More Yarn I Admire

What an original blog post title.

Looking for Canadian content for this next round of this topic I was getting discouraged. I suppose I am a design snob, so let's just say that there were a lot of sites I entered and exited really quickly.

For those of you who like a really down to earth feel Nature Song Yarn are a good bet. Think subtle and relaxing.

I started to get excited when I found Ocean Wind Knits. In addition to some really beautiful colourways they have fun patterns too.

I started to salivate when I found Sweet Georgia Yarns. This was exactly what I had been searching for. With names like honey fig, afterglow, libertine, boheme, the colours are a promise delivered—vibrant, modern and fun! Now for the bad news—HIATUS—that's right no Sweet Georgia for at least six months starting April 15. Bummer, I just found her and poof! she's gone.

Can't go to bed until I mention Handmaiden a division of Fleece Artist. Great colours and, as with all of the previous options, a worthy blog too.

I really love Handmaiden!! I found Sweet Georgia Yarns the other day too and was rather discouraged to learn about the hiatus.
