Happy Mother's Day

In appreciation of and inspired by all the crazy amazing things mother's do to enrich our lives, we've created one of a kind yarn bouquets to gift mom some much deserved 'me time' this May! With two crochet and two knit bouquets to pick from, whatever craft mom creates, we've got fiber florals for that! Shower her in stitches with the gorgeous crochet Urban Reflection Wrap from BreeAnna Laub of String with Style or with our newest bouquet, the Flatiron Shawl from Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts (a dreamy crocheted fade). If needles are more her niche, knitting mamas will love the ever classic Andrea Mowry Free Your Fade bouquet or the majestic Suburban Wrap from Joji Locatelli. All bouquets include a pattern, yarn, needles or hooks, and a decorative vase. Flowers are nice, but fiber flowers? Even better!

Magie Fibers

Hailing from the sweetest little city of Frederick, Maryland, we are thrilled to welcome Magpie Fibers' Swanky Sock and Swanky DK to our Biggest Little City shop! The luxurious blend of Merino, Cashmere, and Nylon has a gorgeous sheen and excellent stitch definition, with crazy beautiful colors to swoon!

Our Bean, Miranda, was so inspired by the vibrant, dragon-esque tones of Swanky DK Smoke and Mirrors, she created "Tail of the Dragon", a one skein, crocheted scarf!

Game of Thrones The Shawl of Ice and Fire MKAL
The Shawl Of Ice and Fire Progress Photo

We are halfway through the Shawl of Ice and Fire MKAL, and the gorgeous mosaic color work featured in the second clue was too beautiful not to share! Shawl designer, Rachel Roden, used each of the contrast colors from the Lorna's Laces String Quintet, inspired by the colors of the main families on Game of Thrones, to create lovely little rows of crowns. They are formed using mosaic color work which is super fun, and a little addictive... each row leaves you saying "just one more!" If you are new to mosaic color work, this pattern is a great intro to the technique. We don't know who will win the iron throne, but this knit will definitely keep you entertained along the way!


It's not too late to join in! There are 2 clues left, and we still have Lorna's Laces kits featuring the splattershot string quintet inspired by the previous MKAL colors. Grab one of these limited edition kits before they are gone!

Don't forget, we created a spoiler page for those who want to see photos of the completed shawl before diving in!

Shipping Prices Increase May 1st!

We shared with you last month that Jimmy Beans turns 17 next month (can you even believe it?!). And, in our 16+ years of business, we've only ever had one US shipping price - $4 on orders less than $75.

This is all to say that, as we've grown and changed over the years, so has the world of shipping. And so, we're sending you a friendly reminder that starting next Wednesday, May 1, 2019 our US shipping price will adjust to $5 on orders less than $75. You have a full four days to get your orders in at the original $4 price! Or, you can continue to order $75+ worth of crafty goods and get your US shipping completely free :). Thank you all so much for being on this journey with us!
