Jälle soonikutest/On ribbing once again

Mõne teema juurde tuled ikka tagasi. Eelmisel aastal uurisin, mida mu sõbrad soonikutest arvavad ja kirjutasin siin. Hiljuti kudusin lihtsa kampsuni, kus nööbiliist on lai soonik.
One keeps returning to certain topcs. Last year I aksed what my friends think about ribbing and wrote about it here. Recentrly I knitted a simple cardi where button band is in broad ribbing.
Need, kes jälgivad seda blogi ja minu kudumist, teavad, et kasutan soonikut vähe. Ei kasuta seda funktsionaalse, vaid dekoratiivse elemendina. Kudum võib olla üleni soonikus, siis see on disaini element.Üleni patent- või poolpantent koes mohäärisviitrid on hea näide. Võite otsida internetist pilte märksõnaga "poor boy sweater" ("vaese poisi sviiter").
Those who follow this blog and my knitting know that I usually use ribbing quite sparingly. I don't use it not as a functional but rather as a decorating element. A knit can be entirely in ribbing, in which case it is a design element. Mohair sweaters in all over patent or half-patent stitch are a nice example. You can try searchin interenet for "poor boy sweater".
See kudum on soonikus. Põhimuster on sooniku variatsioon ja all on pikk soonik. Pikk sooniku osa mõjub teisiti, kui tavaline, paari sentimetrine soonik. Huvitav, et kui plaanisime Mattisega TFW kollektsiooni, arutasime ka soonikuid ja talle meeldis ripskoes või pärlkoes äär.
This knit is in ribbing. The main pattern is a variety of ribbing and a longer section in ribbing is below. A longer section of ribbing has a different effect as compared to just a couple of centimetres in ribbing. It is interesting that when we discussed our TFW collection with Mattis, we talked about ribbing as well and liked edging in garter stitch or moss stitch better.

Jälle kahepoolne/Once again reversible

Ka see muster on kahepoolne. Parem ja pahem pool on peaaegu samasugune.
This pattern is reversible as well. Right and wrong side are almost identical.
Lõng on Teksrena villane (Leedu), 100 g/350 m.
The yarn is Teksrena wool (Lithuania), 100 g/350 m.

Kiire postitus: madala õlajoonega ja nahkhiiire varrukaga kampsunid/A quick post: dropped shoulder dolman sleeve sweaters

Aega ei ole, seetõttu kirjutan praegu lühidalt. Eile oli viimane tund Rahvaülikoolis. Tänan kõiki osalemast! Arutasime muuhulgas ka nahkhiire-tüüpi kampsuneid ja konstrueerimisvõimalusi. Olin enne paarist poest läbi astunud ja näinud, et selliseid kudumeid on üsna palju ja selle asemel, et osta, oskame nüüd ise kududa. Aga midagi on õhus ja nüüd leidsin  mõningaid pilte ja panin Pinteresti. Praegu postitan mõned siia.
I have no time and for this reason I will be brief. Yesterday I taught the last class at Folk University. Thank you all for participating! Among other things, we discussed dolman sleeve sweaters and constructions thereof. I had visited a couple of stores before and see that there are plenty of such knits and instead of buying we know how to knit them. But something is in the air and I've found several pictures and put them on Pinterest. Some of them are here.

Ja vaadake seda: Rick Owens 2014. Mis on selle kudumi hind?!
And look here: Rick Owens 2014. What is the price of this knit?!
Number on neljakohaline. Kui ei usu, käige kodulehel vaatamas.

Kahepoolne muster ja homne tund/The reversible pattern and tomorrow's class

Kahepoolse mustriga sviiter kuivab nüüd. Otsustasin, et kannaks ise n-ö pahupidi, see sobib mulle rohkem.
The sweater with the reversible pattern is drying now. I've made up my mind that I will wear it so to say wrong side out, it suits me better.
Varrukas on poolenisti ripskoes.
One half of the sleeve is in garter stitch.
Ja siin on varruka alumine äär, ka paar ringi ripskoes.
And here is the bottom of the sleeve with a couple of rounds of garter stitch.

Homme on mul Tallinna Rahvaülkoolis viimane tund, mis on plaanitud konsultatsioonina. Kuna eelmine kord rääkisime sallkraedest, näitan veel oma viimast jakki ja arutame seda ka. Kui kahepoolne sviiter on ära kuivanud, siis võtan kaasa. Vaatame, mida keegi koob ja vastan küsimustele. Ühtlasi palun mõelda, kas tahaksite jätkata või soovite hoopis midagi koos kududa.
Tomorrow at Tallinn Folk University I have the last class that is planned as a questions-answers session. Since we spoke about shawl collars last time, I am going to show my recent jacket and we shall talk about it. If the reversble sweater is dry by that time, I will bring it. We shall see who knits what and I will answer questions. Also please think whether you want to continue or you'd rather knit something together.

Kahepoolne/Reversible

Õmblusteta kudumise eelis on see, et pole õmbluseid. Mis siis sellest, see on ju täiesti ilmne! Aga see tähendab muuhulgas, et kui koepind on mõlemalt poolt ilus, siis võib kanda sviitrit kord nii-, kord naapidi, sest tehnilises mõttes pahupool puudub. Mõnikord on nii, et isegi labase koe puhul ei suuda kudumise alguses otsustada, kumb on n-ö õige. Juhtub, et labane pahempidine on hoopis huvitavam (sõltub muidugi lõngast). Siin on praeguse kudumi teine pool (palun ignoreerida värvi, see on tegelikult must!).
One of the advantages of seamless knitting is the fact that there are no seams. So what, it is selfevident! But, among other things, it means that if the fabric looks nice on both sides, you can alternate the ways you wear the sweater because wrong side is technically absent. Sometimes it happens that I am unable to decide in the beginning of my knitting which side of the stockinette fabric is the so-called right side. It occurs that reverse stockinette looks much more interesting (of course, it depends on the yarn). Here is the reverse side of my current knit (don't pay attention to the colour, in reality it is black!).
Kudum edeneb, varsti saab valmis teine varrukas ja siis tuleb kududa kere osa.
The knit is progressing: the second sleeve will be finished soon and then I will work on the torso.

Töös & TFW pilte/Under construction and TFW pictures

Võrratu Aade Lõng 8/3 on jälle töös. Tulemas on lihtsa mustriga sviiter.
The superb Aade Lõng 8/3 is in use again. A sweater with a simple pattern is under construction.
Ühtlasi annan teada, et Tallinna Moenädalate stuudiopildid on valmis. Fotograaf Meeli Laidvee. Suur tänu! Kes tahab näha pilte kõigist kudumitest, palun Pinteresti või minu albumisse Facebookis. Nüüd on mul disaineri lehekülg olemas ka Facebookis.
And for your information, Tallinn Fashion Week studiophotos are ready. Photography by Meeli Laidvee. Many thanks! If you wish to see pictures of all knits, please visit me on Pinterest or my album on Facebook. Now I have a designer's page on Facebook as well.
See kampsun meeldis paljudele ja ilmselt tuleb ka õpetus. Rõngassalli õpetus on olemas Ravelrys.
This cardi is liked by many and probably there will be a pattern. The pattern for the cowl is available on Ravelry.
