Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
      Welcome to Knitspiration!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
Welcome to our first edition of Knitspiration, a photo-packed mini-newsletter designed to get you fired up about creating and ready to tackle that next project! Take a look at some of the things that are inspiring us this month!

Coffee and donuts, peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots, milk and cookies: some things just go together (or, we're just really hungry!)! This month's Knitspiration is all about techniques that complement each other - specifically, stripes and slipped stitches! Both can result in aesthetics from classic to modern, but together, they're a new class of cool! They look great together in everything from shawls to hats (and more!) and even our resident experimenters (and designers extraordinaire) Chris Salas and Rachel Roden have put them to work making all kinds of projects look amazing!

Which is your favorite?
