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!

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!

One may ask, why do we observe Labor Day?  To put it simply, every first Monday in September of each year,  we pay tribute and celebrate the achievements and contributions of American workers, hence, Labor Day.  It is only appropriate that we honor and pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of our people.

Beginning September 1 through September 7, my Etsy Shop | Shelah Knits will be having a Labor Day Weekend Sale. A 10% off your entire purchase will be applied at checkout.  Be sure to visit!

We are gearing towards the end of summer and this is a good time to start browsing and shopping for some neat, handmade holiday gifts for your loved ones.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, folks!
