Despite the heat I have to think about thick yarns, too. In this case, it is not my choice, otherwise I would knit only mohair or rayon-blend at this point. Still, I must say the challenge is attractive. It is an extremely thick pure wool and picking up the right needle size took some time.
Lõng seab teatud piiranguid. Sobiv vardanumber on 10 mm. Järelikult augud ei kõlba. Palmikud ei ole iseenesest võimatud, kuid niigi paks kude muutuks veelgi paksemaks. Ma ei saa praegu pikemalt rääkida sellest kudumist, näitan vaid proovilappi lahendusega.
The yarn sets limitations. The right needle size is 10 mm. Therefore, holes are not welcome. Cables are not impossible as such but the fabric is thick enough and would become even thicker. I cannot talk more about the project right now but I show a swatch with my solution.
Mohäärikudum (peenike) edeneb ka. Pilt pole eriti informatiivne. Seletuseks niipalju, et kereosa on peaaegu valmis, oleks vaja veel 2-3 mustrikorda.
The mohair project (the thin one) is progressing as well. The picture is not very informative. To be more specific, the torso part is almost finished, I need 2-3 repeats more.
Nii et kui öeldakse "paks lõng", peaks alati täpsustama ja nõudma konkreetseid arve. See sviiter on kah paksust lõngast, ometi mitte nii paksust nagu praegune. Sama kehtib ka "väga peenikese lõnga" kohta.
Thus, when someone says "thick yarn", it is always reasonable to be specific and to ask for particular figures. This sweater is from thick yarn as well, however, not as thick as the present one. The same goes for "very thin yarn".
