Reno/Tahoe locals: Our second Sip & Shop the Warehouse event is coming up!


It's that time of the month again and we are so happy to host another monthly Sip & Shop the Warehouse event for our amazing local customers!


We had so much fun with our first-ever Sip & Shop the Warehouse event last month that we decided to make this a monthly event every third Thursday for our Reno/Tahoe friends to enjoy with us.

Join us this Thursday (June 15th) from 5-8pm for a night filled with tasty refreshments, an exclusive shopping experience, special in-store discounts and a raffle, knitting, and so much yarn that you won't even know how to contain yourself! Plus we just received a brand new shipment of stunning Madelinetosh Onesies in every base, and you will get first-pick of these yarns before everyone else online!

Grab some friends and get in on the action - we can't wait to see you here ♥

Winter is...here! Gear up for the "Beyond the Wall" MKAL


Look out, the storm is coming! We think it's safe to say that winter is most definitely here!

In this video, we introduce designer Rachel Roden, who will be hosting her very own "Beyond the Wall" MKAL next month on Ravelry!


Let's get down to the [k]nitty-gritty for this Beyond the Wall MKAL:
  • Who: Jimmy Beans Wool, designer Rachel Roden, Lorna's Laces, and of course, YOU!

  • What: A mystery knit-along dedicated to the newest season of Game of Thrones

  • When: Begins July 16th, four clues total will be released (one per week for four weeks)

  • Where to buy the yarn: MKAL kits available here!

  • Where to buy the pattern: Rachel's pattern available here!

Something crazy is about to unleash up North! In anticipation of the seventh season of Game of Thrones we've teamed up with our friends at Lorna's Laces to create Beyond the Wall, a custom color inspired by the mysterious and icy-cold demeanor of the White Walkers. Designer Rachel Roden is counting down the days to the season's premiere and can't wait to share this MKAL with you all!

In the spirit of an MKAL, we can't leak too many details about the project to keep the suspense brewing. However, we can tell you that the project is a shawl, and Rachel's shawl designs never disappoint! 

Won't you join us as we venture up north Beyond the Wall?


XOXO,

Jimmy & the Beans
