You’re Killing Me, Jimmy Beans!

In case you are unaware, Jimmy Beans Wool is killing me.

Six skeins in “Cookie’s Deep Dark Secret.” Damn it.

In case you are unaware, for the past couple months they’ve had Lorna’s Laces Green Line DK and Worsted on sale for half price. I am clearly very well aware of this fact.

In case you are unaware, every week they get new colorways of Lorna’s Laces Green Line, and every week they put up those new colorways at the same discounted price. I am very well aware of this fact as well.

One skein in “Denim.” I am so weak.

In case you are unaware, Lorna’s Laces Green Line—particularly the Worsted variety, with which I have grown quite familiar—is a deliciously soft and beautiful organic merino. So soft, in fact, that I can wear it against my skin. My skin is only a fan of the finest of wools.

In case you are unaware, I have absolutely no willpower. Especially when it comes to the discovery of a wool that I can actually wear. That is put up in 210-yard hanks, just perfect for economy sweater knitting.

One skein in “Chocolate.” Why must you be so delicious?

In case you are unaware, that sweater quantity in the colorway “Cookie’s Deep Dark Secret” is destined to become a Tea Leaves Cardigan (Rav link) in the very near future.

And the skein of “Denim” and the skein of “Chocolate” are destined to be combined to create one (maybe two, if yardage allows) Lallans hat (Rav link).

Five skeins in “Bold Red.” I have a serious problem.

And this sweater quantity in “Bold Red”—while not particularly bold in-person but still particularly pretty—will soon become a February Fitted Pullover (Rav link).

And the ten skeins of “Ysolda Red” that are now on their way to my house will likely become a Military Cardigan (Rav link), a pattern I’ve been jonesing to knit for a really long time.

In case you are unaware, it’s a really good thing I don’t think I could pull off a sweater in the “Berry” colorway, because I’d be all over that if I thought for one minute that I could.

In case you are unaware, I’m a sick, sick person. Totally addicted. And it’s all Lorna and Jimmy Bean’s fault.

    I’m going to pretend that I didn’t see this post though… cause I do NOT need more yarn!

  5. […] Jacie, I’m calling on you to be an enforcer (not that you’ve been a good influence lately […]
