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!

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?
