Studio Sale Thank You!

Well, we were so happy to see those of you who came by the studio for our Spring Cleaning Sale this past Saturday! Thank you all for coming. We had not predicted the incredible turnout… in fact, Ashley (who did nearly all of the sorting, organizing, balloon-blowing, and sign-making!) kept worrying that people wouldn’t enjoy…

Studio Spring Cleaning Sale

We’ve never had a sale like this before! Our studio is absolutely packed full of yarn — everything from pristine new skeins to “unexpected dye pot surprises” and we need to clear out space for even more yarn in the coming months. AND we realize that many SweetGeorgia readers and knitters who aren’t located in…

Friday Five: Where in the World

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve managed to wrangle a few minutes to write a Friday post, but I have good reasons. One big reason is because I’ve been super busy with our spring launch! All the other reasons are here (looong, pent-up picture post to follow): Around the World in 80 Skeins Two…

Spring 2015 at SweetGeorgia

From our hands spring love. These words have been milling around in my mind for the past several months as we have been hard at work on creating colours and designing the patterns to go with our new colourways and yarns.

My brother and Annica are due in late April and we are all super excited for the baby to come. It took four months of planning, pinteresting, and crafting between a team of…

Unfortunately, happiness is NOT a warm bagel

Without being too overly dramatic, I am experiencing my version of the end of the world. A world that is devoid of eggs and cheese. Let me explain… For the past two years or so, somewhere in the middle of my pregnancy, I started to develop eczema. Probably something to do with hormones triggering something…

Friday Five: Good & Random

It might sound silly, but my mood seems directly tied to the effort I put into writing my Five Minute Journal. When I am too busy to make note of and remember the good things, they fall off the radar and I get myself all worked up into a ball of stress again. So yes,…

Kitterly Pattern Roundup

Have you met Kitterly yet? Sometime last year, I remember being on a call with Mari and Elizabeth as they told me all about their plans to launch this brand new website that couples patterns and yarns in the best possible way. We talked about how much work it is to sift through nearly 200,000…
