       November Limited Edition: Caramel Pumpkin Latte  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Shepherd Sock Shepherd Worsted Shepherd Sport Helen's Lace
Honor Baby Me Boo Green Line Worsted Greenline DK

Caramel Pumpkin Latte - November's Limited Edition Color

(available in Shepherd Sock, Baby Me Boo, Shepherd Sport, Shepherd Worsted, Helen's Lace, Pearl, Honor, and Lion and Lamb.

We also have some Greenline Worsted and Greenline DK... NOW 50% OFF.

Fall and winter have the best seasonal coffee drinks of the year by far; eggnog lattes, peppermint mochas, chai cider... mmmmm, I'm getting a craving just thinking about it!

We at Jimmy Beans have found that specialty coffee drinks translate very well into limited edition colors (remember Peppermint Mocha? Now it's one of our regular Lorna's colors!). Knowing this, it seemed a no-brainer to create a Limited Edition Color after our favorite winter wake-up drink: Caramel Pumpkin Latte! Once a tasty treat only available from Starbucks, you can now knit socks, sweaters, or even a cozy for your coffee in this delicious color!

Caramel Pumpkin Latte is a scrumptious combination of warm bronze, rich brown, and deep pumpkinee orange that evokes images of fall foliage, Thanksgiving decorations and that oh, so savory espresso drink! Use a hank of the DK for a pair of Welted Fingerless Gloves, a classic pattern from Churchmouse, or a skein of the Shepherd Sock for a pair of stylin' toe warmers!

And don't forget, Lorna's is now dying a small amount of the Carmel Pumpkin Latte in Misti Alpaca's Baby Me Boo yarn. The silky shine and loose wind of Baby Me Boo looks absolutely stunning in the warm autumn hues of this November color, so make sure to grab a hank or two before its gone! Also new to the limited edition line up- Heel from Soak Wash! Get your Limited Edition tub of this feet-pleasing foot cream while it lasts :)

With so many hues to choose from, there is most definitely a color for everyone from Madelinetosh!

      Addi Clicks: Lace  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 

Lace Clicks are In!

Now that you have all of the amazing hand-dyed yarns, you're going to need some amazing needles to get knitting! After much anticipation the Addi Click Lace sets are now available! The Lace version of the extremely popular addi Clicks interchangeable needles use the same Click technology but are designed with shorter tips. This innovation allows the Click Lace tips to be used with shorter 16" and 20" cables making them perfect for smaller and more delicate projects! In order to maintain their highest standard of quality and a smooth, snag-less transition from tip to cord, the needle experts at addi have crafted the Click Lace tips using an electrostatic nickel plating process.

While the Lace Clicks are not made of the same brass as the regular addi Lace circular needles (which continue to be made with brass tips), they do feature the same long taper and fine point that works so well for sock and lace weight yarn projects. Each Click Lace set comes with 5 cords 16", 20", 24", 32" and 40" in length and needle tip sizes US 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. The addi Click Lace has truly exceeded all expectations and makes for an excellent addition to your arsenal of knitting needles for all projects in the works and the many more to come :)

Soak Wash Heel Accessories - '10 November - Caramel Pumpkin Latte
Soak Wash Heel - Caramel Pumpkin Latte

Feet often get overlooked in the pampering department. Trapped at the end of our legs, feet can be easy to forget about. It's not that we don't love our feet, but we often take them for granted. That's why the folks at Soak Wash created Heel - an all natural foot cream that keeps your feet hydrated, healthy, and happy! As things get busy this holiday season, make sure to let your feet know you appreciate them with a tub of Heel. For feet that have gone the extra mile, consider a tub of Limited Edition Heel -this month's is Caramel Pumpkin Latte!

Rich, marled and self-striping colorways in signature Noro style makes Kogarashi a one-of-a-kind yarn you won't want to stop working with. A bulky weight silk and wool blend, Kogarashi knits up quickly on size US 10 needles.
