Sall/Scarf

Kunagi TFW 2015 kollektsioonis oli selline sviiter:
Once long ago I had this sweater in my TFW 2015 collection:
Selle mustriga on nüüd valims sall ja tuleb ka sviiter, aga pisut teistsuguse tegumoega (sellest kunagi hiljem).
Now a scarf with this pattern is completed and I am making a sweater again but with a slightly different fit (will talk about it later).

Jälle kaksikud/Twins again

Mõni muster või mall hakkab meeldima ja lähebki nii, et kordan seda erinevate lõngadega. Poolpatentkoes sall on täielik klassika. Vasakpoolse salli põhilõng on peenike mohäär (100 g/1000 m), parempoolse oma aga Angora 2 (100 g/750 m). Kontrastne lõng on mõni peenvillane (100 g/1400 m või veel peenem).
Some stitch patterns or models become favourite and it happens so that I repeat them in different yarns. Half-brioche stitch scarf is classical. The main yarn in the one on the left is thin mohair (100 g/1000 m) and in the one on the right it is Angora 2 (100 g/750 m).  The contrasting yarn is some laceweight wool (100 g/1400 m or even thinner).

Kahepoolne/Reversible

See on tuttav muster. Koon praegu salli. Sallide puhul on oluline, et kumbki pool oleks viisakas. Muidugi see on maitseasi, mõnikord on nn pahem pool ilusam kui parem. Aga antud juhul ei vaidleks vist keegi vastu, et on kahepoolne muster.
This is a familiar stitch pattern. I am making a scarf now. It is relevant for scarves that both sides look decent. Of course it is a matter of taste, somtimes is so-called wrong side nicer than right side. But I doubt anyone would argue in this case that this is a reversible pattern.

Sügisvaade/Autumn view

Näitan klõpsu poolpatendis topist. Paistab ka sügis naabri aias
Here is a glimpse of the half-brioche stitch top.You can observe autumn in the neigbour's gardern, too.
Salliga on lugu nii, et kõik oli justkui kena, aga mulle tundus, et kude võiks olla õhulisem. Harutasin ära ja võtsin 5,5 mm vardad (enne kudusin 5 mm-ga). Nüüd tundub parem.
As for the scarf, everything looked fine but I had a feeling the fabric could be more airy. I ripped it and started over with 5.5 mm needles (pereviously I wokre with 5 mm). It looks better now.

Jälle sall/Scarf again

Mul on kaks poolpatentkoes salli teravate otstega. Kootud paar aastat tagasi. Eelmisel aastal tegin veel ühe kolleegile kingituseks.
I have two scarves with pointed ends in half-brioche stitch. I made them a couple of years ago. Last yer I made one more as a present to my colleague.
 
Praegu on töös selline sall (mitte midagi erilist, laius on kogu aeg sama). Lõngad on Angora 2 ja peenike villane. Kogu saladus ongi selles, et üks lõng on jämedam ja kontrastne on päris peenike. Eelmisete sallide puhul on põhilõng mingi sokilõng või poolvillane.
Now I have this scarf on my needles (nothing special, the width is constant). The yarns are Angora 2 and laceweight wool. This is the whole secret: one yarn is heavier and the contrasting yarn is quite thin. The previous scarf have sockyarn or wool-blend as the main yarn.

Poolpatent/Half-brioche

Jätkame poolpatendiga! See lühikeste varrukatega sviiter on tegelikult juba valmis, aga pildid on eilsed.
Carrying on with half-broiche! In fact, this short sleeved sweater is already completed but the pictures are from yesterday.
 
Õige värv on pigem alumisel pildil.
The true colour is rather in the bottom pic.

Selle sügise rätikuid ja salle/Some shawls and scarves of the Autumn

Mulle meeldib, et tahvelarvutis saab kerge vaevaga teha kollaaže. Mõtlesin, et kokkuvõtte mõttes panen kokku mõned rätikud ja sallid.
I like that tablet allows making collages in a very easy way. I decided to put together several shawls and scarves as a kind of sum-up.
Rohelise salli õpetus on tulemas.
A pattern for the green scarf is coming.

Poolpatent/Half-brioche stitch

Poolpatentkude on üks lemmikmustreid.
Half-brioche stitch is one of my favourite patterns.
Pildil ei paista, aga koos on keskmine hall Angora-2 ja hästi tumesinine peenvillane. Üldmulje on pigem tumehall.
The picture does not reveal that it is a combination of Angora-2 and a very dark blue laceweight wool. A general impression is rather dark-grey.
