A day of rain… A day for staying indoors and catching up on sound and photo editing and compiling. We took ourselves out briefly at midday to go and visit a couple of knitters near Cunningsburgh (one to commission a new cardigan for Kay and the other to pick up and pay for a previous purchase).

The sound of Barbara Isbister with her knitting machine, producing Kay a spontaneous sample of her work so she could choose the right colours for her new cardie sent me scurrying out to the car to collect my mics so I could record her in action. Please listen on a good pair of headphones…

On the way home we came across some abandoned agricultural buildings just outside Lerwick and I used the opportunity to record the sound of the rain on the corrugated roof. Again, please listen on headphones…
