I love Jane Richmond's newest pattern Georgia. She used local yarn designer, Sweet Georgia Yarns' Tough Love Sock yarn for this elegant design. If you are a 'shop local' fanatic like I am this is the project for you.
You can buy Jane's pattern online at any of the following links
And Sweet Georgia Yarns here on their online shop or at the following brick and mortars in the Vancouver Area
Three Bags Full
Black Sheep Yarns
or if you are on the Island
Knits by the Sea
Mad about Ewe Fine Yarns
or on the Sunshine Coast
Unwind Knit and Fibre Lounge
Wow, Felicia at Sweet Georgia is keeping busy these days.
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate and spread the word about all events, new local patterns, products and businesses.
Submit the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other local DIY news and I'll post about it here. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the proprietor and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn, and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as share Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just fill out the form at the top of this page, or send your press release to me at
