Selle aasta esimene kudum on Raasiku villasest ja triibuline. Sellest tuleb põiki kootud seelik. Värvid on täitsa valed, tegelikult on lilla lillakam ja sinine sinisem.
The first knit of the year is from Raasiku wool and it is striped. This will be a skirt, knitted sideways. The colours are completely wrong, in reality, purple is more purple and blue is much darker.
When I swatched, it appeared that the black stripes could be isolated and not 3 at a time. I knitted in this way for a while and then realized that it was somehow uniteresting. I decided to re-knit in the way it is now in the picture. Another example of how a swatch can be misleading.
It is helpful to wind variegated yarn in such a manner that you would see the colour changes. So far I had to "interfere" only once when a black stripe would have been in the middle of the black-blue section.
