I’m the Soxophone Player. I live and farm at Spruce Haven Farm near Meaford, Ontario. (You can visit my farm store here.)
Spruce Haven is a sheep farm and we carry our own line of wool – Meaford Wool. I knit socks using my own hand dyed yarn as well as other artisan yarns.
I do this with three antique sock knitters that were made in the mid 1800′s. How cool is that ! There was a very steep learning curve for me – it took me 14 months to get a sock that actually resembled a sock!
On my blog I’ll show the different yarns I’m knitting, and how the socks came out. From time to time I’ll also give some tips on using the antique sock knitters, other snippets of life on the farm, and maybe even some pictures of my companion Jesse, a Golden Doodle.
