I have a long history of loving SweetGeorgia’s yarns. I used them way back in my very first book and have been happily playing with them ever since (oh and there just might be a pattern in one of their yarns in the new book due out next month). I love it when yarn companies collaborate with designers, so when I heard they were releasing a collection this fall, I was totally excited!
The collection is called Fall with SweetGeorgia (that ‘volume 1’ part there makes me hope there are more things planned), and it’s delightful. It’s a lovely mix of accessories and garments, all carefully designed to show off the depth and richness of hand-dyed yarns.
The collection includes a total of 12 pieces, four sweaters (each in at least six sizes, which is awesome), two big shawls, and six smaller accessories. Glenwood is totally my kind of sweater (and, if one of you could just turn me into a sweater knitter, I know I’d wear it all the time), Reiland looks like just the thing if you’re looking to tuck into a big lace project, and Nexus seems like a perfect cross between a scarf and a shawl. I suspect you’ll have a grand time with any of them!
The patterns are all available individually (though I confess I wish there were a way to buy them all together, they’re pretty enough I think you’ll want more than one), and there will be knit alongs over on the SweetGeorgia ravelry group if anything has caught your eye. The folks at SweetGeorgia are going to get one of you started on a pattern of your choice. Just leave a comment letting me know which pattern you’d most like to cast on and why. I’ll pick a winner next week and put you in touch with the SG folks to send the pattern your way.
Comments left between now and the end of the day (eastern time) Monday, October 19, 2015 will be entered to win. I’ll pick a winner, contact them to get their rav name, and arrange to send the pattern their way. Be sure to use a real email address so I can contact you if you’ve won (I won’t do anything with those email addresses besides notify the winner). If I do email you, I need to hear back from you within 72 hours or I will pick a new winner and contact them. This is an electronic prize, so it’s open to anyone.
