simple joy As the cold months approach at the end of the year, it isn’t so much the holidays I think of, but rather the craving for simplicity that the season invokes. My heart yearns to lean into those quiet moments between the busy ones, snagging those sweet chances for easy knitting and soft stillness. More and more, I find myself knitting late into the evenings, losing myself in the meditative lull of my knitting needles. Those rhythmic clicks remind me to slow down, re-discovering peace and unity as I craft for my family and friends. Restoring the inner wellspring of contentment with cozy patterns. With loving community. With creative outlets. Knitting lets us dig deep into the very essence of

the season: giving, unity, peace, and goodwill to all. The beautiful accessories in our special holiday collection are utterly soft, sweetly gratifying, and perfect for gift-giving. Modeled by some of the women from our SweetGeorgia team and designed by a few of our favourite designers, these easy shawls, warm cowls, and cozy hats invite you into effortless texture, gorgeous stitches, and decadent comfort from cast-on to gift wrapped. May the spirit of the season, and all the knitting it contains, bring you peace, comfort, and utterly simple joy. Happy Holidays from our family to yours. #sweetgeorgiayarns

thankful f

It’s been nearly ten years since I was given the guidance to dream big and envision what SweetGeorgia would look like in December. So each year, I think and plan, meditate and dream about what the year will bring for SweetGeorgia and how we as a collection of knitters, makers, colour lovers, and fibre arts aficionados will be at the holiday season. How much will we have changed? How much will we have grown? Together and as individuals?

This year, my heart could not be more full, seeing how warmly and beautifully each person on our team inspires, collaborates, and enables others. Over the years, our SweetGeorgia family has evolved to become a place of simple joys and encouragement. For this holiday collection, I really wanted the opportunity to show

you the beautiful people who lend their hands and hearts to the work we do at SweetGeorgia. These women have all brought their smiles and laughter to our space, brought their own obsessions with colour to their projects, and yes, they have inspired each other to knit. Over the past year, I’ve watched our little crew self-organize their own knit-alongs, push each other to learn new techniques, and celebrate with each other when they finish their projects.

For me, SweetGeorgia has always been about more than pretty colours and yarn. It’s about what we do with those materials and how we use them to create our world. This holiday season, I am so thankful for the entire SweetGeorgia team and the world they have created. Happy holidays to you and your world.

Sometimes, it’s just nice to let the knitting do all the work for you and this triangular shawl does not disappoint. The perfect beginner project, the stitches showcase the yarn with a texture that both invigorates and soothes, allowing you find joy in every slip across the needles.

AARE by Madeleine Windsor // knit in Mohair Silk DK

Beautiful and cozy, with a gorgeous panel of stitches reminiscent of Columbine buds, this little hat is lovely enough to keep or gift. The patterning is just enough without being overwhelming, while the Italian Cast On and twisted-rib brim give a thoroughly polished look.

TIDING by Charlotte Lee // knit in CashLuxe Spark

With two colours and a delectable combination of garter and brioche stitch, this shawl is the epitome of captivating depth and texture. Designed to use up every inch of yarn, knitters of every level will savor the completion of this gorgeous accessory.

yarns & colours We develop and source the kinds of yarns we love to knit, weave, and play with. Yarns that begin with fine wools, blended with silk or decadently soft cashmere and kid mohair. Yarns that are beautifully spun and plied for strength and longevity. We believe in creating yarns that will become the foundation for fabrics, garments, and gifts that will endure. These yarns, available at fine yarn retailers all over the world, as well as dyed-to-order here in our shop, are featured in this collection:
