Vest on valmis ja kuivab. Huvitav, kas see venib pikkusesse või mitte. Kuivades võib tunduda, et ta on pikemaks veninud, kuid päris lõplikult saab öelda alles siis, kui on ära kuivanud. Aga vaatame proovilappe!
The vest is finished and drying. I am curious whether it stretches in the length or not. While drying, it may appear to have stretched in the length but you can say after it will have dried. But let us have a look at the swatches!
Here are two yarns held dobule, merino and merino-polyacrylic blend. Both yarns are 100 g/1400 m, needles 3 mm. The yarns are equal, yet it appear that red is dominant (this is the merino blend).
While I was knitting the swatch, the fabric appeared somewhat loose but not impossible; let us say, quite sutiable for a throw-on-cardi or a scarf. However, after moistening the yarns have become "swollen" and the fabric is rather fine for a sweater. The swatch has not stretched in the width or in the length.
Here we have mohair with silk (25 g/210 m) and the same red yarn. Clearly, the black one is dominant. Nice soft and draping fabric. Needles 4.5 mm.
