What a crazy week - Last weekend was so warm & sunny that I went for a walk along the Humber Bridge after work ,& went a bit overboard on photographing the Old Tile Works.! My studio is in the left hand building. The restaurant & coffee shop is in the rounded building in front, with the Drying Shed shop, & reclaimation yard to the right.
I had also just had a visit from a lovely lady taking photos for her blog - http://meanqueen- lifeaftermoney.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/visit-to-old-tile-works.html There's lots of tips for saving money here too...
I find the natural patterns of the riverbank inspiring . . .
So after so much sun, & warmth, this week I have had the fire lit in the studio, & getting on with knitting orders, both on the machine & by hand., plus mordanting lots of yarn ready for dyeing, in my old big Baby Burco, now sadly, but hopefully being fixed after tripping all my sockets out! It came from a charity shop in Brigg & has been worth it's weight in gold! Lots of dyeing & knitting times ahead ready for Christmas accessories & gifts.
If you want something made, don't leave it too late!
Finally for now, I also have some lovely shawl pins for sale, made locally for me . . . these are made walnut, but will be getting some beech ones soon, they are all slightly different & individual.
