Vahepealne/In between

Vahepeal palus tütar endale sõrmedeta kindaid. Olin juba varem mõelnud, et midagi sellist võiks kududa. Ta soovis musta värvi ja kummaline küll, ei leidunud mu majapidamisest paraja paksusega musta lõnga (kas mohäär või pitsilõng). Olin Helsingis ja läksin Menita poodi, uurisin asja. Müüja soovitas Sisu-nimelist lõnga (firma Sandnes). Pärast tundus, et võiks olla midagi toekamat, aga see on esimene kogemus ja edasi olen targem.
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.
Pildid/Pictures: Anu
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.

Ilusad ja varsti on nende hooaeg tõesti käes. Mulle meeldib see taustal olev samblaroheline kampsun ka

Signe, tänan! Tütar vaatas pilte, talle meeldis, siis on korras. Aitäh, kampsun on päris soe, kootud Raasiku 8/2-st kahekordselt suure vardaga.

Emanuela, thank you!

Anna, great job on these, I cannot believe they are your first pair!

Robin, thank you! My daughter liked them (at least, the view of them:)). I wanted to be on the safe side and chose the pattern that is simple and universal. Sure, will make more of them!
