Do I ever have some good news for you.
It’s here. The book is here.
Did I not tell you about the book?
Well, our tenth anniversary book (Perfect Ten) is now available for pre-order! We got current and past staff together and came up with 16 incredible designs that we think you’re going to love.
I’ll get the paperwork out of the way now. You can pre-order the book online or in-store for $27.95. At the launch on December 5th, the price will go up to $29.95 (so pre-order while you can).
Speaking of the book launch… You’re all invited! December 5th, 2014. 7-9pm at Urban Yarns in Pt Grey. There will be goodies and surprises, and you can schmooze with the designers – hope to see you there!
“This book was born from our wish to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Urban Yarns by highlighting the incredible creativity and talent of some of our staff and instructors including Sylvannah Baugh, Sandra Dunkin, Anina Hansen, Ruth Hawke, Karen Holden, Alison Holley, Amanda Kaffka, Sylvie Lui, Deanna Krushinsky, Cheryl Niamath, Julia Sharpe & Michael Wynne.
The designs in this book represent an amazing compilation of fun and stylish patterns, ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced. Interspersed among the patterns you will find some great stories from Urban Yarns’ customers. To make the knitting experience even more enjoyable, each designer has recommended special drinks to pair with their creations.
All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Mekong Blue, a weaving and training centre in Cambodia.”
