We have made some changes to the online ordering system. Now, when you place an order online, in the store, or over the phone, you can set up a personalized account!

Why create an account? These account features have already been added:

  • You can create an account to store your address and preferred payment information so you don't have to enter it every time you order.
  • Can't remember what color you bought? You can login online and see every purchase and return you've made!
  • You will be able to sign up for our quarterly newsletter -- at least it's sort of quarterly -- depending on how busy it is!
  • View your previous orders and order status online (if an account is opened with an email address).
  • We will offer discounts for our account holding customers. - coming soon!

You can view some of my new projects here.

We have more discontinued yarns! These are yarns discontinued by our suppliers, so we’ve received a discount –, which we are happy to be able to pass along to you! Because these yarns are discontinued, there are no returns or exchanges, but you can’t beat the prices!

Jaeger has discontinued several of their luxurious and highly coveted yarns Cashair, Chamonix, and Luxury Tweed. Cashair is a super soft lightweight cashmere blended with merino wool available in seven neutral, earthy colors. Regularly this yarn sells for $19.95 per ball, but we are happy to be able to offer it at the discounted price of $14.95 per ball! Chamonix is merino wool and angora with just a hint of polyamide, available in 13 colors. Normally $14.95 per ball, now $11.25. And Luxury Tweed is a blend of merino wool and alpaca available in 16 fabulous tweedy colors. Regularly $8.50, now only $6.50!!

Noro has discontinued their lightweight, airy summer yarn - Airisu. It comes in 5 colors, each of which is a white boucle-ish cotton strand twisted together with a silky multi-colored strand. It's gorgeous and great for summer scarves and shells!!!! This yarn is normally $11.00, but it can be yours for the low, low price of $7.50 a ball :)

Gedifra has discontinued their summer-weight yarn - Mauritius. This yarn is a cotton tape with thick eyelash strands, and it's available here in 5 delightful colors.

Mauritius normally $12.95, now on sale for $9.75

We've been able to get more of the Rowanspun Yarns - and also got the 4Ply. Usually

The Rowanspun Chunky is normally $12.95, but is on sale for $9.75

The Rowanspun DK is normally $7.95, but is on sale for $5.95

GGH has discontinued 2 of their yarns - Carneval and Modena and we've purchased all that they have left!

Carneval is a very popular spring and summer yarn and works up beautifully by itself or with Cleo or Apart. Regular price is $12.95, but we'll sell it for $9.75 until we run out! Check out a picture of this scarf!

Modena comes in a ton of colors... is machine washable and very soft. Normally $9.80, we have it on sale for $7.25 a ball. We made a children's poncho with it!


We have tons of classes running every week - knitting and crocheting. Elizabeth is teaching the knitting classes during the day and night - and offers a one day scarf workshop every sunday. If you are interested in these classes, or would like to be notified by group email (other than the occasional newsletter) when new classes are to be offered, please send me an email with "Add to Class List" in the subject line to

Remember that all of our discontinued yarns are in Reno, so make sure to ask if you'd like to see some of them in person - or would like to get a great deal on your next project!

Please welcome Stacie to the Reno store - you'll find her smiling face there Monday through Friday. She's often answering the phone and helping with the E-commerce orders. She's learing how to knit right now - so feel free to ask her questions and give her quizzes!

As ever, Allison is there to answer your knitting questions, help you pick yarns and patterns, and she can usually figure out some of those crochet questions. Don't hesitate to call if you can't stop by!
Happy knitting!

**Jimmy Beans Wool is located in the Smithridge Center at the corner of S. Virginia and McCarran, near Toys R Us.  We're open 10 - 6, Monday thru Friday, 10-5 Saturday and on Sunday from 11 - 4.


We have several really beautiful new yarns in... just in time for summer knitting!

There is a super soft worsted weight cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas. Just like the Blue Sky Organic Cotton, so if you have worked with that and liked it, you'll definitely want to check out Blue Sky Cotton in a rainbow of beautiful colors.

If you're looking for something in a sport weight, be sure to check out Blue Sky 100% Alpaca. Lots of great vibrant colors at a really great price... only $7.75 per hank.

And we have just received several great new yarns from Rowan. There's the cotton rope in eight fun summer colors... plus the cotton rope collection pattern book, if you need some extra inspiration.
Rowan has also come out with a new machine washable line of Cashmere Blends - Cashsoft and Cashcotton. We love these yarns for baby items and as a substitute for the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino line.
