1,000 Videos! (And our Artyarns winner!)

Hello everyone!
Over the last couple of years Jimmy Beans Wool has been slowly creating a variety of videos for your viewing pleasure! This summer, we decided to get a little more serious about the videos (but not serious IN the videos, as you know if you've seen this one!) and really tried to provide you with all the product reviews and instructional videos you might need. We think we've succeeded!


Over the last few months we've been filming regularly to reach our goal of 1,000 useful product reviews and helpful instructional videos, and last week we hit it!  We've now filmed 1,011 videos and the final few will be up on our Youtube Channel and the JBW website soon!


What a team effort it was! Almost all the beans did their part and helped make some videos. Did you see this one with Erika and Nicole reviewing Berroco Vintage? Or how about this one with Amber and Erika showing off their Amigurumi Toy Box? And how fantastalicious is Leanne here in her ruffle mania? I mean, even I wanted to knit with ruffles after seeing this!!


We couldn't have reached our goal with out these two wonderful knitters, Jeanne and Kristen! They have spearheaded this project and have done a spectacular job!! Not only are they responsible for all of the back end organization, planning and set up, but they also did the lion's share of the filming! And if you've ever done filming, you know that it really takes a lot of energy and excitement!! We are so honored to have these knowledgable and spunky women in our family. Check out this video of them teaching us how to customize your project by modifying gauge and stitch patterns!


                        


What we want to know is- what videos are we missing? Is there a stitch you wish we'd do an instructional video about? Is there a product you'd like to hear about from experienced knitters before buying it? Let us know and we'd LOVE to make a video for you!!


Oh! I wouldn't leave you hanging without announcing the winner for the Artyarns "Shawl for all Seasons" giveaway. :) The winner (thanks to www.random.org for picking our random number!) is

Thanks again everyone and happy video watching!

Love the videos. I am still very new to knitting and I the videos are so great. There is no other place like Jimmy Bean's. YOu guys are awesome. I was looking for a video that shows how to cast onto the edge of your work. I am in the middle of knitting the wispy cardigan by knitbot. Awesome pattern and I look forward to learning new things. Thank you for being so helpful. Keep them coming.
