Inside SweetGeorgia

Ever since our wedding in July 2011, I’ve been looking for a way to work with Jeff and Cat, our photographers, again. They took beautiful shots at our wedding and we loved their easy-going personalities and their warm, inviting aesthetic. I was delighted and inspired when I heard that Jeff and Cat were collaborating with…

Wedding, Captured

Thank you so much to all of you for your lovely and sweet comments on the wedding shawl and all your good wishes for the wedding. The little messages fluttered into my inbox in the last few days before the wedding and kept us positive, even as the weather looked threateningly ominous. It’s true, it…

I owe you.

I’m in Vancouver for another four nights and then I’m off again (this time to traipse around London). In the meantime, I owe you so many things starting with my photography presentation from WAY back in March… so here are the bits and pieces: * [download#1#size#nohits] * [The photos that accompanied the presentation (Quicktime |…

Prizes & the Photo Program

Sooo… let’s give away some yarn, shall we? My first stop is actually Fiji, so I figured, let’s give out prizes to the five commenters that said Fiji — [Dani](http://knittingsunshine.blogspot.com/), Liza, Cedar, [Elizabeth](http://yarn-over.blogspot.com/), and [Beth](http://www.biggeek.knitblog.com/)… Send me your snailmail addresses by email (info at sweetgeorgiayarns dot com) and I’ll send you some yarn. And the…

Hello Sunshine

OMFG, it’s sunny. I may actually decide to leave the house today. I _love_ living in Vancouver, but the winters here are so utterly depressing and grey. But this morning, it’s gloriously sunny and snowy with a big clear blue sky. In this situation, the only thing to do is to seize the opportunity and…

Yesterday

Procion MX on cotton warp Wow, what a way to start the week. I have good news! There’s a new yarn shop opening up in Vancouver called ["three bags full"](http://www.threebagsfull.ca/) at 4458 Main Street (between 28th and 29th Avenues)… and they will be the first shop in Vancouver to carry my hand dyed yarn and…

cameraphone malfunction

Okay. So the [Sam Roberts](http://www.samrobertsband.com/)/[BSS](http://www.arts-crafts.ca/bss/)/[The Stills](http://www.thestills.net/)/[Jets Overhead](http://www.jetsoverhead.com/) concert at Deer Lake Park yesterday was amazing. The weather was a perfect 25 degrees and sunny. Like [Venus](http://venusknits.blogspot.com) said, Sam Roberts live — amazing. Broken Social Scene live — also amazing. The fact that I didn’t get a sunburn or tan lines after spending six hours in…

Dancing, no knitting.

And here is where I dragged my sick body on Saturday evening. The first Grand Ball DanceSport competition to be held at the brand new Grand Ballroom in Richmond. There were competitors that travelled all the way from Italy and the UK to compete. Here are three of my favourite shots: Our friend, Faye, left…

Three cups of espresso later…

This is actually just coffee from the vending machine at school. This is the first piece of 4×5 film I’ve ever had developed, so this is pretty exciting. After a few “caustic jelly” experiences with Polaroid film, I think I’m ok with that too now. This Friday is the dessert demo!
