Vest valmis/The vest is finished

Pestud, pingutatud, nüüd pilidid.
Washed and blocked and here are the pictures.
 
 
 
Vest on üsna avar. Ei ole kaalunud, aga arvan, et kulus umbes 200 g (550 m ringis). Vardad 4,5 mm, sallkrae mahakudumiseks 5 mm (nn i-cord).
The vest is quite loose fitting. I don't know the exact weight but I guess it is about 200 g (about 550 m). Needles 4.5 mm and 5 mm for bind off of the button band (i-cord).

Nööbilist alustatud/Started the button band

Kere on valmis, nüüd on veel nööbiliist teha. Seda on veel vähe kootud.
The torso is finishe, now the button band remains. I have managed to knit it only to a small extent.
Põhimuster on aga üsna nähtav.
The main pattern is already quite distinguishable.

Vest edeneb/The vest is progressing

Hiiumaa villane sobib hästi nn pseudopalmikute jaoks. Muster tuleb hästi reljeefne.
Hiiumaa wool is quite suitable for so-called mock-cables. The pattern has a high definition.
Sallkrae ja nööbiliistud tulevad hiljem. Aga on näha, et ka pahupool pole paha.
The shawl collar and button bands will come afterwards. You can see that there is nothing wrong wiht the wrong side.
Seljatükk
The back piece.
Küljel on väike muster.
There is a small stitch pattern on the sides.
Ravelrys alustasime täna kooskudumist. Kes tahab salli kududa, olete teretulnud siia.
We started a KAL on Ravelry today. If you want to make a scarf, you are welcome here.

Mis on valmis ja mis teoksil/Finished and under construction

Rätik sai valmis, praegu pildid sellised. Kannan seda hea meelega. Kui saab korralikke pilte, kirjutan pikemalt.
The shawl is finished and these are the pictures for now. I am rather glad to wear it. Once I will have proper pictures taken, I will write more.
 
 
Eile alustasin vesti (kingituseks). Tuleb sallkraega. Lõng on Hiiumaa villane, väga mõnus tõsine lõng.
Yesterday I started a vest (for a present). It will have a shawl collar. The yarn is wool manufactured in Hiiumaa, a very nice no-nonsense wool.
Praegu on olemas seljatüki osa ja parema esitüki osa.
For now I have a part of the back piece and a part of the right front piece.

Hilinenud 2016.kuduaasta kokkuvõte/Belated summary of the knitting year 2016

Nüüd kirjutan lõpuks, mis sai 2016.a. tehtud. See on poolpatendi aasta.
Finally, I am writing down what got done in 2016. This was a half-patent stitch year.
Ja rätikute aasta.
And a shawl year.
 
Peale selle õpetasin Tallinna Rahvaülikoolis, muidugi Mezgimo Zonas, aga ka Domus Linumis, seal oli lausa minikursus.
In addition to that I taught at Tallinn Folk University and of course at Mezgimo Zona and at Domus Linum store where I held a mini-course.
Uudne oli Buda Style Finland käsitöökruiis, ilmselt osalen ka 2017.a.
Burda Style Finland handicraft cruise was a novelty and probably I will take part in 2017, too.
Uudne koostöö oli YU Magazine'iga. 
Collaboration with YU Magazine was a novelty, too.
Plaane on mitmesuguseid. Koostöö Sadnes Garn Eestiga, hakkangi kohe sviitrit disainima. Kindlasti kavatsen ka arendada rätikute ja sviitrite konstruktsioone.
There are various plans. A collaboration with Sandnes Garn Estonia: I will immediately start designing a sweater for them. And certainly I will develop constructions of shawls and sweaters.
Need sviitrit on selle aasta lemmikkudumid. Loodan, et 2017.a. saab ka korralikult pildistada.
Thes sweaters are my favourite kntis of the year. I hope that in 2017 I will have them photographed properly.

Plaan muutub kogu aeg/Plans keep changing all the time

Esialgu oli mul plaan ära kasutada tumesinise Jili jääk. Hankisin juurde paar lõnga, mõtlesin, et teen rätiku või salli. Üks on sünteetika ja mohääri segu ja teine on selline lõng (sokilõnga koostisega, aga pisut jämedam, 50 g/150 m). Selle ostsin Maiu soovitusel, on tõepoolest üsna hea.
At first I had a plan to use up the leftovers of navy blue Jil. I got a couple of yarns to add to it and tought to make a shawl or a scarf. One of them is polyamide-mohair blend and the other one is this (fiber composition is like in sock yarns but slightly thicker, 50 g/150 m). I bought it on Maiu's recommendation and it is quite nice indeed.
Siis nägin, et Jiliga ei lähe hästi kokku (jämeduse vahe pole nii suur, aga see sõltub alati konkreetsest lõngast). Mõtlesin siis veel ühte mustrit, aga see ei töötanud, tundus liiga kohev. Eks jääb mõne peenikese lõnga tarvis. Proovisin nii ja naa, lõpuks jäin selle juurde. On natuke Kruiisirätiku moodi, aga siiski teistsuguse mustriga. Hiljem tuleb teine lõng..
Then I ralized that it does not fit together with Jil (the difference in weight is not so big but whether the yarn go well together, depends on the particular yarns). Then I considered another pattern but it did not work, it came out too fluffy. I will use it with some thinner yarn. I tried various things and then opted for this. Looks a little bit like my Cruise shawl but still with a different pattern. Later I will switch to another yarn.
Eks vaatame. Lähen reisile, rätik on hea reisikudum. Nädala jooksul ei pruugi ma postitada kuigi tihti. Võib-olla jääb kuduaasta ülevaade järgmisesse aastasse.
We shall see. I am going to travel and a shawl is a good travel knit. It is possible that I will not post often for a week or so. Maybe a summary of the current knitting year will appear early next year.
