Eilne kooskudumine ja väike eksperiment/Yesterday's knitting together and a little experiment

Eile koos Avega käisime Karnaluksis. Läksin sinna üle hulga aja. Kuna oli laupäev ja lõunaaeg, siis võite ise arvata, mis seal toimus. Öelda, et oli palju rahvast, tähendab mitte midagi öelda. Siis läksime kuduma ja meie seltsi tuli Helin. Nagu näha, kõik on kudumisega ametis ja mõlemad koovad midagi mohäärist. Suur tänu seltsi eest!
Yesterday Ave and I went to Karnaluks. I went there after a long pause. As it was Saturday and midday, you can imagine what was going on there. To say that the shop was crowded would be an understatement. Then we went to knit and Helin joined us. As you can see, all are busy knitting and both are doing something from mohair. Thanks a lot for your company!
Poes vaatasin, et on väga palju puuvillaseid tikkimis- ja heegeldamislõngu. Värvigamma on tohutu. Otsustasin, et teen väikse katse. Puuvillane Red Heart Pearl Cotton on 10 g/80 m. Seega 100 g/800 m. Aga kui panna kokku kahekordselt, siis oleks juba päris viisakas.
In the store I saw they carry a lot of cotton for embroydery and crocheting. The range of colours is huge. I decided to make a little experiment. Red Heart Pearl Cotton has 10 g/80 m. It makes 100 g/800 m. If held double, it would be quite decent.
Ja nüüd tulemus. Ei ole võimatu. Vaatasin üle oma topid ja vestid. Midagi 400-500 m vahel oleks täiesti piisav. Ülemine muster on 24 silmust (2 mustrikorda x 11 silmust + 2 ääresilmust), alumine 23 silmust (2 mustrikorda  x 10 + 1 silmus sümmeetria jaoks + 2 ääresilmust). Pärast niisutamist ei veninud. Vardad 2,5 mm.
And now the result. Not impossible at all. I looked at my tops and vests, Something between 400-500 m would be quite enough. The upper sample has 24 stitches (2 repeats x 11 stitches + 2 edge stitches) and the lower one 23 stitches (2 repeats x 10 stitches + 1 stitch for the symmetry + 2 edge stitches). After moistening the swatches did not stretch. Needles 2,5 mm.

Anna, thank you for such a nice report!
I am looking for some cotton as well. I'd like to rework one of my designs that I've done for myself and make it as a pattern.

I really enjoy following your process of book knits. Good luck!

Lidia, thank you very much! The problem is that many manufacturers think that summer yarns = bleak/warm colours, however, this is not suitable for me. That is why I am experimenting and trying to find new possibilities.
