Puuvillane sviiter/Cotton sweater

Järgmine postitus Mados Garažas/Diteksas poe blogi jaoks tuleb sellest sviitrist. Koon selle poe jaoks ja teen õpetuse, sviiter jääb poodi näidiseks.
The next post for Mados Garažas/Diteksas yarn store blog will be about this sweater. I am knitting it for the store and will write a pattern and the sweater will be a sample for the store.
Selle proovilapi tegin kohe poes 4 mm vardaga. Heledam lõng on puuvillane ja tumedam on puuvillase ja siidi segu. Vaatasin kodus, et 4,5 mm vardaga on parem kududa.
I made this swatch at the store with 4 mm needles. The lighter yarn is cotton and the darker one is cotton-silk blend. At home I realized that 4.5 mm would be better.

Rätik MZ poe jaoks/A shawl for MZ store

Hakkasin kuduma juba tuttavat mustrit Mezgimo Zona poe jaoks. Suvine variant võib vabalt olla linasest. Teatavasti algab ametlik kooskudumine originaallõngast augustis ja augusti teises pooles panen õpetuse Ravelrysse, siis saab igaüks kududa mistahes lõngast.
I started knitting a familiar pattern as a sample for Mezgimo Zona store. A summer version can easily be from linen. As you know, official KAL from the original yarn starts in August and in the second part of August I will upload the pattern on Ravelry, so anyone would be able to knit it from whatever yarn.

 
 
Tegelik värv ei ole nii tume, pigem jäise helesinise ja halli vahel.
The true colour is not as dark as it appears in the pics, it is rather between icy light blue and grey.

Vilniuses/In Vilnius

Jõudsin käia Mezgimo Zonas ja Diteksases, käin kindlasti veel palju kordi. Praegu hakkasin MZ jaoks kuduma rätikut, sellest räägin mõnes järgmises postituses ja näitan algust.
I had time to visit Mezgimo Zona and Diteksas and will do it more on several occasions. Right now I started knitting a shawl for MZ; I will discuss it in a future post and show the beginning.
 
 
Üleval on jämedam mohäär (must), minu selja taga kašmiiri ja villase segu ning puhas kašmiir.
On top there is some thicker mohair (the black one), cashmere and wool blend and pure cashmere is behind my back.
Topp on muide valmis, aga ilm on niiske ja kuivab väga aeglaselt. Loodetavasti saan järgmisel nädalal pildistatud.
The top is finished, by the way, but the weather is so damp and it dries very slowly. I hope to have some pictures taken next week.

Varsti saab valmis/It will be completed soon

Muster "koob end" väga hoogsalt, seetõttu topp kasvab kiiresti. Otsustasin, et jääb topiks, seda enam, et ma pole kindel, kas varrukateks jätkub lõnga. Ja sviitri teeksin juba mõnest muust lõngast (vill, mohäär + peenvillane, linane vms). Teen ilmselt ka õpetuse, jälgige infot. Teeme Ravelrys kooskudumise.
The pattern "knits itself up" quite swiftly, so the top is growing fast. I decided to leave it as a top, especially because I am not so sure I have enough yarn for the sleeves. And I would make a sweater from a different fiber (wool, mohair + laceweightwool, linen etc). Probably, I will write a pattern, so stay with me. We shall make a KAL on Ravelry.
Kaeluse viimistlesin i-cord-võttega, alumises ääres ja varrukatel teen ilmselt sama.
I made i-cord finishing for the neck opening and probably will do the same for the hem and the sleeves.

Täna sõidan Vilniusesse, seal on mitmeid plaane, kirjutan varsti. Diteksas (aka Mados garažas) ootab, plaanime varsti järgmist postitust. Mezgimo zonasse aga lähen juba täna õhtul.
I am travelling to Vilnius today, there are many plans, I will write soon. Diteksas (aka Mados garažas) is waiting, we are planning the next blog post shortly. Already in the evening I will visit Mezgimo zona.
Mano lietuviški skaitytojai, atvažiuosiu šiandien į Vilnių ir pasiliksiu menesiui. Susitiksime Vilniaus sūlų parduotuvėse!

Koon, harutan ja koon uuesti/I am knitting, ripping out and knitting again

Mõnikord on nii, et otseselt pole midagi viga, aga kudum on kuidagi ebahuvitav. Siis on targem harutada. See lõng on Jeans (Yarn Art), 70 % puuvill, 30 % akrüül, 50 g/160 m. Kuna lõng on suvelõnga kohta parajalt peen ja kuna värv on suvelõnga jaoks haruldane, ostsin ja mõtlesin tega väga lihtsa sviitri, midagi Triibiku moodi. Aga labane kude ei olnud ilus, kudum ei langenud hästi. Mul oli juba kere osa tublisti alla kootud ja üks varrukas peaaegu valmis. Harutasin üles ja hakkasin nuputama. Sain aru, et lõng ei taha reljeefseid pindu, midagi pole näha. Mitmed libapalmikud polnud ka kenad. Siiski leidsin mustri, mis sobib.
Sometimes you see that nothing is wrong but the knit is somehow uninteresting. In that case it is wiser to rip out.  The yarn is Jeans (by Yarn Art), 70 % cotton, 30 % acrylic, 50 g/160 m. As the yarn is quite thin for a summer yarn and as the colour is rare for a summer yarn, I bought it and planned to make a very simple sweater in the spirity of this one. But stockinette did not look nice and the fabric did not fall properly. I had already knitted a considerable part of the torso and one sleeve was practically completed. I ripped it out and started thinking. I realized that the yarn does not want textured patterns, you cannot see a thing. Several mock cable patterns did not look good either. Still I found a pattern that is suitable.
Kaeluse viimistlesin i-cord võttega. Soonik ei sobinud. Nüüd jätkan alla. Kui lõnga jätkub, teeksin sviitri, aga vaatame, kuidas välja kujuneb.
I finished the neck opening with i-cord. Ribbing did not fit there. Now I am going downwards. If I have enought yarn, I will make a sweater but we shall see how it goes.
