Last fall the creative folks at Hand Maiden and Fleece Artist put out a call for pattern submissions based on the theme of Nova Scotia colours and culture.  The interest was strong from pattern designers with fond memories and inspirations drawn from the Nova Scotia land, culture, and its people. Come and visit with us in this video as we hear the story behind the stories from Jana at Hand Maiden.

At dusk each evening 8500 crows return to roost on the grounds of Mount Saint Vincent University in western Halifax, as they have done for more than 60 years. Local legend tells that each crow was a nun from the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse who had died and returned for a visit. These socks celebrate those curious crows.
