Who else remembers this slogan from the early 1980s? We have a wastebasket in my office with one of those blue-and-white thumbs-up bumper stickers on its side. I guess that a good sense of irony has always been helpful in our line of work....
I was reminded of that slogan last week, as I did a little SockapalOOOza planning. Turns out that production of my Sock Pal's socks will be completely Massachusetts based. Completely Boston based, to be more specific. The knitting will be done in Boston, and the yarn will have been dyed in Boston too!
Whoa, what's that? Perfect colorway ahead. It's called Dusk.
In my "Make it in Massachusetts" googling, I came across this site of town slogans. If you're a Bay Stater, or if you've ever lived in Massachusetts, have a look. It gave me a little chuckle, although I will mention that Woonsocket is in RHODE ISLAND. [Duh!]
