The beginnings of more Deranged Hats!

This is the Cone collecting some our Deranged Yarn for our Deranged Hats!

 I think we now have it down to a science.  We have leftovers from making our regular Hung-hemmed pairs, and ribbed pairs, to make Leftovers pairs and Shortie Tabbed pairs.  Then the leftovers of the leftovers go to Deranged Sock Pairs and the smaller amounts go to the Deranged Cone for Deranged Reversible Hats. I wonder how much deranged yarn we will have by winter and how many hats it will create?

A Keen Sock displayer

The other day MrB bought a pair of Keen Shoes/Sandals.  Upon bringing them home, he left me the box. He knows I like to save boxes for Christmas gifts.  Before storing the box, I opened it and this is what I found.

It is a shoe stuffer!  Immediately I know what I was going to use it for.  It is great to display one of our shortie-tabbed socks.  Just take a look and see! I can't wait to use it at the market.

2 pairs of our Socks traveling the USA like Flat Stanley!

An internet friend of mine, named Josie, that I met online 10-11 years ago, bought two pairs of our Socks Made On 88 socks.  She and her Mr are traveling the USA from South Carolina to various parts of the USA heading west.  Today she sent me pictures to post to my blog.  She told me she was going to do this before she left.  I think its awesome that our socks are touching ground on various states of the US.  This is just like Flat Stanley taking an adventure only this is Josie +socks on a madventure as so she calls it!  I am thrilled to share the pictures with you.

Some Good Karma Yarn already dyed ...

that we brought home!  This yarn is too yummy on the feet, come January and February for our Canadian winters wearing around the house and in winter boots! The dark coral one is MrB's and the other two are mine!

MrB and his cranking set up!

All the yarn we dyed, 2 skeins for MrB and 4 skeins for me!

I am showing off these 2 of mine which is the new Sport yarn ( wool and alpaca)  One  pair of socks and one for a hat for me, whenever MrB gets around to cranking them out for me!  I am so very excited to see both of these projects!

We always try to take a few photos at Good Karm Farm.  This is our 3rd consecutive time attending the crank-in, and we always have so much fun!  MrB loves interacting with other crankers and I love to help manning the dyeing in the mill.  I also enjoy dyeing some yarn for my own use.  MrB took a hand in this again this year, and dyed two skeins for himself.  I have some pictures of the yarn we dyed, and I also am going to share a picture of each of us at the farm.  And we can not go to the farm without also sharing a photo of the animals too.
Close up of the first skein I dyed, the Yellow one, and the other 2 are MrB's bright creations!

Me, MsB assisting in the dyeing process of yarn everyone has dyed.  Here, I am rinsing before spinning.
