Rätik ei mahu pildile/A shawl does not fit into the picture

Sest ta on igavene suur! Ei suutnud välja mõelda, kuidas pildistada. Praegu on vardad sees ja neid on üsna palju.
Because it is so large! I was unable to come up with an idea how to photograph. Now the needles are still in and there are several of them.
Akalaual on rohkem valgust, aga pidin kokku murdma, nii et siin on umbes pool rätikut.
There is more light on the window ledge but I had to fold the shawl to fit it, so here you see aproximately a half of the shawl
Rätik on suhteliselt paks. Lõngadest kirjutan teine kord. Tundub, et konstruktsioon töötab, peaks proovima peenematest lõngadest.
The shawl is relatively thik. I will write about yarns another time. Apparently, the construction works and I have to try it from some thinner yarns.

Viimane tund Tartus ja rätik/My last class in Tartu and the shawl

Täna oli mul Tartu Rahvaülikoolis viimane tund. Väga kena rühm oli. Pildistasin mälestuseks kursuse reklaami.
Today I had my last class at Tartu Folk University. It was a very nice group. I took a picture of the course advertisement.
Rätik sai valmis, tegin paar kiirpilti. Üsna kerge, mõnusa koepinnaga. Peenikest suvelõnga võiks rohkem saadaval olla.
The shawl is finished and I took a couple of quick pictures. It is rather light and the fabric is pleasant. I wish more light summer yarns were available.

Rätik/A shawl

See on tellimus. Tegin umbes sarnase eelisel aastal, pilte ei olegi. Juhtus aga nii, et tellija tütar omastas rätiku ja on vaja uut.
This is an order. I made a similar one last year and there are no pictures. It happened so that the client's daughter appropirated the shawl and now there is a need for a new one.

 
Lõng on Amber (Midara), 100 % puuvill, 100 g/660 m. Vardad 3 mm. Lõng on üpris pehme, samas piisavalt peenike. Seda võiks ka millegagi kombineerida, kui tahta sviitrit või toppi.
The yarn is Amer (Midara), 100 % cotton, 100 g/660 m. Needles 3 mm. The yarn is quite soft and thin at the same time. It can be comined with another yarn if one wants a sweater or a top.

Tibukollane sviiter on valmis/Chicken-yellow sweater is finished

Saingi valmis, nagu kavatsesin. Niisutamisel ei veninud sviiter välja, sobib selga.
I finished it as intended. After moistening it did not stretch, everything fits.
 
 
 
 
Lõng/Yarn: Cotton 50 g/165 m, ~ 365 g.
Vardad/Needles: 3 mm, 3,5 mm.

Peaaegu/Almost

Tahan sviitri täna valmis saada. Peaks kuduma veel u 20 ringi ja sooniku.
I want to complete the sweater today. I have to knit about 20 rounds and ribbing.
Küljel on paar silmust ripskoes.
There is a couple of stitches in garter stitch on the side.
Arvasin, et saan küll 6 keraga valmis, aga nüüd alustan 7-ndat, seega kulub üle 1000 m. Aga sviiter on suhteliselt lai.
I thought that 6 balls would be enough but now I've just started the 7th, therefore, more than 1000 m will be used up. But the sweater is relatively wide.
