Pärast mitmeid katsetusi/After numerous attempts

Mõnikord on nii, et kudum edeneb plaani järgi, esialgne idee töötab ja pole probleeme. Kuid mitte alati. Seekord oli mul esialgu selline plaan: teha ülaosa laiade triipudega (värvilised triibud pole minu rida, mõtlesin koepindade vaheldumist) ja siis kaenlaalustest allapoole kas ripsis või labases koes. Esialgu tegin 4 mustrikorda, tundus palju, harutasin ühe ära ja läksin üle labasele koele. Kõik oli ilus, aga proovisin selga ja vaatasin, et jälle ei meeldi. Sain aru: kui teha nii, et triibud oleksid kudumi ülaosas, siis peaksid nad olema kitsamad. Siis otsustasin, et olgu üleni triibuline. Varrukad aga ei tule triibulised, vähemalt esialgse kavatsuse järgi mitte.
Sometimes a project is progressing according to the plan, the initial idea is working and everything is unproblematic. But not always. This time I had the following plan: to make the upper part in broad horisontal stripes (colour stripes is not my thing, I am thinking alternation of textures here) and then starting from underarms either garter or stockinette stitch. At first I made 4 pattern repeats and it seemed too much, so I frogged one and started the stockinette part. Everything looked nice until I tried it on and realized that I don't like it. I understood that if I were to make the upper part in stripes, the stripes should be narrower. Then I decided I would opt for stripes throughout. The sleeves however will not be striped, at least according to the initial plan.
Täna lendan koju. Leedu reis oli tore, suvel olen jälle Vilniuses.
I am flying home today. My trip to Lithuania was lovely, I will be in Vilnius in summer again.
