Simple, colourful creativity.
That statement has become my mantra since the start of the new year, a self- imposed 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 rst moment of colour selection, are fascinating. As the shades unfold into their patterns, it’s almost as if I am witnessing the rst 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 ows 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 with one of our frequent designers, Meg Roke, on page 18. Her aesthetic, graceful and gentle, ts into the spring season as if made for it.
May your knitting be lled with the inspiration and imagination of spring’s colourful bounty. #sweetgeorgiayarns
