MAKER UPDATE #6-#9 | GLAD TO BE BACK!

Welcome back y’all! I’ve been on a 3-week hiatus due to traveling, but I’m back, and glad so! For those of you interested, the boyfriend and I went island hopping on the Azores! It was a totally different holiday experience than we were both used to (it included hiking shoes, rain jackets, and back packs #justsayin), but it was ah… wait for it …mazing! Watching too much HIMYM these days, can you tell? This is not the place to share stories and pictures, but check out my personal Instagram account @merelymerel if you’re curious. Anyway, what I’m getting at is that all I did was travel knitting. 😉 BUT it’s also shop update day today, so read on for info about that!
