Meet Your Shawl Club Fiber Friend: Aimée Hansen

 






As we begin the new year, we are thrilled to introduce Aimée Hansen, a member of the Jimmy Beans Wool team and also our Clubs Community Manager. 

Aimée will be your fiber friend and stitch tutorial teacher for the much-awaited 2024 Shawl Club! She will be guiding you through various stitches, textures, and crafting experiences throughout the year! 





Aimée at a Glance: 

Aimée Hansen is more than just the Jimmy Beans Wool Clubs Community Manager - she's a dedicated yarn enthusiast since 1999, who seamlessly navigates between crochet and knitting, and has mastered various stitches for both crafts. With years of experience and a passion for helping others learn knitting and crocheting, Aimee brings kindness and fun to every project!




Tutorial Focus:


Q: What types of tutorials can we expect for the upcoming Shawl and Blanket Clubs?

This year’s Shawl Club patterns are full of adventure! In our tutorials, we’ll work through both the colorwork techniques needed as well as how to achieve the unique shaping both the crochet and knit shawls have.



















Q: Are there specific techniques or stitches you're excited to teach?

I am totally smitten with the shape of these shawls! I can’t wait to teach everyone how to work the stitches to create these fun, angular shapes (I promise…it’s much easier than it may look!).














Club Favorites:






Q: As a maker, what do you both love most about the Shawl Club?

One of my favorite things about the Shawl Club is how each month is just a bite-size piece of the entire
project. Each month, we receive 2 - 90 yd. mini skeins of the amazing Oh So Fine by Hedgehog Fibres to stitch with, and all we have to complete is this little bit of the larger project. It’s just the right amount for a little stitching me-time!













Q: What are you most excited about in the upcoming Clubs?

A new yarn base from a most fabulous dyer PLUS fun patterns from Melissa Leapman and Deanne Ramsay?! There is absolutely everything to be excited about!! Plus, we’re doing something a little different this time and working the shawl up over 6 months instead of 12 months, so we’ll be finished in time to throw these shawls over our shoulders this summer.



Yarn Selection:





Q: Can you give us a glimpse into the kind of yarn we can expect in the upcoming projects?



We are going to be crocheting and knitting with a brand-new base from Hedgehog Fibres: Oh So Fine! This luscious and super soft yarn is 100% merino wool, 2-ply, and a light fingering weight that’s perfect for making shawls. Our friends at Hedgehog Fibres have dyed up some of our favourite colorways along with a few exclusive colors just for our Shawl Club!








What can members look forward to?

With this year’s shawl club, I’ll be guiding members along the way with video tutorials that cover how to work through the stitch patterns, especially the ones that benefit from a demonstration. Together, we’ll work through the colorwork and shaping techniques through our video tutorials as well as cheer one another on through our Facebook and Ravelry groups. We’ll all be stitching together!

Aimée's Tips for Success: 

(1) If you need a little extra help or support along the way, just ask! That’s what our community groups on Facebook and Ravelry are for, and you can always ping me directly if you need an extra hand.

(2) Stitch markers are always our friends! If there are stitch repeats you need help remembering or need help finding the first and last stitches of a row, have a few different colored stitch markers on hand.

(3) Take your time and enjoy every stitch! If you have a busy month or two where you’re not caught up by the time the next skeins arrive, don’t sweat it. Your yarn will be there when you’re ready to dive back in, and our community will have your back along the way!

  17. The review for the badger-cam at Painshill Park requires additional details about the user's experience. Questions include watching the badger-cam, expectations, video quality, and recommendations. The review will be tailored to the user's specific experience and time zone differences. The badger-cam is located in the UK, so it may not be easily accessible due to time zone differences and internet restrictions.

  18. I’m so glad to see Aimee is a part of this team. I am familiar with Aimee from another company where I had a subscription and I really liked her videos. It felt like she was a support for the projects in the boxes as well as someone who was telling us what to expect with the reveal.
    I have been so tempted to join the shawl club. Aimee makes it even more enticing. Getting help on stitches and techniques will be so exciting and helpful for trying out some new color work.

  19. These are the types of games that can be found at basketball legends. To the fullest extent possible, do it. Before engaging in activities of that nature, individuals must to be subjected to psychological evaluations. People who have a psychological make-up that is too unstable should not participate in such a game. Life is too valuable to throw away just because you came in second place in a competition.
