Varrukas/Sleeve

Varrukas kasvab. Midagi uut ega erilist pole.
The sleeve is growing. Nothing new and nothing special.

Jätkub/Evolving

Jätkan linast jakki. Nüüd on asi selge, kaenla all ühendatud. Koon veel mõnda aega ilma kasvatusteta umbes taljeni, siis hakkan varrukaid tegema.
The linen cardi is evloving slowly. Now it is all clear, joined underarms. I will knit for some time without increases approximately to the waist line and then start the sleeves.

Vahepealne/In-between

Tavaliselt pole mul mitut pooleli kudumit, aga nüüd on selline olukord, et tuleb tellijale selga proovida enne, kui jätkata saab (sest see on just kõige olulisem hetk, kui on vaja kaenla all ühendada). Kuna vahel oli terve nädalavahetus, ei saa ma kudumata olla, seda enam, et oma aega ootab üks peenike meriinolõng,
Usually I don't have several unfinished knits at the same time but now it is a situation when the cliend should try the garment on before I can go on with  it (because it is the most improtant moment when it is time to join the back and the front pieces under the arms). Whereas the whole weekend was ahead of me, I could not be not knitting, especially when a  merino laceweight yarn was sitting and waiting.
Meriino on 100 g/800 m üleminekuvärvidega, üksinda tundus mulle liiga lörr, mulle meeldib selgema struktuuriga koepind. Aga sellest topist on järel linase ja viskoosi segu, 100 g/400 m. Nii et panin nad kokku. Seda enam, et meriino värv läheb sujuvalt mustast valgeks ja mulle ei meeldi puhas valge värv, las tal olla kontrastne kaaslane.
Merino is 100 g/800 m in gradient colours; when knitted alone, it is too "liquid" for my taste, I like more structured fabrics. But I have some linien-rayon blend from this top, 100 g/400 m. So I put the two together. Especially in the view that the colour of merino is going from black to white and I don't like white, so let it have a contrasting partner.
Siin pole veel eriti näha, aga juba algab tumehall sektsioon. Varras 5 mm, suured augud.
It is not yet visible but a dark-grey section is begininning. I am using 5 mm needles and the holes are quite large.

Marianne juures Helsingis/At Marianne's in Helsinki

Eile käsin Marianne juures Helsingis. Ta on soome Burda peatoimetaja ja korraldab käsitöö kruiise. Nüüd tegeleb ta Adéle's Mohair lõngadega ja ilmselt hakkab ametlikuks esindajaks Põhjamaades (Marianne's Mohair nime all). Tema ateljee on lõngu ja kudumeid täis.
Yesterday I visited Marianne in Helsinki. She is the editor in chief of the Finnish Burda and organizes handicraft cruises. Now she is involved in Adéle's Mohair yarns and probably will be their represenatitive in the Nordic countries (under the lable of Marianne's Mohair). Her workshop is full of yarns and knits.
Karbis on komplekt: sobivates värvides erineva faktuuri jämedusega lõngad.
There is a kit in the box: yarns in various textures and weights but of matching colours.
Valmiskudumid:
Knitwear:
Käisin ka rätikut näitamas! Suvel tuleb kooskudumise info.
I also showed my shawl! The info about KAL comes in summer.

Mezgimo zona

Mezgimo zona on rohkem kui lõngapood. See on ka kudumisklubi ja -raamatukogu. Kahtlemata astusin läbi ka seekord.
Mezgimo zona is more than a yarnstore. It is a knitting club and library as well. Needless to say, I visited it this time, too.
Kena, kui lõngapoes on palju kudumeid. Proovilapp on oluline, aga on hoopis teine tunne, kui saab näha valmisasja. Valmiskudumid müüvad lõnga!
It is nice when a yarnstore has a lot of knits to show. A swatch is important but when you see a finished knitted item, it gives you a whole different picture. Knits sell yarn!
Seal üleval on linased lõngad ja neid on tegelikult rohkem.
This is linen on the top and there is more of it.
 
Seekord ei ostnud lõnga endale, vaid hoopis kudumissõpradele ja veel ühe tellimuse tarvis. Sellest viimasest kirjutan varsti rohkem.
This time I did not purchase any yarn for myself but rather for knitting friends and for an order. I will write more soon about the latter.
