County Fair 2019

Wow! After months of market preparation, the County Fair that I was participating in finally wrapped this year. Dozens of vendors with their crafts, trade and expertise, our ever-loving community that never ceases to support our local dreamers, and of course, the dedication and commitment of the organizers all helped make this event a successful one for the books.

My handmade shop Shelah Knits featured trendy and fun hats, headbands and scarves.  Check out some of my photos from the fair.

I had some knitted pumpkins, my Fireweed cozies, fun kids’ hats, and trendy headbands and fingerless gloves.

Some of these items will be on my Etsy Shop so stop by and check them out!

Thank you to all who came out and dropped by. We hope to see you next year!

Knitted Pumpkins

It is only a week and a half to go before the market day I am going to be in and there are lots to do!

This week, I have been enjoying working on some knitted pumpkins.  The pattern is from FitFoodArtShop and I love it because it uses up some of my stash yarn.

The possibilities are just endless! You can combine any colors you want or any color stash you have for that matter.

See you next time and happy knitting!

Market Prep 2019

It’s been a week since fall started but here in Alaska, it seems like we are closely approaching the end of it. Check out the mountains around us and they are all screaming winter! That brings me to point out another exciting thing…. hat season!

Knitting wise, I am having a blast.  I am currently doing a market prep for the end of October.  So for you makers out there, you know what this means.  I have been knitting away hats in different sizes for months now, and I am loving it.

New discovery: Lion Brand Yarn’s Wool Ease Thick and Quick has released newer colors.  I am not entirely sure when these colors came out.  However, among what I have used so far, these are my favorites: Coney Island which has gorgeous shades of fall colors and Astropolis which has pinks and purples.  These color ways definitely made my all-time fave list like the Hudson Bay.  Look how those colors play out!

How about you? Do you have a market or bazaar you are prepping for? Share with us what you’re working on.

Happy knitting!
