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.  


  1. Good luck with your new venture, I hope you have plenty of sales! I love those socks, great colours.

  2. I love your socks! I used to yearn for a sock knitting machine, but the ones I could find were out of my price range and I'm not very good about learning to use things on my own. Good luck with your new business!

  3. Cool! I'm not in the market for socks, but sandals now, but I will remember this!


I appreciate comments, Thank you for leaving one.
