Olen hommikune inimene ja tean, et õhtul ei tasu mul midagi tõsist otsustada. Sain sviitri valmis, niisutasin, panin kuivama. Õhtul oli peaaegu kuiv, tõmbasin selga ja ehmatasin: sviiter oli veninud pikkusesse 15 cm, eriti koomilised olid varrukad. Kaelus tundus laiavõitu. Mohääri harutamine pole eriti lõbus asi, eriti mitte mahakudumisääre puhul. Mõtlesin juba, et kingin kellelegi, kellele suured asjad meeldivad. Ja üldse tekkis kahtlus, äkki oleks pidanud tegema labases koes klassikalise varrukaga sviitri. Pidasin nõu Maiuga, kes ütles, et tal on samuti juhtunud nii, aga mõni kudum läks normaalseks, kui oli täeisti ära kuivanud.
I am a morining person and I know that I should not make any serious decisions in the evening. I finished the sweater, made it wet and put to dry. In the evening it was almost dry, I tryed on and was shocked: the sweater had stretched 15 cm in the length and the sleeves looked especially funny. The neck opening seemed a bit too loose. Ripping mohair and bind-off edge in particular is not exactly a fun job. I started thinking that I would give it as a present to someone who likes oversized garments. And in general I started pondering whether it should have been a stockinette stitch sweater with a classical set-in sleeve. I asked Maiu's advice and she told me she had experienced the same but some knits went back to normal onece they were dry.
In the morning it was actually quite fine. The sleeves were still a bit long but about 5-8 cm so and not 15 cm. The bottom seemed fine. I will decide whether 2-3 cm are critical or not. The neck opening was fine. I ripped the sleeves for the required length and it was not especially tedious.
3 yarns are held together: Roma (wool, 100 g/750 m), thin mohair (100 g/1000 m) and laceweight merino Loden (100 g/150 m). I got some additional Roma from Maiu and used up 7-8 g in addition to the 100 g ball. The mohair is a leftover from Diteksas and I found in WW a substitute named Astor (the colour was a perfect match and it is possible that it is exactly the same yarn because Diteksas carries Igea merchandise from time to time). The fabric is slightly fluffy but not excessively so because smooth yarns are dominant. Needles 4.5 mm (torso), 5 mm (sleeves), 4 mm (ribbing).
