Grab Bags, New Yarn, and Mother's Day Gifts!

Mystery Grab Bags, Last Chance at Mother's Day, and a Tribute to May the Fourth!

Jimmy's Grab Bags

It's that time of year again...Our annual Mystery Grab Bag Extr-abag-anza is here! We've been hard at work, sifting through some of our favorites to create the magnificent, mysterious, merino-rific thing that is: The Grab Bag!! Available in 3 different weights, Fingering - 300g, DK/Sport - 300g, and Worsted - 400g, each bag banks you a pattern and notions (selected at random!), and the granddaddy of the baggie, YARN! Filled with some of our best sellers (hello, Malabrigo, Berroco, Cascade, Madelinetosh, and Lorna's!), you'll score at least one (likely two!) hand-dyed hank(s) of yarn.

Just think of us as your bestest fiber friend, making sure you snag the perfect yarn for that (__enter must-need-project-name here__). Get em' before they're gone!

Hedgehog Fibres Sock

WE SAY "NEW", YOU SAY "HEDGEHOG"! NEW ____________! NEW____________! We just got in our first shipment of Hedgehog Fibres Sock yarn and we are jumping for joy! Washable merino meets just a pinch of nylon in this ultra squishy, and sort-of stretchy yarn.

Revitalize your creative flow and peruse the newest hues (we're literally OBSESSED with them) with your choice of solids or speckles to suit your creative needs with the delightfully non-scratchy and extra soft Skinny Singles yarn.

New AND exclusive? You don't need to tell us twice! We've received some gorgeous, one of a kind kits that use three skeins of Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles to create a beautiful and luxurious fade for whatever your heart (or needles) desire. Don't let these colors fade (get it?) away without getting your hands on them because when they're gone, they're gone!

Brooklyn Tweed Pop Up Shop!

Heeeeeey we're knittin' here, we're knittin' here! You can take the Brooklyn Tweed out of Brooklyn but you can't take the Brooklyn out of Brooklyn Tweed! We're taking the brand back to their East Coast roots (they moved to Portland in 2015)! These kits came to us in a big yellow, checkered cab; we couldn't be more jazzed to share them with you! And if they can make it there, you can make them anywhere: from cowls, wraps, scarfs, and hats, each kit comes with a printed pattern, all the Loft yarn needed to complete your project, and is hand packed in a Brooklyn Dodger blue Brooklyn Tweed box!

These kits will only be around for a New York Minute, so be sure to get yours now!

Mother's Day is 9 Days Away!

Your mama's so fab... She deserves strings and beautiful things from Jimmy Beans! This year, celebrate all the amazing mothers in your life with the perfect Mother's Day gift, guaranteed to make you mom's favorite (finally!).

Flat Iron Shawl

Mother's Day calls for a yarn bouquet! We've partnered with the incredible Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts to offer 6 crochet bouquet kits!

Each comes with 3 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in a coordinating fade plus a hook and code to download her Flatiron Shawl pattern. Give Mom the gift of 'me time' this May! Knit kits available, too!


A new Just at Jimmy's box, inspired by the promise of spring and our love of knitting. Mom will fall for Joji Locatelli's 3-color Cashmere Cowl pattern, Malabrigo's Finito in 3 different color combinations, custom stitch markers, and a pair of circular needles. And for all the gardening glam-mas, these kits also include a small vase, a cute watering can, and a packet of forget-me-not seeds, to brighten up her home.

Craft Crate
Umbrella Swift

Give the maker mom in your life the gift of time with the Lacis Umbrella Swift (paired perfectly with the Stanwood Needlecraft Ball Winder!)! No more wrapping her favorite hank around her dining room chair, her husband's hands, or hunting down a handy piece of furniture! The Umbrella Swift provides precise tension when winding, creating firm cakes that don't unravel but loose enough balls that make pulling yarn a breeze. Let her have her cakes AND knit with them too!

Fuzzball Bandolier Shawl May 4th

Tomorrow just happens to be our favorite not-so-traditional holiday stemming from a galaxy far, far away. Lovingly inspired by a certain Fuzzball that is close to our hearts, we're relaunching our Fuzzball Bandolier Shawl! Each kit comes with one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in our exclusive color, aptly named RRWWWGG!, two solid Staccatos, one in Chocolate and one in Pewter, and the download code for the Fuzzball Bandolier Shawl pattern, designed by our very own Rachel Roden, of Unraveled Designs!

On a more somber note, as some of you may have heard, Peter Mayhew, the man behind our favorite fuzzball, passed away on Tuesday. So many of us Beans have been lifelong fans and to honor his legacy, we'll be donating 100% of the profits from our Bandolier kits and single skein RRWWWGG! purchases to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a charity that Mayhew's organization frequently supported! Goodbye, Chewie...

Sugar Bush Yarns! Month two begins soon and we'll be finishing up the body with the lacey loops started in month one! Eager to hook on??

Crochet Shell Stitch Baby Hat

Erika's Crochet Shell Stitch
Baby Hat With 3D Flower

Erika crocheted this adorable baby hat! We love how cute, cozy, and squishy it turned out! Wanting to add some flair, she added the flower herself (not included in the original pattern). Have a baby in your life? This is the perfect hat to keep their noggin' warm!
