SWEETGEORGIA VOL 2

LOOKBOOK


Winter peeks her quiet face around the corner, signaling the heartening need for warmth, coziness, and community. Her cold presence lingering outside is exactly the inspiration I yearn for and I find myself immersed in the creative outlet of crafting small gifts for those I love. It's simple, peaceful, and wholly renewing to sink into the colourful delights of yarn. Stitch by stitch, love, generosity, and goodness guide and envelope me. Pair this with the gentle sentiments of the season, like sweet goods in the oven, twinkling lights, and crisp cold reddening my cheeks, and I am both soothed and delighted. We hope the beautiful patterns in our Holidays with SweetGeorgia Collection fill you with that same sense of wonder. These gorgeous little accessories knit up quickly and are perfect for gift-giving. With each joyful stitch, each simple act of "making," we hope that you are warmed and comforted as winter carries on outside. #sweetgeorgiayarns

CATHEDRAL GROVE by Moira Engel // knit in Superwash Wrosted

Rich lace in bold colours are enough to captivate, but when knit in our luxuriously warm Superwash Worsted, the results are positively sumptuous. The construction remains simple, allowing the hue and stitches to remain the focus. It's an accessory you'll want to knit over and over again.

MARRON by Madeleine Windsor // knit in Tough Love Sock

Playful and bold, Marron is a gorgeous shawl that makes the most of our Party of Five gradient sets. Gentle waves of dropped yarn overs pair beautifully with the triangular line of the silhouette for an accessory that captivates from start to finish.

GIMLI PEAK by Jessie Ksanznak // knit in Tough Love Sock

Inspired by the steep layers and ridges of Gimli Peak in British Columbia, this cowl uses stripes of bold colour and texture to pay homage the gorgeous scenery surrounding this rock. Our Party of Five sets enhance the interplay of texture and hue. This cowl is deliciously warm, bright, and playful.
