|Shibui Sock in "Peony"|
First up we have Shibui Sock yarn! We just started carrying this recently, and it’s awesome. It’s super hardwearing yet squishy soft and can be used for a variety of knits including socks, hats, scarves, baby knits, gloves, and much more. This splendidly superb yarn is spun from ultra fine super wash merino wool. You’ll also want to check out Shubui’s generous array of patterns and books to accompany their yarn -you’ll never cease to find knitspiration!
Next we have the new Interweave Knits-- Fall 2011! This edition features a slew of lovely cold weather knits. From the stunning cabled Cardiff Coat on the cover, to the draped Dahlia Cardigan, there is something for every knitter. One of my personal favorites is the tweedy Honeycomb Coat that is both stylish and cozy for those cold winter days. I love the asymmetrical button detail on the front as well as the cowl neck collar. Prepare to be inspired with this newest edition of Interweave!
Artyarns has taken their lovely beaded silk and sequined yarn to a whole new level by lightening it up just a bit. The result is an exquisitely beautiful and unique yarn! Artyarns has been pushing the borders of unique and luxury yarns for years, and this season they have completely outdone themselves. With 110 yards of luxury to play with, you’re sure to find something to create with Artyarns’ Beaded Silk and Sequins Light. And if the yarn itself isn’t enough to inspire, check out Artyarns’ website for tons of free patterns using their yarns. So many stunning designs!
Lastly, the Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky yarn has finally arrived! This squishy and slightly heavier version of Madelinetosh’s Vintage yarn is perfect for making sumptuously warm wintertime accessories. Available now in a full selection of Tosh’s gorgeous hand-dyed colors (with more arriving every week), this yarn knits up at 3.5-4 stitches per inch on US size 9 or 10 needles. In fact, I took home a skein of Filigree the day we received it, and have been working on a new slouch hat for this fall. With 165 yards per hank, you too are sure to be inspired by this delectably soft yarn!
So that is it for this week's Featured Products. I’ll be back next week with another Vlog, since we were able to film new videos today. Just a fun side note, we filmed our 1,000th video for the Jimmy Beans Wool website and Youtube channel today! We are so excited to have that many product reviews and instructional videos to share with you all! If there’s ever a product you’d like to see reviewed or a technique you’d like to learn, let us know and we’ll try to provide it for you!
Thanks again for tuning in this week. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Happy knitting and crocheting!
