Hi, my name is Shelah and I am the owner and maker of Shelah Knits, LLC.
I love handmade! I have always admired people's creativity in turning ideas into unique and stunning creations.
This little shop started out as a hobby. I started selling online and with my love for texture and color, I started incorporating our beautiful state of Alaska’s inspirations into my work and filled the demand for some handmade items.
In August 2020, I quit my day job in banking and finance and focused full time in achieving my dream. Being an aspiring small business owner takes a lot of patience, hard work and dedication, and I have the utmost respect for people who pursue their passion. It is my belief that God gave us gifts and abilities for creativity and resourcefulness and we are to use them to live productive lives and inspire and encourage others to do the same.
My favorite activities include hiking, road trips, crochet and knitting, particularly pattern testing for other designers. Yes, I know, right? I knit for work but it is still my favorite thing to do. I also do some blogging and while I incorporate some blog posts here, I also have my main blog at shelahknits.wordpress.com.
