A Spring 2022 Lace-Along

It’s that dreamy time of year again when the sun gets warmer, the early blooms of daffodils pop open, and grass takes over the backyard as suddenly as a seasonal thunderstorm. It’s spring! But, even better, it’s Spring Lace-Along Time!

With lightweight yarns and lacy patterns, we’re knitting, crocheting, and spinning our way out of the winter blues and I’m hoping you’ll join me! Each week, I’m going to show up right here on the blog to share my lace-project progress. I haven’t quite decided what mine will be yet (new design?), but you’ll get the front seat viewpoint into my process from start to finish.

I’d love to have you join me! For those of you who are wrapping up Track A of the Lace Knitting Study Group at the School, this is the perfect time to show off your new skills!

If you are keen on jumping in, I’ve taken the liberty here of anticipating some of your questions.

When does the Spring Lace-Along start?

Start Date: April 4, 2022

End Date: May 14, 2022

How can I take part?

This is the easiest part – choose a lacy project, a lace-weight yarn, or a favourite fibre and cast-on, or attach a leader to the spindle! Then, join me here every week on the SweetGeorgia Yarns blog and/or over Instagram to share your progress, thoughts, tips, tricks, photos, and insights throughout the experience. I’ll get some accountability and you’ll get some camaraderie in all things lace. Win-win! Grin!

Optionally, if you are a School of SweetGeorgia member, bring your lace-along project to any of the Virtual Meet-ups with Robyn, Vikki, or Charlotte for a little extra make-along motivation (I’ll be popping in on some of those, too!).

I need yarn ideas! What do you suggest?

Oh, boy, do we have you covered in this department.

Since you’re on a roll, have any pattern suggestions?

Naturally! We have a ton of patterns for your lace-loving pleasures!

Are there any prizes?

YES! In order to be eligible for a prize, you must:

  • Use a SweetGeorgia Yarn or a SweetGeorgia pattern
  • Cast-on after April 4
  • Post a progress picture on Instagram with the yarn, pattern, and hashtag #sweetgeorgialacealong.

The prizes this year are going to rock your world!

Grand prize: a signed copy of Dyeing to Spin & Knit by Felicia Lo, winner’s choice of a 2 skein pattern + yarn set, a $50 gift card to SweetGeorgia Yarns, and a 3-month subscription to the School of SweetGeorgia

The prizes alone make it worth your while to break out a little lace, eh? So, start thinking about patterns and meet me back here next week for the first Spring Lace-Along blog post.
