Nagu alati, oli neljapäeval kooskudumine Mezgimo zona poes. Mitmed siinsed kudujad on lahkesti nõustunud valmis kuduma selle rätiku. Pildil on mul käes Audronė kootud rätik.
As always, knitters got together on Thursday at Mezgimo zona. Several local knitters have kindly agreed to knit this shawlette of mine. In the piture I am holding the shawl knitted by Audronė.
Peale selle käisin Diteksas-nimelises poes. Olen kirjutanud sellest ka varem. Siin on mitmesugused mohäärid.
I also went to the Diteksas yarn shop. I've written about it earlier. Here are various mohair yarns.
And here are laceweight yarns, wool, wool blends etc. So one can pick and mix an appropriate combination, for instance, 1 thread of mohair, 2 threads of laceweight wool.
Here is merino and alpaca blend, pure merino, cashmere and so on.

For many people (by the way, including some fashion analysts) knitting is a funny, calm and granny-related activity. Not that I have anything against knitting by grannies but people do knit for a variety of reasons with a variety of goals (you can read about it here and here).
