Yarn of the Brave, Wool of the Free! It's Liberty!

American Pride

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and we've got just the thing to add some patriotic pizazz to your needles! 100% sourced, processed and dyed in the USA, it's the yarn of the brave, the wool of the free... also known as "Liberty!" Exclusively dyed by Swans Island on 100 gram skeins of All American Sport, this red, white and blue colorway is sure to kick your spirits into high gear.

Sourced from fine Rambouillet wool from ranches in the western United States and processed at the oldest woolen-spun mill in New England, this lofty two-ply yarn is an American version of traditional Shetland yarns, hand-dyed to perfection in Swans Island's Maine dye house. Needles to say (haha, see what we did there?), we got straight to knitting with this yarn as soon as it arrived! And, one of our fellow Beans, Lauren, is even knitting a garland to donate to our local VA. Check it out!

Summer Sale Continues into Week Two!

Holy Ship: The Saga Continues...

The overstocked Summer Sale (Sail?) continues! Each week for the next 7 weeks, we'll be selecting 4 brands we love and putting huge chunks of them on sale for 25-60% off!

Captain's Log. Position, South Pacific. Big Bad Woolbeard and his crew of miscreant pirates are fast approaching, eager to plunder our supplies. It's rumoured he has quite the sweet tooth (literally, just one tooth) for Delicious Yarns, and it's been said in the taverns that he's also 'loco for Berroco'. In an effort to divert him, we're offloading Big Bad Wool, Delicious Yarns, and Berroco, in addition to a selection of yarns from Coopknits, all 25-60% off. Hopefully this strategic maneuver keeps him at bay...

For our favorite Ravelry finds this week, we have the Latitude Pullover by Elizabeth Doherty!

Jessica spotted the Latitude pullover on Ravelry's Hot Right Now and then again while browsing our #StashRewind hashtag on Instagram! She fell in love with the casual, transeasonal look of this striped pullover and knew just what she'd pair it with - Shibui Knits Staccato! Which of her two favorite color pairings would you choose?

Meet a Bean!

Ever wonder about the Beans behind the yarn? The Beans that pull your orders, answer your phone calls, and ship your Beanie Bags? This week, we introduce you to Lauren!

Lauren The Bean

Q: What do you do at Jimmy Beans?

Q: What is your favorite 4th of July memory?
Watching fireworks at Lake Tahoe

Q: Hamburgers or hot dogs?

Q: If you could design your own yarn colorway, what color(s) would you use and what would you call it?
A variegated deep blue, that looks like the sun hitting the water. "Tahoe". Can you tell it's one of my favorite places?

Q: What is your Hogwarts House and Patronus?
My Hogwarts House is Hufflepuff and my Patronus is a stag.

Q: Finally, what shawl are you wearing?
I'm wearing the Kallara Shawl by Ambah O'Brien, knit with the Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles yarn from our Mother's Day Yarn Bowl!

Sarah's Muileata Shawl

Sarah's Muileata Shawl

Sarah knit this beautiful shawl (a free pattern on Ravelry!) to cozy up in during her brother's upcoming late summer wedding. We love its beautiful shape, perfect for draping over your shoulders, and its lovely lace pattern with shining Miyuki beads. Sarah used HiKoo Sueno, which unfortunately we no longer carry. We think Berroco Quechua would make a great alternative, though, as it's the same weight and features the same soft sheen!
