Etsy Holiday Shop

I'm so pleased (and excited and flattered) to announce that Yellow House Knits has been invited to participate in the first-ever Etsy Holiday Shop, a brick-and-mortar pop-up store to be held in Soho starting November 29.  A selection of baby sweaters, in a range of sizes, styles, and colors will be available.  If you happen to be in the area, be sure to check it out. 

I'm so disappointed that I can't be there to see it myself.  I hope it's a wonderful event.  And while I'm so happy to be included, I also--more importantly--hope it does a lot to increase awareness about Etsy and buying handmade.  It sounds magical!

Color Inspiration: Karmin

This seemed like a good Color Inspiration for Election Day!  Karmin was the headliner at the Rock 'N' Roll Providence Half Marathon in August.  (BTW, I really like that Brokenhearted song.)  As I was looking at their promotional materials, I was struck by how much I loved the color scheme. I adore the clean and crisp combination of colors. I think the two shades of blue (as well as the fact that they aren't royal blue) and the gray keep it from looking too Fourth of July.  If I were making a sweater in these colors, I'd probably make it primarily blue and gray, with the red and white as accent colors.

Bright Stripes

I was so happy to get this picture of E in her custom Yellow House Knits sweater!  The sweater looks perfect for a cool fall day!  Love that big smile!
