Socks for Sale!

I didn't realize it has been 3 months since my last post.  My how time flies.

I have done a bit of tatting but nothing that I really wish to post.  However, I have been knitting socks.

I have registered a company in my state - Farmgal's Twisted Fiber - and will be trying to sell socks, tatted lace and crocheted items at various venues in the area.  In the mean time,  I have a page on Facebook -- Farmgal's Twisted Fiber 

I have posted my first 4 pair of socks for sale.  If you click on the picture, you will be able to read the caption listing the fiber content and the sizing.

$25.00 + postage

$30.00 + postage

$25.00 + postage

$30.00 + postage

Each of these is made from SuperWash wool and a synthetic such as nylon for wear strength.  

Oh, I do not knit these 2 needles, I knit these with 60 needles.  Here is a picture of my 1924 Sock Knitting Machine

you can ignore the text boxes in this picture, that was for something else, but this is a good picture of my setup.  

If you have any questions, I will try to give you an accurate answer.  

On another note, I have a broody hen out in the chicken house.  2 more weeks, and we should have baby chicks. 

Thanks for being patient waiting for me to blog again.
