Forget Me Not Shawl Kirsten Kapur
 

As the holidays close in on us, we're fondly looking back on the memories we've made this year, and looking forward to the memories we'll be making throughout the rest of the season. Memories are sacred and special, and it breaks our hearts to think about losing them.

November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, and we've partnered with Lorna's Laces and one of our favorite designers, Kirsten Kapur, in an effort to raise money for Alzheimer's Research. This is a cause very close to Kirsten's heart, as her father was affected by this horrible disease. (there's a beautiful forward in the pattern that tells his story.)

The Forget Me Not Shawl is a creative and gorgeous design, featuring a unique stitch pattern combining brioche stitch and a bold rib, perfectly showcasing the stunning variegated Lorna's Laces colorways. The kit comes with 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock and the Rosie Melligans Pattern. $5 from every kit sold will be donated to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research. So remember to appreciate the special moments that you've experienced in the past, and the memories that we have yet to make in the future, and knit a beautiful shawl for a worthy cause.

Craftvent Video 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
 

It's the final countdown! Craftvent is only 22 days away! Jimmy Clause and the elves are working night and day to put together 24 days of holiday crafting fun, but if you haven't reserved yours yet, time is running out!

It's officially last call to jump aboard Jimmy's Craftvent Express, and trust us, you don't want to let this train leave the station without you! Our Crochet version has officially sold out, and the quantities on our Joji Locatelli designed Sugar Plum Fairy and Silver Bells colorways are dwindling!

To celebrate our excitement, we had a little fun and made a short video that we think highlights our excitement for craftvent this year perfectly. Watch our rendition of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas!'!

If you're anything like the dear, crafty mother in our video, then we suggest you reserve your spot in our Craftvent project this holiday season. We'll see you in December!

Namaste Products
 

What's In A Name, You Say?

Namaste! The beautiful bags and cases of Namaste were intentionally designed to help incorporate knitting into our busy day-to-day lives; to bring moments of peace and happiness throughout the day.

Keeping the original Namaste designs in mind (from before Jimmy bought the brand!), you might recognize the Buddy Case and the Oh Snap bags. These pieces stuck around from the "good ol' days", with each design being thoughtfully redesigned and improved by the knitters at Jimmy Beans Wool. (We're talking stronger magnets and higher quality materials, just to name a few of the design improvements!)

We're focused on keeping things simple, while being environmentally and socially conscious, and we're really proud of the new and improved Namaste products! Shop the Bag Collection, the Case Collection, and the Oh Snap Collection, and join us in reaching Knitting Nirvana!

Free Pattern Friday!

This week's FPF (Free Pattern Friday) was provided by the Christmas at Sea program. The people at the Seamen's Church Institute are working year-round to provide mariners and seafaring workers with knitted gifts to keep them warm when their difficult jobs keep them on the oceans over the holidays. They have 5 (YEP! 5 FREE PATTERNS!) patterns they provided for us, and the best part? If you knit one and donate it to this worthy cause, we'll reimburse you 20% of your cost! Warm a mariner's heart (and head!) this Christmas and we'll chip in 20% for every hat donated.

Stitches West VK Live
 

Jimmy, a.k.a. Laura Zandiego, was at Stitches in Pasadena this past weekend! Did you see her?! We loved meeting you, our fellow crafters, and had a great time visiting with all of our friends in the fiber arts community! Thanks to all of you who helped in our booth - we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed having you!

Couldn't make it to Stitches? Catch Jimmy in Minneapolis THIS weekend, November 9th-11th, at VK Live! She'll be holding down the booth through the weekend AND hosting the Namaste fashion show on Saturday! (Yep, she's kind of like superwoman - she can do it all!) See you in Minneapolis, fiber friends!

Sarah's Hermione's Everyday Socks

Just like the witch they borrow their namesake from, these socks are brilliant! They are great for hanging out at home with the best of friends, or excellent for curling up with a good book. One skein of fingering weight yarn will get you a pair in no time - no time turner needed!
