Spring flowers are popping up around us, and the earth feels as though it’s ready to burst with new life and colour. And with the official arrival of spring soon here, we’re happy to share the news of our upcoming 2021 SweetGeorgia Spring Make-Along, running from April 13 to May 11!
This year, we’re also adding in a little something extra to our MAL with a celebration of lace, where you can earn bonus giveaway entry points for using either a lace pattern or lace-weight yarn in your project. Celebrate spring by wrapping up in the beauty of lightweight lacy projects!
All of the Spring Make-Along chat and project sharing will be running over at the School of SweetGeorgia community forums – join us there at our Spring Make-Along 2021 Club! Note: If you are not a current member of the School of SweetGeorgia and interested in joining the MAL, use the following link for access to the SOS Make-Along club: www.schoolofsweetgeorgia.com/join/make-along/
Now to help with your project planning and to get ready for the cast-on date, plus continuing our celebration of lace, we’re having a SweetGeorgia Spring Lace Yarn Sale!
From now until March 23, enjoy 15% off the following yarn bases: CashSilk Lace, Merino Silk Lace, SeaSilk Lace, Silk Mist, and Superwash BFL+Silk Lace! *UPDATE: Our Lace Yarn Sale has now ended – we’re busy getting all orders shipped out to makers as soon as possible!
If all this lace talk has you inspired to learn more about how to knit lace patterns, visit the School of SweetGeorgia Become a Lace Knitter course! In this course, Tabetha Hedrick brings you right to the basics of lace, guiding you each step of the way through to a whole new world of beautiful fabrics to enjoy.
Note: The yellow shawl sample shown in the top photo is: Radiative, designed by Tabetha Hedrick.
