|The start of my husband's jumper.|

The jumper is Tire Trace by Agata Smektala. The pattern is a free Ravelry download and can be found here.
The waistcoat can also be found on Ravelry here. It is by Meghan McFarlane and is an extremely quick knit having no seams at all.
I really enjoyed knitting this cosy waistcoat and am looking forward to wearing it.
We also travelled into Manchester and went on the Big Wheel.
The Big Wheel can be found in Piccadilly Gardens right in the centre of Manchester. Such an extraordinary experience being up so high and able to see for miles around.
|Fabric printed and stencilled.|
There has also been some printing using some of the techniques taught by Gillian Travis during her workshop. Here you can see some photos of the fabrics I played around with. All have been painted with acrylic paints with some spraying and the use of stencils, thermofax screens and block prints.
This last piece may, or may not turn out to be something. I am rather late to submit it to Sky's the Limit for their November challenge - Townscape. The photos come from buildings I photographed whilst they were being demolished in the early 1970s. The brick shapes come from paintings I made around the same time.
