The Yarn Patch Proudly Presents…

Hello again, everyone! Today we have some sensational news to share with you.

You’re probably beginning to hear rumors about our upcoming 10th anniversary celebration. This week-long celebration will take place in the middle of June and will be packed with special events and dozens of daily prizes. We’ll continue to keep you updated on this HUGE event- make sure you’re signed up for the newsletter so you don’t miss anything! For now though, let’s talk about the exciting event we have planned for Saturday, June 18…

The Yarn Patch is hosting a book signing with Jennifer Wood of Wood House Knits, author of the new best seller in knitting Refined Knits: Sophisticated Lace, Cable, and Aran Lace Knitwear!

Jennifer Wood is a Tennessee designer with an eye for opulent textures and intricate details and with no fear of a challenge. When she learned to knit as an adult, she boldly tackled cables with her first project and went on to master lace. When Jennifer began designing and self publishing as Wood House Knits a few years later, the marriage of these two beloved techniques was irresistible- “like uniting strength and grace” (Refined Knits, p. 5).  Jennifer’s love for traditional techniques infuses her work with history and meaning, yet she puts them to use forging contemporary, wearable garments.

Jennifer’s signature style is evident in her recently released book, Refined Knits. This collection of garments and accessories exudes old-world elegance with just a touch of rock star glamour. Each design is feminine, flattering, and timeless- as The Yarn Patch’s own Susan has said, “There’s nothing in this book that I wouldn’t wear!”

The volume itself is a treat for the eye with full page, artful photography and sumptuous illustrations throughout. Each pattern is accompanied by captivating descriptions and thorough notes, making it easy to fall in love with the right project. All schematics, charts, and diagrams are crystal clear and generously detailed, and a comprehensive, well-illustrated glossary and techniques section makes this collection accessible to a wide range of skill levels (though we would recommend it primarily to intermediate knitters and on.)

Here at The Yarn Patch, Sheri has already taken the plunge and cast on the Maisie Cardigan included in Refined Knits. Top down seamless construction makes this garment easy to knit and flattering to wear, and the all-over aran lace stitch pattern shines when knit in a decadent hand-painted superwash merino such as Dream in Color Classy. If you’re drooling already, it’s about to get better- this project will be offered as a Knit Along! After you purchase your copy of Refined Knits, you can place a separate order for 3-5 skeins of Dream in Color Classy at 20% off! Then enjoy your project knowing you can reach out to us at any time for advice or assistance- we’ll even share our tips and tricks with you along the way!

      Hi Diane! Thanks for your question. The book is a Pre-Order, and the author, Jennifer Wood, will be here at The Yarn Patch to autograph them on June 18. Once they are signed, I will ship them out. In the meantime however, I will be sending out the information you need to order your yarn, like sizing, yardage needed, gauge, etc. The yarn color choices are already on our web store (13 colors to choose from!) so you can start looking at them. The yarn is Classy by Dream in Color. But don’t order yet! I will also be sending out a coupon code so you can get 20% off the yarn for anyone who also ordered the book(which you have). I’ll keep in touch, so watch for those emails – thanks Diane!
