Here are some pictures. I finished it yesterday and washed and the top dried quite fast. It is true, after washing the fabric became soft and falls nicely. It is itneresting that the edges of the armholes do not roll much after washing (so I was told by wise people: don't waste energy for finishing, this is what linen does after washing).
Panin kokku mõne ehtega, mis käepärast.
I combined the top with some jewelry I have here.
In the lower pictures you can see how linen fabric falls.
Kokkuvõtteks: pestes andis pisut värvi, kuid mitte oluliselt; lina kudumisega peab harjuma, aga kui tead lõnga omadusi, siis on väga kena. Kui tahta kihilist riietust, siis igasugu topid ja ürbid linast on lausa ideaalne valik. Loodetavasti leian täna pildistaja ja hiljem näidata "pärispilte".
To summarize: the colour ran a bit while washing but not too much; you have to get used to knitting linen but once you know the character of the fiber, it is very pleasent. If you want layered clothing, then all kind of linen tops and wraps is an ideal choice. Hopefully I will find someone to take modelled picutres and later show "real pictures".
Анечка, как удачно я зашла к тебе в гости!
очень симпатичная жилетка! Прекрасный дизайн!
Simple, yet very elegant top :-)) the color is so beautiful :-))
Labai grazu, Anna.
the blue here is definitely my favorite
it is interesting what you wrote about linen, i have never tried knitting it myself, but seeing the top i think i shoud hurry on and get some
Hello Ana. Was really nice to meet you at Sonata's shop and to follow the process this garment coming to life.Very nice and elegant result. Did you measured how much doe's this garment spindled after wash?
Atrodo labai gražiai! Tikiuosi šiandien pamatyti "gyvai" :)
Катюша, спасибо, надеюсь, скоро будут фотографии.
Deena, thanks, I know you love this colour too!
Anice, thanks, be sure that the linen you get is not too thin, in that case it is good for crocheting and machine knitting but not for hand knitting.
Ruta, thank you! I have not measured it but it has not dramatically lengthened. If, then very slightly.
Jurgita, dėkoju! Šiandien ir parodysiu:)
Sonata, ačiu, netrukus pasimatysime!
It is beautiful and elegant! Great job!
Kate, thank you very much!
