wholesome If life gives you lemons, don’t settle for simply making lemonade - make a glorious scene at a lemonade stand. Elizabeth Gilbert The idea began with a lemonade stand, which evolved into more images like smoothie bars, fresh juice shops, or simple, quiet mornings sipping orange juice on the back patio ... the glittering sun, warm summers, blue skies, baskets of citrus like ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, or spiky green and yellow pineapples. Biting into a ripe strawberry or a plump little Clementine is, at the core, wholesome. Good for us. Those bright beauties, the essence of lightness, comfort, and delight, are balms for the spirit. Just like summers laying in the grass, or feeling the sun on our faces, or drinking a fruity beverage. You could say knitting is like that: good for you. That vivid “goodness” is the inspiration behind this collection. Perfectly suited for your warm weather forays into the orange groves, these lightweight pieces promise easy joy and decadent comfort. You’ll find a bit of lace, fun shapes, and bold hues that pull you into the all the emotion found at the lemonade stand. Fun, colourful, and wholly good for you. Happy Knitting. #sweetgeorgiayarns

Oh-so-soft yarn paired with easy stitches makes for a perfectly dreamy tank for warm weather wear. With chevron lace adorning the yoke and a circular construction for the body, it’s the ideal garment for every level of knitter.

LISBONS an asymmetrical shawl // knit in Tough Love Sock

Two bright hues pair as beautifully as the fruit and sugar in your favourite summer beverage. Easy stripes, simple construction, and a unique shape promise an accessory that delights from cast-on to wearing.

PONDEROSA an open lace cardigan // knit in Superwash DK

Ultra-light and decadently easy, this little cardi may be your favourite layering piece for those cool spring evenings. Simple lace lines the front and cuffs, while the raglan sleeves emphasize the breezy nature of the slightly cropped shape.

LEMON DROP a lacy two-colour stole // knit in Bulletproof Sock

Large lacy holes, like little drops of sunlight, dominate the borders of this charmingly bright shawl. Two colours, playing back and forth, allow ample relaxation knitting, with just a hint of skill building lace at the borders.

our yarns Passionate. Relentless. Unapologetic Colour. There is something impossibly alluring about hand-dyed yarns. Everything from the vibrance to the subtle nuances in shade and hue. 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. Here are the yarns used in the Fresh-Squeezed Collection:
