About the Author
Inveterate knitters since college, Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs left their respective careers in the medical and legal worlds to assume ownership of the Yarn Company, New York City’s landmark knitting store, in 1997. The store has become a destination for celebrities and locals alike, who come for the quickly sold-out classes, unrivaled yarn selection, customized knitting patterns, and friendly conversation. Julie and Jordana live in New York City. They are the authors of The Yarn Girls’ Guide to Simple Knits, The Yarn Girls’ Guide to Kid Knits, and The Yarn Girls’ Guide to Beyond the Basics.
