Olin reisil ja ei saanud normaalselt kirjutada. Nüüd räägin lühidalt paarist asjast, edaspidi kirjutan regulaarselt. Selles postituses mainisin, et Mia kinkis mulle lõnga.
I was away and could not write in a usual way for a variety of reasons. Now I will briefly talk about a couple of things and from now on will update regularly. I mentioned in this post that Mia had given me me some yarn as a present.
The yarn is a blend of cotton (70 %) and acrylic (30 %), 100 g/160 m. It is 4-ply yarn, of which the black threads are smooth and the dark-grey ones are slightly curly.
The name of the yarn is MarLen, produced in Czech Republic. It is clear that the yarn asks for something very simple and large needles. I noticed that the gauge for stockinette is approximately the same as in my recent top. So I used almost identical calculation and made a top and blocked it just before my trip. It is certainly dry by now and if everything is fine, I will show you proper pictures quite soon.
I was unable to knit properly during my trip and started a shawl for a couple of times, then I decided that so-called idiot-proof option is an asymmetrical shawl in half-brioche. It looks fine practically in any yarn. This one is linen by Midara, 100 g/600 m.
