This past Saturday Jimmy Beans Wool had the maiden voyage of their Biggest Little Bus Tour. However, being that I’m local-ish to Reno I have no need to take the bus. Luckily for all of us locals Jimmy Beans offered the class, tour, and meet & greet all on their own.
It was the first time I had been back to Jimmy Beans since their move due to all of the flooding this Winter. I really love how they have everything organized with separate rooms for Madelinetosh, Berroco, and Lorna’s Laces. They even have a dedicated needle room with needles galore!
We got to tour the warehouse, and shop from the back room too. Although, I came home with only the yarn I had dyed because I was in the middle of a color crisis. I want to cast on a new cardigan, but I just couldn’t decide on a color. Sigh. I still haven’t made up my mind either.
The class was so much fun. It’s the first time I have ever taken a yarn related class of any kind. Rachel Roden taught the dyeing class and she was so nice and informative. I had no idea how simple it would be.
And my finished yarn…
Designer Romi Hill was there as well and she was talking and showing people around. I barely managed a hello, but she too was lovely. I can be terribly shy sometimes, but honestly I think I was just really star struck. All in all, it was a lovely day and I’m so glad that I went. I hope to do it again when they have more events like this.
