bueller!

Beanie Bag Project Club

Winter is Coming!

With fall right around the corner, we know winter won't be far behind (especially if you live somewhere like Reno... our fall is usually just a few short weeks of mild weather in between blazing hot summer and freezing cold winter months!). Our very own Rachel Roden, of Unraveled Designs, wants to help you get a jumpstart on your winter knitting. She's designed our 4th quarter Beanie Bag Project, and it's a stunner!

 

Simple striping and slipped stitches make this hat perfect for knitting in your downtime! Utilizing several superwash yarns in a teal, purple, and grey color palette, it would make the perfect gift. That is, if you can bear to part with it! Sign up today to receive all 3 months of this cozy progressive project!
