Sweet Georgia is running a ‘Summer of Socks’, with educational blog posts, a spin- and knitalong, and there’s a contest!
Also on the topic of Vancouver (the home of Sweet Georgia Yarns), the teacher line-up has just been announced for Knit City 2014, being held at the Pacific National Exhibition Centre, October 4 & 5th. The third annual event, Knit City is the premier knitting event in B.C. Kate’s taught there the first two years, and this year Amy is joining her. Class lists and registration info here. Even if you don’t take a class, the retail fair is always terrific. So much yarn, and so many great designers and indie dyers from the Pacific Northwest. And last year there was both a coffee truck and a grilled cheese truck. Really, what more do you need?
