Mohääri rollist/On the role of mohair

Mõtlesin teha ühtmoodi, tuli aga teha teistmoodi. Nimelt on mul tumehalli Aade 8/2, tahtsin kududa mustriga jaki, mõtlesin juba välja, mis konstruktsiooniga, jäin mustrit valima. Aga mõnkord on nii, et naturaalne (värvimata) lõng on ebaühtlane, kohati läheb peenikeseks jms. Mis siis ikka, mustriga jakk tuleb mõnest teisest lõngast. Aga et ebaühtlasele lõngale jõulisust lisada, panin hulka musta mohääri. Pind on just selline, et labane parempidine kude näeb hea välja.
I intended to do it in a certain way but eventually had to do it in another way. Namely, I have dark-gray Aade 8/2 wool and wanted to knit a jacket with a lace pattern; I already had a certain construction in mind and started picking a pattern. However, sometimes natural (that is, not dyed) wool is somewhat uneven, sometimes it is rather thin etc. Anyway, the jacket with a pattern I had in mind will be from another yarn. In order to give some definition to the uneven yarn, I added black mohair. The fabric is just right for stockinette to show nicely.
Konstruktsioonidest räägime teine kord. Minu käest on küsitud, kas mul on nüüd kõik contiguous-meetodiga, vastasin, et õigupoolest mitte midagi. On teatud modifikatsioon, mille kohta küsisin vastavas Ravelry rühmas, aga selget vastust ei saanud, kas too on contiguous või mitte. Ilmselt on konstruktsioonide vastu laiem huvi ja kirjutan sellest hiljem.
I will talk another time about different construction. I have been asked whether I am knitting now everything according to the contiguous method and I answered that, in fact, I have nothing in this technique. There is a certain modification about which I asked in the respective group on Ravelry but I never got a clear reply whether it is contiguous or not. Apparently, there is a certain interest towards constructions and I will write later on this topic. 
Ja siin on need lõngad, mis sobivad kokku päris hästi. Tuleb üks soe kudum!
And here are the yarns that fit together rather nicely. It will be a warm piece of knitwear!

Mielenkiintoista nähdä, mitä tästä neuleesta tulee! Toteutat nyt ajatusta, jota olen jo jonkun aikaa pyörittänyt mielessäni: mohairin ja villan liittoa.

I love that you combining two different yarns. It gives nice texture to simple st.st. :-)) How are those plasic needles you are using feel compare to wooden or metall ones? I have never tried this type.

Mia, kiitos. Mohairi sopii hyvin yhteen silkin, viskoosin jm kiiltävän lankan kanssa, mutta myös villan kanssa. Villa voi olla sekä ohut (pitsilanka) että "vakava", kuten tämä. Karvoja ei näy ja tuntuu, kuten olisi pelkästään yksi monivärinen lanka.

Diana, thanks! Yes, I totally like the combination of the yarns. As for the needles, I have been working with them for a while. They are very good for mohair and, as you can see, for wool and mohair combination. However, needles preferences are individual. I know people who do everything with metal needles and those who prefer bamboo to anything else. I would not knit linen or rayon with anything but metal, for instance.
