      LLE - Beauty and the Beast!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
Beauty Collage

Bonjour! Disney fans or no, we hope you'll "be our guest" for the reveal of the February LLE: Tale as Old as Time! Inspired by the colors of the vintage Beauty and the Beast movie, Lorna's created this medley of twilight purples, enchanted-rose pink, and ball-gown gold to commemorate the new live-action movie, premiering March 17th!

Belles and Bobbles Collage
Maybe it's the smart female lead, maybe it's the magic of transformation, maybe it's the music - whatever it is, we can't wait! And before we go, we're casting on for Monika's Belles and Bobbles Scarflette: with eyelets, tiny bobbles, and a picot edge, it's full of flair and flights of fancy, just like its namesake! And, it takes just one skein of Shepherd Sock, so you can be finished and flitting about with it on your neck on your way to the premiere! Best of all, you can snag the pattern for just $2 during the month of February in celebration of the movie release and this fantastic LLE colorway!

Hidden Twist Collage
Jenny also gleamed inspiration from the gorgeous hues of this month's colorway and decided to use it in her first brioche project! She quickly knit up a Hidden Twist Hat (designed by our own Christopher Salas) using 2 skeins of Shepherd Worsted - one in Tale as Old as Time and one in Butterscotch.

Now, pick up a skein of your favorite Lorna's yarn, your favorite library book, and prove there's more than this provincial life: knit or crochet something amazing!

      A Knit-Along with Mrs. Crosby!

Mrs. Crosby Kal Collage

You know how Mrs. Crosby likes to travel, and we'd all love to go with her, but we've got the next best thing: a Knit-Along! Hosted by designer Talitha Kuomi (author of Voyages of Vivian), the KAL will start March 1st on Ravelry and use just one skein of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box yarn in a special shade called Cloverleaf, dyed just for the KAL, to make a gorgeous hat! Pick up a hank of Cloverleaf and get ready to join the fun on March 1st!

      January Big Beanie Bag Reveal  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
Big Beanie Bag Shawl

We kicked the year off to a grand start with our January Big Beanie Bags! This was our first time trying out a "progressive" project designed to stretch out over 3 months, and we're thrilled with the results: Jeanne's Textures of Nevada Shawl is shaping up quite nicely! The January bag contained generous samples of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine, Anzula Squishy, and Cascade Heritage Silk, along with Knitter's Pride stitch markers and circular needle protectors to keep your project (and needle tips!) safe, a packet of Soak Handmaid lotion, and a pretty drawstring project bag!
Circular Needle Protector
The circular needle protectors from Knitter's Pride are new to the market which means we had a lot of inquisitive folks asking how this tube contraption works! Simply stick both points of your circular needle into the slot of the rubber cap located on one end of the tube and Voila! Your needle points and joins are now safe from any damage that could occur while jostling around in your project bag, and your knitting is completely secured! No more dropped stitches!

We hope you love your project so far - don't forget to visit the January Big Beanie Bags Forum on our JBW Ravelry Group to share progress photos and chat about what might be coming up for the second part of the shawl!

Free Ship Feb. Collage
Many of you know that January was a tumultuous time at the warehouse: the weather here in Reno upended all of our operations when we experienced record precipitation and flooding that no sandbag could keep out! Luckily, with the help of our intrepid JBW team (and some very friendly locals!), we were able to pack up most of the yarn into a fleet of U-Hauls, drive it to a safe location, and then wait out the worst of it (read about the whole ordeal over on the JBW Blog!).
Free Ship Collage
The Bad News: warehouse operations (including shipping orders and customer service requests) were put on hold temporarily.

The Good News: we are back up and running, phones are working again, and we're shipping orders faster than a fleet of cheetahs to get caught up!

The Great News: we've moved to a new location out of the reach of future flooding, so we shouldn't have to experience this type of interruption (and hair loss due to stress) again! Come check us out when our retail shop re-opens, hopefully in early March! 4850 Joule Street Suite A1, Reno, NV 89502.
We'd like to send a HUGE thank-you to everybody for their help, moral support, and most importantly, patience during this extremely difficult time for the JBW family and business. And because we want to put our money where our mouth is, so to speak, we're offering FREE SHIPPING on every USPS order, domestic and international, for the entire month of February*! That's right - you order it, we'll ship it for free**! Think of it as a little handshake (or hug!) through the mail, from us to you. You deserve it! And, you can spread the word to all of your yarn-loving friends with the hashtags #savetheyarn and #freeshipfeb!

*UPS or express shipping not included

**Depending on number of orders, we may not be able to combine orders during this time
