Socks Made On 88 and my Blog was born on this date!

Happy Birthday to Socks Made On 88 and to my blog!  It surely does not seem that long ago.  But the venture technically started, on January 3, 2012.  Since then, we've been just skating along, doing our thing, creating, marketing and having fun! This little venture has certainly kept us both very much occupied with many tasks that we enjoy.  Our marketing outings, have also been a hightlight in this venture, as we have become to know some awesome fellow vendors and we have many loyal,  supportive, interesting customers. We look forward in serving our customers old and new as we entry this year of 2017!  Our next market stint will be January 7, 2017.  Remember, the new hours also to commence that day and the market will be opening at 8 am instead of 7 am, for Winter Hours.  See you Saturday.  Happy New Year!

BRRRRRRRRR!!! Brigadier 88 was not a happy camper yesterday :-(

Well folks I am here to tell you that with -17C temperature in NS Canada,  and in a building that did not have heat, Brigadier 88 fought back to crank yesterday!  He was just too COLD!  Brigadier will be 6 years old on December 23rd, and this was the very first time he and MrB were having major problems knitting/cranking!  MrB took careful care in not packing him into the trunk until it was time to leave, but the 1/2 hour trek was enough to put him into a non-knitting mood! He was dropping stitches left, right, and centre, and it was not the experienced knitter operating his crank.  It was the COLD! He did finally warm up near the end of the day to create a pair of socks!  Good thing though is that the passerbys did not notice the havoc they were having ..... they still saw the machine in motion.  Now MrB is search of some winter oil!!!
