First big round of Ukraine socks

First big round of Ukraine socks is mostly finished. The long (shiggy) socks are all spoken for, but I am still selling through the short crew socks (hit me up if you want to get some). My friend, Adele, even put out a Tik-tok video about the socks!

As a result, I am looking at making another round to be made and sold. If you are very keen, feel free to send me an email to get on the list, and let me know if you are wanting long or shorts socks.

47 pairs sold, means I sent $690 to Doctors without Borders.

The proud and ancient battle standard of the Welsh is The Red Dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) and consists of a red dragon, passant (standing with one foot raised), on a green and white background. As with any ancient symbol, the appearance of the dragon has been adapted and changed over the years, and hence several different variations exist.

Hasher sarong

A new addition to the line-up this year has been my sarong. I’ve done a number of custom orders: for Craft Head, and for the Pirates rugby team, but I also came out with a red one that has the hash foot spread throughout and “ON-ON” written repeatedly as the border. Was rather popular at the All-China-Nash-Hash. Lots of hashers wearing them in the most different ways.

Brewery patches and sarong!

Last month, I had the opportunity to not only attend Brews on the Beach, a great beer festival on the beach, but I also had the opportunity to help out the brewery that organized the event, Craft Head. I don’t mean helping out by just “helping drink beer” but also by producing some patches and a sarong for them.

The 3 patches came out great. I made sure to wear one on a shirt for the event. Still need to get my hands on the other to put on a shirt…. I think I even have the right shirt in mind…. (hint: it already has Big Lebowski patches on it….)

The Sarongs came out awesome! The designer, Sean, did a great job. Will need to make my way back to the bar to get one of those as well. I’m not sure how I will include it when I am wearing my overalls, but I will find a way.

The beer fest itself was just awesome! An open area literally right next to the sand of a beach. Lots of great breweries were in attendance, including some favorites like Jing-A, Paper Planes, etc. It was a buy-a-ticket for all you can drink per session. We did the last 2 sessions on Saturday, and then hung out with the crowd on Sunday before catching the bus ride home.

Pirates’ (rugby) sarongs! and more

Sarongs and socks and a bucket hat, oh my!! – Its been fun doing the sarongs, or as the team full of New Zealand guys likes to call them: lava-lavas. We took the gold from the Pirate’s shield logo, and used it for the background color of the sarong. The the team said they wanted the shield logo as 2 layers on the bottom half. It is a little different from my hasher sarong, but that’s their preference.

Additionally, the team needed some bucket hats with the logo, and some socks with their logo as well. Originally the bucket hats were to be black, but after having a sample tried out in the sun a few days, it was decided a khaki would be a bit cooler.
