Meanwhile my daughter asked me to knit fingerless gloves for her. I had been thinking earlier that I could do something of the kind. She wanted black ones and, as strange as it may sound, there was black yarn in appropriate weight in my houshold (either mohair or laceweight yarn). I was in Helsinki and visited Menita yarn shop to get some advice. The saleswoman advised the yarn named Sisu (by Sandnes). Afterwards I thought that it could have been something more substantial but this is the very first experience and I hope to be wiser.
Pean ütlema, et oma käe (käte) pildistamine polegi lihtne. Mis muud kui Anu juurde!
I have to say that taking pictures of one's own hand(s) is not easy. Straight to Anu's then!
Nende piltide värvide eredus on pisut maas. Tegin meelega, muidu ei näe musta kudumi mustrit. Ei tea, kas see aitab.
The colour intensiveness in the pictures is somewhat downplayed. I did it on purpose, otherwise you cannot see the stitch pattern on the black. Not sure it helps though.
Lõng/Yarn: Sisu (Sandnes), 50 g/160 m, 80 % vill/wool, 20 % nailon/nylon, ~25 g
Vardad/Needles: 2,5 mm
Kokkuvõtteks: lõng pole paha, aga mustri jaoks oleks hea midagi tugevama keeruga. Muster on muidugi lollikindel vausabakiri.
To summarize, the yarn is not bad but something with a stronger twist would be better for a stitch pattern. The stitch pattern here is of course the error-proof horse-shoe stitch.
