New Fall and Beyond Colours for us!

Three colours from the new Rainforest Xl collection and one colourway from the Classics collection.  They include Helge The Detective, Anton The Inspector and Tessa The Snooper, as well as Exclusive!  They will all make beautiful Socks Made On 88 sock pairs once cranked out by Blake (MrB). 

Also, look in the next month or two, for some more new colours to be released and added to our yarn stock from the Music Festivial collection. We have already pre-ordered 4 of them from that series to arrive at a later date. 

We do not order every single colourway of every collection.  I only order the colours that I guess will sell easily as not all colourways suit our customer's desires!

So far I am liking these 4 colourways and will be anxious to see how they look knit into socks!

Home Sweet Home! Laundry time!

Home Sweet Home! Our vacation trip to Alberta was awesome! This is a picture upon our return, the beginnings of getting back into sock-mode. Our clothes line looks colourful today. We did a lot of tramping around wearing running shoes so our socks made a good pairing for touring and our activities also. Speaking of sock-mode, see you at the market this coming Saturday, August 22nd. We are very much looking forward to see the new format of the market and be a part of it. I will post again later in the week when I know of our exact display location for Saturday.

Wild Rose Country Bound or as the song goes.....Alberta Bound!

MrB (Blake) ....  well I think we are past the introduction period of MrB and are moving on to using his real name of Blake!  Blake and I are taking a short break, and taking a vacation to Wild Rose Country to visit lots of my family, hence the photo I have attached for this blog entry.   Our next sheduled appearance will be Saturday, August 22, 2015.

The Historic Farmers' Market is in the midst of changing it's format with some fellow vendors relocating to different areas of the market making a new flow of the traffic moving in a different path.  We wish all the vendors next week the best of luck in the new format!  To our market customers, make sure you visit all the marketing rooms which include the Halifax Room, The Lower Courtyard, The Upper (Main) Courtyard and The Lunenburg Room.  We will be there in a few weeks, so check here, our website or our Facebook page with updates to where our display will be located on August 22, 2015, as I will post  that location closer to the date!

 In closing, a very special Thank you to all our customers today, near and far we had a super-duper day, and that's because of YOU!  Thanks again!
