Reno, Nevada -- February 18, 2020 - Jimmy Beans SmartStix collection just got a little bit smarter with their latest product release and it is absolutely genius. The Jimmy Beans SmartStix Deluxe Wooden Interchangeable Needle Set comes with 9 pairs of laminated birchwood tips in US sizes 4 -11, 4 cords in 20, 24, 32, 40 inches, end stoppers, and cord keys. What makes these knitting needles so dang smart are they are marked at one inch intervals on the needles and the cords, turning them into a tape measure, perfect for checking gauge, wraps of whatever is on your needles.
"Invented by Laura Zander, aka 'Jimmy' and Jimmy Beans General Manager, Shannon Kimbrel explains,"We were on a trip to India and Laura forgot her tape measure. Luckily I had a sharpie and Laura's phone had a ruler app on it. I made one inch marks on her knitting needles and Smartstix was born. Sometimes it is the simplest inventions that make an innovative product."
The deluxe set comes rolled up in a custom dellaQ linen needlecase with a small, removable zipper pouch on one end, perfect for storing all those extra notions and odds and ends. This case folds in quarters and closes securely with an elastic. A resourceful zip pocket on the side stores your connectors or tools.
Jimmy Beans SmartStix Deluxe Wooden Interchangeable Needle Set is $165 and sold exclusively at Jimmy Beans retail store in Reno, NV and at www.JimmyBeansWool.com.
About Jimmy Beans Wool: At the downturn of the dotcom boom, former Silicon Valley engineers Laura and Doug Zander moved to the mountains and opened up a tiny yarn shop in Truckee, California. Jimmy, as Laura is lovingly known, sold coffee alongside the wool (hence the Beans in the name) and Jimmy Beans Wool was born. In 2004, the company settled down in Reno, Nevada where they currently reside today. They occupy an expansive 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse, are considered one of the country's leading destination yarn shops, employ 35 team members, and have built a loyal following and impressive online presence. Along with yarn, Jimmy Beans also provides consumers the most innovative crafting products and accessories, recently acquiring Namaste and della Q, two beloved companies amongst knitters, crocheters, and makers. Both companies sell popular designer handbags, project totes, organizers, accessories, and more. Jimmy Beans will continue to develop products under their patent pending Jimmy's SmartStix, plus hooks, needles, and notions.
