Jimmy Beans 2018 Recap
 

What a year 2018 has been! (And, if we're being honest, we can't believe that it is almost over!) So many wonderful new yarns, colors, and designs - it was a great year for the fiber arts community! We're thankful to have crafted with you this year, and we look forward to even more crafting together in 2019!

Before we start planning our 2019 projects, we are fondly looking back on the yarn that inspired us (and you!) this year. Keep scrolling for some of our most popular hand-dyed brands and colors of the year... the palette of yarn that YOU most wanted to craft with in 2018!

Without further Adieu...

But What About 2018 KALS?!?

The yarn selection wasn't the only thing that was superb in 2018 - we also had the best time knitting along with you for some of our favorite KALs to date!

Celebrating Team USA in the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Speckles and Stripes KAL started the year off with a red, white, and blue bang! Shortly after that, we saw red and launched into the Yarnmaid's Tale KAL, our fibery take on one of Hulu's most popular shows! Fast forward to the summer, and we had a ferociously fin... err, fun... time watching Shark Week and knitting the Shark Bite 3-D KAL! Rounding out our 2018 KALs was the Drums of Autumn KAL, allowing us to head back in time with our favorite time traveling duo from this Starz sensation!

Whew! If you missed out on any of these KALs, it's not too late to join. We only have a few kits left in stock of each - get yours now, before they are gone for good, and stay tuned in 2019 for more KALs comin' your way!

Meet the Beans!

What's on your needles or hooks right now?! Holiday crafting or self-crafting?!

 

Miranda, Customer Service Bean, 3 months

I'm selfishly knitting Ixchel from Pom Pom Quarterly - Issue 26 in Madelinetosh Twist Light colors Fathom and Liquid Gold. Just getting a headstart for my New Year's challenge knit - hopefully it'll be done before this time next year!

Miranda's Project Ixchel
 
April's Project Regular Guy Beanie

April, Fulfillment Bean, 2 Months

I am knitting the Regular Guy Beanie, by Chuck Wright, using Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca for myself. To finish up Christmas presents, I'm crocheting as many dish cloths as my hook will allow!

 

Sarah, Customer Service Bean, 1 year

I'm knitting a pair of vanilla socks for my boyfriend for Christmas. Well, they look more like stockings, because he's a men's 13 foot. I'm using ChiaoGoo 6" DPNs in a US 1 with the MJ Yarns Simple Sock, in the color Peacock. I've got one sock done. Here's hoping the other gets done in time!!

Shibui's Crete Scarf

This gorgeous scarf has swept us off of our feet! Knit in Shibui's limited edition color, Ember, this scarf is knit using 3 skeins of Birch and 1 skein of Lunar. The fluid drape of this bias-knit scarf is a graceful accent to any outfit! This pattern is free with purchase of this yarn.
