Monday Meanderings

Bamboo sock yarns hung to dry in the setting sun
Bamboo sock yarns hung to dry in the setting sun. So lovely.

It’s Monday and my brain has become complete mush since I worked until midnight last night. Without the requisite amount of sleep, everything, and I mean everything, makes me exhausted. Even flipping through my keys to find my house key is exhausting. Sometimes I wish I had an extra arm… maybe that would make things easier. But it’s all good because the work included massive updates to the online shop:

* Speed Demon Sock yarns in both handpainted colourways and natural kettle dyed colours
* Superwash Sock yarns
* Spun Silk laceweight yarn
* Heartcore Heavy aran weight mohair and wool yarn
* Handpainted Lace yarns
* Schacht weaving shuttles, warping tools and more weaving things (we have these in-stock at the studio)

There is also more fibre and more CashSilk Lace to come, but it’ll take me some time to get those photos done and posted.

###Studio Space + Rentals
The most exciting thing here is that we are now starting to take reservations for dye workspace and floor looms at the studio. You can have a look at our new one-pager site with all the details and rates. Also, you can subscribe to our Google Calendar which will show all our open hours, including exceptions to the general hours, plus upcoming events. If you are in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, we’d be happy to help you reserve a floor loom or rent a spinning wheel.

###Knit + Spin Afternoon

And finally, I’ll be hosting a knit/spin-in on December 6th. Come spend a relaxing afternoon at the studio with your knitting or spinning! On Saturday, December 6th from 1pm to 4pm… Bring your spinning wheel, your knitting project, your questions or ideas… Feel free to browse through our resource library upstairs or play on one of the floor looms.

Over the next few days, I’ll be making up a blanket warp with “seconds” of my hand-dyed yarn. The yarn itself is still fabby, it’s just that the colours aren’t quite what I’m willing to sell… We’ll have one of the floor looms warped up for the blanket and you are welcome to come and try weaving a shot or two or twenty. Once the blanket is finished, we’ll be donating it to a homeless shelter in the Vancouver Lower Mainland. We’d love to have your participation.

Please RSVP by email to info [at] sweetgeorgiayarns [dot] com since I’ll need to know how many chairs we should supply… if you’ve seen the studio, you’ll know that seating is kinda limited, so please RSVP soon.

###Dye Workshops

Soon, soon, in January, I will be offering a number of dye workshops at the studio. Everything from the absolute basics of dyeing on wool to handpainting yarns to natural dyeing. If there is something in particular you are interested in learning, drop me a line and I’ll see what I can accommodate as I put together the lesson plans. Ahh, now back to work.

    Wow. You’ve been a busy girl! And as always, your colors are stunning. I have a friend in Vancouver, but I haven’t been able to convince her to try knitting … yet.
