I took the opportunity to shoot some photos of my workspace and knitting machines and felt like sharing them. I borrowed a full frame camera and set it on a tripod to properly record my studio with its varying light conditions. Check out Simone's recent visit to my space here. This is a busy time for me with production orders (to White Elephant, Bespoke Truckee, Workshop, Flock and Distill). These are filling up my time, so this is as much procrastination as anything!
I work in a space I partially renovated over the summer (it originally looked quite terrifying), but slowly as I paint and organize it is transforming into quite a nice studio. I think it's pretty obvious one day I will need a bigger space. One whole side of the space is a jungle of tables, additional knitting machines, piles of orders and misc. equipment, so that still needs to be sorted. As well I am restoring another old machine (which I love to do). If you count there are four separate machines in these photos. Each one is set up for a different task and each machine is lit with a mixture of natural light and imitation daylight. I hope you like these photos...
