Roses blooming at our house and Socks blooming too, just in time for our next Market Saturday, September 20, 2014. 

Thanks to our customers of the last market of Sept 6th.  We are now back to twice monthly attendances for September, and onward twice monthly now until the end of April!

Remember to check our website if you need to see the exact dates that we will be at The Historic Famers Market, before venturing out for your market needs.

It is now Sock Season and Christmas gift shopping will be coming up before you know it also. Our socks are sold by your shoe size so knowing your loved one's shoe size is advantageous when purchasing socks from 
Socks Made On 88 !

I'm like a little girl at Christmas waiting...

...when it comes to the anticipation of a yarn order to arrive from Cricket Cove! 

It is one of my favourite things to do within Sock Made On 88, to order the YARN!

I am really liking the new Opal Rain Forest 10 colourways, and can't wait to see them in person.  Then I will be chopping at the bit for MrB to crank some out so I can see them even better!

I am sure that I will not be disappointed, as Opal yarn is our main concentration, and I know our customers are very happy with the outcomes.  Let's see, which colourways tend to be the most popular this time around?

September is here!

Socks Made On 88 will be at the market tomorrow, Sept. 6, 2014.
September is here and we are back to twice monthly attendances.
We are very much looking forward to the fall and winter season of selling socks!  September 20th is the date for our second market stint of September.  Remember to check our website and click the Markets button for our schedule which is always current and up-to date.  Here are some sock pairs, 
we have added lately to our show and sell market display.  The display always has new sock pairs for each attendance.  

There will be shortie-tabbed socks available too!  We will run these in our display till Thanksgiving.  Thereafter, you will have to ask for them, but I will have some on-hand with me at the market tucked away if need be.

It's Back-to-School time and we are hoping that we will have an opportunity to talk to college students as they come to the market to check things out, especially if they are new-comers to Halifax.  Welcome!

The forecast says it is to be another glorious day tomorrow.  We have been lucky to have such nice weather the past few days.  It certainly does not stop MrB and I for wearing our socks so I hope you too find many chances to show off your Socks Made On 88 socks also. 

MrB wants to show off his Good Karma Socks!

Both of these pairs of socks, Good Karma Yarn was dyed by MrB and cranked by MrB for MrB.  They are very bright and happening for a dull winter's day we sometimes experience in Nova Scotia.

What do these remind you of?

This pair of socks reminds me of my youth and younger days growing up in Saskatchewan.  The colours remind me of the Wheat fields ready for harvest, and although that time is not quite here it will soon be arriving!

More Ribbed Sock Pairs for market display upcoming Aug, 23/14.

I'll "Rib" you not...these are very nice colourways for our Ribbed Sock Pairs! Come check them out at our next market attendance Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Historic Farmers' Market. Look for "Socks Made On 88" we will be there! We will be back to our regular twice monthly visits soon, come September!

Don't say where has our summer gone just yet either, as September and October are glorious months to tour our lovely scenic province of Nova Scotia and spend time here.  We will see plenty of cruise ships coming in and love to talk to ALL who stop by, cruisers and our regular market attendees.  Just a reminder that you can check our future market attendance schedule at our website.

Thanks to our "Returning" Customers

Thank you very much to all of our Returning Customers!  We love it when you come to the market to see us, and especially to buy yet another pair of "Socks Made On 88" socks.

We will be at the Historic Farmers' Market again Saturday,
August 23, 2014.  With that attendance we will have some more selections of our Shortie-Tabbed sock pairs, which are selling very well throughout our summer visits.

No doubt I will be making another post to remind everyone of our next market show and sell.  July is almost to a close, so do enjoy the next few weeks of August, before we get to the market again.  MrB will be busy cranking when he is not playing in the sun!
