Ship-Shape Sheep-Shop?

This is all about the shop (PrettyKnittyJewelry)! I sell knitting row counters, stitch markers and I am branching out with some bracelets as well. I know, I know. . .it's not a sheep shop, but I really need the sheep for some of my knitting (where else would I get wool?), so I like to include them wherever I can. . . Stop into the shop on Etsy, and pick up a gift for a knitting friend, OR for your-knitting-self!

Not much knitting going on here, but I made several row counters this weekend, and they really wanted to show off! Like this little SHEEP. . .isn't he just the cutest thing? I know, and he was really hamming it up during the photo shoot! How DO you get a sheep to shape up? LoL!
Here he is joined by what I think is a spindle and a ball of orange-y yarn! I got these beads through a mail-order catalog, and you are never really 100% sure what will come in the package, but overall, I like these!
The next counter to show off has a holiday theme. Slow down, there, Chief. . .I am not rushing into Christmas on you. . .I PROMISE! But, I also got some Halloween beads in a recent shipment! I don't know who had more fun with the pix. . .me, the sheep, or this little Jack-O'lantern!
Can you believe that summer is coming to an end? Me either! But, school starts around here(college and otherwise) on Monday, so it was just about time to start with the fall holiday themes.
But looking at the bright sunshine in my next counter (will list in the shop soon), you would not know that it is nearly time to Knit Sweaters! It was so bright, and so hot (90-ish and humid) that I was simply melting in the sun while staging these photos. I love this counter. . .a red sweater with two balls of yarn! Every knitter's dream. . .
And finally, this one. . .a Celebration waiting to happen (will list in the shop soon)! Who doesn't love a well-placed cupcake? So here are three for the knitter who wants to keep track of rows instead of calories. By the way, I have heard that knitting reduces night-time and TV snacking. . .works for me!
So, celebrate summer, and sun, and even a new school year! And Knit in Good Health!
