It is March 1st today....

and I am really hoping by the time the 14th arrives, that we will not have to bundle up to attend our next market stint!
Can you say I am tired of dressing in many layers?  I am tired of ice! I am tired of the cold temperatures! I want Spring to be on my doorstep soon!

Slow but surely, just like a turtle...

I have never really concentrated on Socks Made On 88's Facebook page too hard, my focus has been more here at my blog, but if anyone is interested, please give us a "LIKE"

Just to let you know...

We will be in the Main (Upper) Courtyard tomorrow,
Sat Feb 28, 2015 7am -1pm.  And since it's still very cold and icy it is not rubber boot season yet, but I continue to dream that time will soon be upon us.  In the meantime, enjoy some of these bright coloured sock pairs to brighten your day or feet!

Keep a dreamin' ... Spring will be here soon!

Yes, we are dreaming of Spring!

With Spring to arrive in the not too distance future, or so we are hoping, comes Rubber boot season and cool colourful sock pairs!

We will be at the Market, Saturday, Feb 28, 2015 7am to1pm!

Market Day!

Yesterday at the market, MrB caught me on camera.  I think it was a little bit too cold for him to sit and crank/knit away so he was walking around visiting and wanted to take this photo. He was catching me by surprise while I was inspecting our display and waiting for potential customers.  The picture turned out well and so yes, I wanted to share it on my blog.  As you may notice I am decked out in some red for Valentine's Day.

To Find us tomorrow at the Market...

Look for us in the Upper Courtyard, across from The Humble Burdock Farm.  Happy Valentine's Day to all :-)

Gifted to us ~ Ancient Arts Handpainted Yarn!

My son gifted us some Ancient Arts yarn! 

This yarn is new to us, but we are very much looking forward to try these beauties (hugs) on our feet.  The Yarn is 100% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester Wool, 4 ply fingering/sock.  The first 3 colourways that MrB has cranked out are pictured above and the label photo too showing the three colours of Abalone, Scottish Mist and Cranberry Harvest. The label says, nature.inspiration.glorious colours! Yes "Colours" is spelled with a "U", one indication that this company may be in Canada.  I am not positive, but I think it may be based in British Columbia. If you want to read more about Ancient Arts Yarn go to:

We will have another selection of this yarn to post at a later date, the colourway being from the Meow Category, so watch for another Ancient Arts Yarn update down the road.
