first blooms Simple, colourful creativity. That statement has become my mantra since the start of the new year, a selfimposed mission to let loose and see where colour leads me. From learning how to dye yarn during my recent trip to the studio in Vancouver or playing with my new watercolour paint set, I’ve been following the whim of the muse, exploring how hue and tone meld with texture and pattern. The stories in this collection capture that very essence of play, juxtaposing vibrant, candy-like colours and delicate, muted hues into a gorgeous harmony. Soft and bold, natural and structured, combined or distinct, the results, from the first moment of colour selection, are fascinating. As the shades unfold into their patterns, it’s almost as if I am
witnessing the first blooms of wild growth in early spring. Whether you are feeling bold or more contemplative, the colourful pieces in this collection will delight. From the imaginative use of Party of Five sets to delicate lace that flows with untroubled simplicity, the garments and accessories from our fantastic team of designers promise lightweight, deliciously comfortable knitting. I’m particularly excited to feature an interview in our eBook with one of our frequent designers, Meg Roke. Her aesthetic, graceful and gentle, fits into the spring season as if made for it. May your knitting be filled with the inspiration and imagination of spring’s colourful bounty. #sweetgeorgiayarns

CURIOSA knit in Tough Love Sock // by emily wood
Tilting blocks of bright colours, surrounded by broken rib, are delightfully easy. The bias fabric sways back and forth like wavy lines, making for a gorgeous accessory that defines the line between grace and daring.

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 Spring with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 3 collection:
