As a new writer for this blog I will introduce myself to you. I am Kim and I sell my fashion line, Im Strang, on the craftline at Pike Place market. I am a knitter, using manual vintage knitting machines mostly, and sell a mixture of socks and accessories to a full line of sweaters, tops and dresses.
You may have seen my seamed back socks waving in the air on my quite obvious, many questions asked about, sock mannaquin legs. That’s how people remember my booth. Upside down legs. They prompt more bad jokes and Christmas story references than I ever thought possible but hey, they are eye catching and draw attention to my table!
There are a good few of us selling accessories and garments at the market. The eco friendly, upcycling designers reconstruct old cashmere sweaters and t-shirts into totally new garments. The fiber minded of us weaving, spinning, knitting and crocheting. Each of our four feet booths offer handmade, high end fashion for many different tastes and styles. It’s boutique shopping straight from the artist. Just look for the legs and come say hi.
