Teised minust/Others about me

Ajakirja Hello toimetusele tuli pähe hea mõte: nimelt moerubriigis rääkida käsitöö tegijatest. Arusaadav, et Eestis on palju käsitöötegijaid, kudujaid on väga erinevat laadi (stiil, sihtgrupp, põhjused, miks keegi käsitööd teeb jms). Natuke juttu on ka minust. Piltidel võib klikkida ja suurendada.
The editors of Hello magazine came upon a birght idea: namely, to talk about crafters on the fashion pages. It is clear that there are many crafters in Estonia and knitters are rather diverse (as far as style, target group and reasons why one knits are concerned). There is a paragraph about me (Estonian only). You can click on the pictures and magnify them. Here is a rough translation into English: 
"A linguist and a passionate knitter Anna enjoys creative freedom: "I've never knitted from a pattern". At the same time she is generous in sharing her ideas and patterns. Anna approaches knitting with precision of a scholar and innovativeness of an artist: "For me, there are two aspects in knitting. One of them is style. In knitting you have to appreciate technical-visual side, like optimal length or optimal shape of the neckline. But you have to consider style and association related matters: what associatios a particular knit creates and what impression of the wearer one gets. The second aspect is technical, namely, construction of a knit. I approach knitting like an architect and teach in my book how to create a seamless shape and share my views on my blog as well"."

Kooskudumine/Knitting together

Olime täna ainult kahekesi Üllega. Üllel on loomulikult käsil uus rätik.
Today there were only two of us, Ülle and myself. Of course, Ülle is in the middle of a new shawl.

Ja minul on tuleva kudumi proovilapp.
And I have a swatch for the next knit.

Konstruktsioon töötab/The construction works

Konstruktsioon toimib kenasti. Esialgu läksin hoogu kasvatustega, iseenesest poleks selles midagi halba, aga lõng on suhteliselt jäme ja siis tekkisid paksud voldid. Harutasin pisut tagasi, nüüd on korras.
The construction works fine. In the beginning I was carried away with the increases; nothing critical in itself but the yarn is relatively bulky and there would be thick folds. I ripped a little bit and now iti is fine.

Üks pilt/A picture

Sviiter on valmis. Tuli välja, nagu tahtsin. Paistab, et krae kudumine kahekordsest lõngast on hea nõks. Hakkan ka õpetust kirjutama. Kulunud on täpselt 4 tokki mohääri, neist terve tokk (kahekordselt) kraele ja meriinot ilmselt alla 50 g  (alla 750 m).
The sweater is finished. It turned out as I wanted. It appears that knitting the collar with the yarn held double is a useful trick. I will start writing the pattern. I used up exactly 4 balls of mohair, of which one ball entirely for the collar (yarn held double) and probably less than 50 g of merino (less then 750 m).

Jälle kraest/On collar once again

Selle postituse loogiliseks jätkuks. On ka selline võimalus, et krae võib kududa kahekordse lõngaga (ja muidugi jämedamate varrastega). Hiljem võib vardaid veel jämedamate vastu vahetada.
A logical development of this post. There is also a possibility to knit the collar with the yarn held double (and, of course, with thicker needles). Later on you can switch to even thicker needles.
 
Mohäär on võetud kahekordselt ja vardad on 5,5 mm, hiljuti vahetasin 6 mm vastu.
The mohair is held double and the needles were 5.5 mm and just recently I've witched to 6 mm.
