Sviiter tütrele/A sweater for my daughter

Teen nüüd tütrele sviitri, see on selle kollase mitte-identne kaksik. Laiuses on tihedus enam-vähem sama, aga  kõrguses (s.o. ridade tihedus) mitte. Seetõttu on kalkulatsioon sarnane, aga mitte päris sama. Varrukatel on pisut teistsugune konstruktsioon, aga sellest kirjutan hiljem, kui on rohkem kootud.
I am making a sweater for my daugther, it is a non-identical twin of this yellow sweater. The gauge in the width is more or less the same but not in the hight (that is, row gauge). For this reason my calculations is similar but not exactly te same. The sleeves have a slightly different construction but I will write about this once I will have knitted some more.

Jakk on valmis/The cardi is completed

Nagu teate, vahepeal pidin pooleli jätma, sest lõnga ei jätkunud. Kudusin lõnga oodates muid asju. Sain valmis juba reedel, aga kahekordne linane lõng kuivab kaua ja ka praegu on jakk pisut niiske.
As you already know, I had to put it away for a while because I had run out of yarn. I knitted other things while waiting for the additional yarn to arrive. The cardi was completed already on Friday but it takes a lot of time for linen held double to dry and even now the cardi is slightly moist.
 
 
 
 
Lõng/Yarn: linane/linen (Siūlas), 100 g/500 m, ~ 500 g (kahekordselt/held double)
Vardad/Needles: 3 mm

Veel salli pilte/More pics of the scarf

Sall tuli tõesti kerge ja meeldiv. Teen sellise veel Adele's Mohair lõngast (aga mitte mohäärist, vaid peenikesest meriinost). Õpetus tulemas. Plaanidest kirjutan järgmises postituses, sest ootamatult on tekkinud järjekord.
The scarf turned out really light and pleasant. I will make another of the kind from Adele's Mohair yarn (but not from mohair, rather from thin merino). Pattern is coming. I will write more about my plans in one of the nest posts because the queue has grown somehow unexcpectedly.
Alljärgnevate piltide värv on õige.
The colour in the following pictures is true.
 
 
 
Lõng/Yarn: Aade Lõng 8/1 (100 g/800 m), ~ 83 g (664 m)
Vardad/Needles: 4,5 mm

Sall on valmis/The scarf is completed

Pärast pesemist ja pingutamist tekkis mõnus koepind. Mõõtsin salli enne pesemist: 38 cm x 164 cm. Pärast pesemist on 38 cm x 202 cm. Nii et augulise mustri puhul peab arvestama, et venib pikkusesse. Kududes rullusid ääred mingil määral, pärast pingutamist enam mitte. Puhas villane on ikka väga tänuväärne lõng.
After washing and blocking the fabric became very pleasant. I measured the scarf prior to washing: 38 cm x 164 cm. After washing and blockin it is 38 cm x 202 cm. So you should count on stretching in the length after washing. While knitting, the edges were slightly curling but not after blocking. Pure wool is such a prescious fiber.
 
 
 
Hiljem pildistan ka õues.
Later I will take pictures outdoors.

Uuesti/Again

Kollase villase salli pidin alustama otsast peale. Ei tundunud õige. Nüüd vist sain järje peale.
I had to start the yellow scarf all over again. It did not seem right. Now it appears working.
 
Hiljem tuleb ka õpetus. Samuti tuletan meelde, et 29.09 toimub rätikute konstrueerimise töötuba, osalejad saavad tasuta uhiuue õpetuse.
There will be a pattern later. This is also to remind that 29.09 I am teaching shawl construction class and the participants will get a free brand-new pattern.

Isekalduv/Self-slanting

Sain rätiku valmis, ei ole veel kaalunud, arvan, et kulus umbes 60-70 g, ehk 500-600 m vahel.
The shawl is finished and I have not yet weighed it, I think about 60-70 g or about 500-600 m was used up.
 
 


 
Õige värv on esimesel pildil. Õpetus tulemas.
The true colour is in the first picture. Pattern coming.

Stockholmi rätik/Stockholm shawl

Burda Style Finland käsitöö kruiisi jaoks disainitud rätiku (Stockholm Shawl) õpetus on Ravelrys üleval.
The pattern for Stockholm Shawl for Burda Style Finlad handicraft cruise is live on Ravelry.
Nagu kogemus näitab, võib kududa ka linasest või villasest lõngast (alumisel fotol on linane variant Mezgimo Zona jaoks).
As extablished, you can use linen or wool (a linen version for Mezgimo Zona store in the bottom picture)

Sama Angora 2-st/The same from Angora 2

Mul on Domus Linumist ka helesinist Angora 2 lõnga. Mõtlesin, et proovin sama mustrit sellest lõngast. Vardad on lausa 6 mm, see muster tahab jämedat varrast.
I also have some light blue Angora 2 from Domus Linum. I thought to try the same pattern in this yarn. I am using 6 mm needles because this stitch pattern requires thicker needles.
 
 
Pildil tundub peaaegu valge, aga tegelik värv on helesinine. Rätik kasvab kiiresti.
It appears almost white in the pictures but in reality it is lgiht-blue. The shawl is growing fast.

Jätkame/Carrying on

Veel paar salli pilti. Ja must-valge on ikka väga hea variant, värve ei näe, aga näeb tekstuuri jms.
Some more pics of the scarf. And black-and-white photo is such a good option: although you cannot see colours, you see the texture.
 
Alustasin veel ühte nn isekalduvat rätikut, see on Aade Lõng 8/1-st, Domus Linum poe jaoks. Lõnga tõi tütar oma maakodust, eelmiselt omanikult on maamajas jäänud palju lõngajääke. Sain kohe aru, et see on just see lõng. Võrreldes esimese variandinga on siin üks väike muutus. Õpetus tuleb septembri lõpus.
I started yet another so-called self-slanting shawl, it is from Aade Lõng 8/1 wool for Domus Linum. My daughter brought the yarn from her country house, as the previous owner had left behind a lot of yarn leftowers. I immediately identified the yarn. Compared to the first version, there is a minor modification. Pattern coming in the end of September.
