Felicia's Notebook, Taking Back Friday

Let’s Talk About Yarn, YAY!

Vickie Howell's November YarnYAY! knit and crochet patterns using SweetGeorgia Superwash DK yarn in Dried Lavender

Welcome to the very first Taking Back Friday of November! Today I want to share with you some of the collaborations that we’re doing in the knitting world, and some of the things that are happening with our yarns.

The very first one I want to let you know about is a collaboration we’re so excited for… a collaboration with Vickie Howell’s subscription box, YarnYAY!. Each month, Vickie’s subscription box features a number of different makers: yarn makers, notions maker, pattern makers and a bunch of different exciting things. And in the November subscription box, there’s a skein of our SweetGeorgia Superwash DK yarn in Dried Lavender! Also included in each box is always both a knit and crochet pattern – this month featuring a knit cowl pattern designed by Vickie, and a crochet cowl pattern designed by Detroit Knots.

There are also a couple of other goodies in the November box: a set of super cute labels made by Kylie and the Machine and a bracelet kit from Hello Bargello. In a previous vlog, I was wearing these little Bargello earrings that I made from a Hello Bargello kit. They’re so much fun to make – so easy and quick!

Watch today’s Taking Back Friday vlog to get a closer look at everything included in this month’s YarnYAY! box, plus many other new and exciting items I have to share with you! I talk about our new Tapestry Sock Yarn Blank, changes to one of our yarn base names (and the reason behind it), what I’m knitting right now, as well I talk about my new sock design that begs to be worn while curled up at home… wearing pyjamas, drinking hot chocolate by a fireplace.

I can’t believe it’s getting so close to the end of 2020. I’d love to hear what is making you happy in these days. Leave me a comment and let me know what is keeping your spirits up, and how you’re spending your time with your crafts!

  • want I’m currently knitting? I’m continuing working on my Soundtrack sweater, designed by Marie Greene. I’m knitting mine in SweetGeorgia BFL+Silk DK in Mulberry and Lupine. But a new project I’ve recently started is a new colourwork sweater that I’m test knitting for Abbye Dahl, designed using our Superwash DK yarn (I’m using the colourway Mink and then subbing with a selection of Tough Love Sock yarn held double). The pattern is not released yet, but you can find all of her available patterns at her webshop!
  • want to learn more about knitting and/or colourwork knitting? We have courses that can help! Right from the very beginning of how to knit, through to knitting Your First Sweater and learning Stranded Colourwork, be sure to check out all of the knitting content available at the School of SweetGeorgia!
