Jälle algpunktis/Back to square 1

Tavaliselt on nii, et kui tekib kahtlus, siis peaks seda uskuma (antud juhul räägin ainult kudumisest, mitte elust üldse). Muidugi juhtub mõnikord ka nii, nagu oli ühe vestiga, aga see on pigem erand. Niisiis, eile õhtul proovisin selga ja mulle tundus, et kudum annab mulle juurde 10 kg ja teeb ümaramaks. Tean, et paljud hakkaksid kohe laginal naerma, aga asi pole selles, millised on kellegi kehaparameetrid, vaid selles, et optiliselt tekib massi juurde. Teadagi, mohäär on siiski karvane, mõni rohkem, mõni vähem. Täna hommikul tõmbasin jälle selga ja tegin pildi (vabandan kvaliteedi eest, aga probleem on minu arust nähtav).
Usually if doubts arise, you should take them seriously (I am talking exclusively about knitting now and not about life in general). Of course, some times you may end up like I did with this vest but this is rather an exception. So, yesterday I tried on and it seemed that the garment adds 10 kg and makes me more plump/round. I know that many would laugh out loudly hearing that but it is not about one's body parameters but exactly about optical effect of adding volume. It is clear that mohair is hairy, some brands more and some less. Today in the morning I pulled it on again and took some pictures (I apologize for the quality but the problem is visible, to my mind).


Siis arutlesime Suvi ja Dianaga nii ja naa. Üks variant oleks laiendada järsult taljest, et oleks täitsa lai seelik, aga siin on vähemalt kaks vastuväidet. Esimene: mohäär on kerge ja ei lange hästi, olen näinud selliseid kleite. Teine: nuku siluett 1950-ndate stiilis pole üldse minu rida. Niisiis, otsustasin ära ja tõmbasin vardad välja. Vaadake alumist pilti!

Then together with Suvi and Diana we deliberated on that. There is an option of abrupt increases from the waist line so that the skirt would be rather broad but there are at least two objections. First: mohair is light and does not drape or fall well, I have seen such dresses. Second: doll-like shape in the spirit of the 1950s is not my cup of tea. So I made up my mind and removed the needles. Look at the bottom picture!

Näete, et kasvatusi on juba niigi liiga palju. Niisiis, otsustasin, et seekord olgu sviiter. Harutasin taljeni ja koon sirgelt. Kindlasti pole see mõni eriline sviiter, aga üht lihtsat asja läheb ka vaja. Kleiti aga tahaks küll, mõtlen, mis lõngast teha, et see poleks suvine, samas aga mitte väga palav. Meeles keerlevad sokilõngad. Kui keegi oskab soovitada, oleksin tänulik.

You see that there are too much increases. Thus, I decided that it would be a sweater this time. I ripped up to the waist line and knit without increases. Of course it is not a special sweater but some times you need a plain thing, too. Still, I would like to knit a dress and I am pondering about yarns, so that it would not be a summer dress but also not too warm. My mind is busy with sock yarns. If anybody could give an advice, I would appreciate it very much.

Anna, I think you made a good decision to alter the current garment, although it looked very pretty. I think a simple sweater will be lovely! A dress in sock yarn sounds like a very long process, but intriguing. I have much admired the Wollmeise sock yarns but have not knit with them, I've also enjoyed using Dalegarn Baby Ull.

Анечка здравствуй! Знаешь, мне пришел в голову еще один вариант доработки этой туники (или платья). Если пышные юбки не твой стиль, то хочу спросить, а макси-юбки ты не носишь? Т.е. идея такова - связать макси-платье и носить поверх макси-юбки :) Я бы такое примерить не отказалась :)

Robin, thank you for your suggestions. So far I have used sock yarn for this dress: http://kuduja.blogspot.com/2011/03/kivi-ja-susistone-and-coal.html
It is nice but there are only 3-4 colour combinations and I am afraid this was the only one I could use. I am looking at Regia yarns as well.

Катюша, спасибо! Нет, я макси не ношу. Пусть платье будет из других ниток. А я уже сделала свитер, завтра смотри фото:).

Anna I am glad your found a solution. I think if it does not feel right to you then does not matter what anybody thinks, the dress would probably get little wear. I think a simple sweater will be very wearable. Actually, the cowl part makes the sweater not so simple ;-))

Diana, thank you for your support. Hopefully, some photos today! There will be a dress but from a different yarn.
