SQudio progress (thanks Maverick!)

To save this blog from becoming the clanging blog of doom, tonight we have some photos of progress on the royal workshop/garage/shed/SQudio – call it what you want.

We have been painting like mad for the last three or four evenings to get it ready for flooring, storage, worktops, Belfast double sink, hob etc next week.

It’s not a huge space but it’ll do me nicely. Cannot wait to get in there and dyeing. Nick, the builder who happens also to be a friend, has been coming up with suggestions for improving the dyeing process which I’m thinking about. And I ordered one of these to hang at one end of the room.

Here’s a selection of custom orders which went out today or are going out tomorrow. How hard was it getting decent photos yesterday – the weather was dull, dull, dull – hence the use of the windowsill in one photo:

Reykjavik in Plushness

By the Seaside in Plushness

By the Seaside in Wisp

Sunnyside Up in Plushness

Rockpool in Plushness

Emmeline in Plushness

Emmeline in Shore

Poppy Fields in Kimono

After the custom orders for 25th July, I’m going to have a break from them during August to concentrate on shop updates, cos let’s face it, the shop has bare, cobwebbed shelves at the moment and is in desperate need of a restock.

I’m hoping to get Sock Club yarn dyed up tomorrow but partly dependent on whether Sports Day is cancelled again and when weekend visiting friends arrive, so it could be early next week. I’m also thinking of launching the next quarter of Sock Clubs from September instead of August.

    Oh a clothes rack, how I miss mine.We had a victorian house with 10 foot tall ceilings and I had one in the kitchen. I could get thick jeans dry in 24 hours, and I dried all the clothes for 5 of us on it.We left it when we moved as the ceilings here are only 7 foot tall!I’m sure it will be fantastic for drying yarn.

    The SQudio looks fab as does that yarn…drool….! I’ve got 2 of those clothes airers in the hallway between the house and garage and agree, they’re brilliant. They’re an absolute godsend over the winter when you can’t hang washing outside. For hanging yarny stuff, I’ve found Ikea’s GRUNDTAL 11cm “S-hooks” fit my racks perfectly and are very cheap!

    gorgeous yarn. YOu’re so lucky getting a studio like that. I’m tryingto persuade Simon to convert half our double garage to a studio. In the meantime, tdhe spare room isn’t bad but not prfect.

  6. Just because I don’t particularly enjoy MMORPG’s doesn’t
    instantly make all of them bad. Whether you are not sure what to buy, whether
    you are trying to avoid incessant crowds in shopping malls
    or have to get the best deal for buying something, there are thousands of mobile shopping apps,
    especially geo location shopping app which can help you get out of the chaos and think.
    It really is imperative to list your provider at the
    top of the search engine search results.

    Helpful info. Lucky me I found your site by accident, and I’m surprised
    why this coincidence didn’t came about in advance! I bookmarked
    it.

    Great blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same
    topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get opinions from
    other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
