Lumehelbed kuuseokstel. Snowflakes on a fir tree


Selle aasta esimene lõpetatud kudum on teie ees! Alguse said need sõrmikud tegelikult küll juba 2016. aastal. Ühtegi mustrit ma ei kasutanud, valisin lihtsad kindakirjad ja improviseerisin kudumise käigus. Allolevalt pildilt on näha, et modell muutus sessiooni ajal veidi vallatuks. 

This year's first finished project is here. Actually I started those gloves already in 2016. I didn't use any pattern, just chose some simple colorwork motifs and improvised while knitting. On a photo below you can see that the model started to enjoy the photo shoot. 


Kasutasin meriinovillaseid lõngasid. Valge on Lana Cervinia Merino Superfine, roheline on Idena Bambino Ull, mille värvisin roheliseks punaste kressiõitega. Kokku kulus 66 grammi lõnga, vardad olid 2.5 mm.

I used merino wool. White is Lana Cervinia Merino Superfine, green is Idena Bambino Ull which I dyed green using red monks cress blossoms. In total I used 66 grams of yarn, needles 2.5 mm.

Mütsi õpetus saadaval! Hat pattern available!

Eelmises postituses nähtud mütsi muster on nüüd ingliskeelsena saadaval. Kui keegi tunneb huvi eestikeelse õpetuse vastu, siis andke teada ja tõlgin ka eesti keelde. Link.

The hat I showed in the previous post is now available as a pattern. Here is the link

It is a perfect hat for using up your sport-weight leftovers. You don't have to stick to two colors only. It's easy to adapt the pattern for more colors. Let your fantasy fly! Also, stranded hat are very practical for winter. Stranded knitting creates this extra layer that keeps your head really warm. 

Have a great knitting!

Täpid. Dots


Mul on eriline nõrkus halli värvi vastu ning mul puudus garderoobist hall müts. Lõngakorvis olid mõned jäägid, millest kokku sai selline müts. Lõngadeks on Drops Alpaca (tumedam) ning Schahenmayr Soft Mix (heledam). Vardad 3 mm (sooniku jaoks) ja 4 mm.

I have special relationship with grey color - I just really like it. I didn't have a grey hat in my wardrobe and I had some grey leftovers in my stash. Result is here. Yarns that I used were Drops Alpaca (darker) and Schahenmayr Soft Mix (lighter). Needles 3 mm (for the ribbing) and 4 mm.

Lõheroosad lehed. Salmon pink leaves


Pärast kampsuni kudumist tahtsin teha midagi väikest ja kiiret. Sõrmikuid on alati vaja ning lõngavarudest vaatas vastu üks lõheroosa lamba-alpaka segu. Ravelrys ideid otsides jäid silma need toredad lehed. Originaalmuster ei ole sõrmikute jaoks, aga seda pole raske sõrmikuteks ümber teha.

After finishing the sweater I showed in the last post, I wanted to make something small and quick. I think I could never have too much gloves because they also wear out quite often. I had this salmon pink alpaca and wool mix in my stash and when I saw these mitts on Ravelry, the decision was made. The original pattern is for mitts and not for gloves but it's not hard to adjust it. 

Lõng / yarn: Bergère de France Lima, 50 g
Vardad / needles: 3 mm
Muster / pattern: Three Leaf Mitts

Sügis, värvid ja vill. Autumn, colors and wool


Eelmises postituses näidatud kampsun on nüüd ka parematele piltidele püütud. Mul õnnestus fotosessioon nädalavahetuse ainsale päikselisele momendile ajastada ning viimast sügissoojust nautida.

The sweater from the last post has made it to the additional photos (got a permission from the cat). I managed to time the photo session to the few sunny hours during the weekend. It was a nice moment to catch some last autumn sun rays. 


Lõngadeks on Taanist pärit Uldgaarden Shetlandsgarn (sinine ja pruun) ning kollane on Aade lõnga 8/2, mille kunagi ammu taimedega kollaseks värvisin. Vardad olid 3.5 mm ning lõnga kulus kokku 260 grammi.

I used Danish Uldgaarden Shetlandsgarn (blue and brown) and Estonian Aade Lõng 8/2 that I colored myself using plants long time ago. Needles were 3.5 mm and I used in total 260 grams of yarn. 


Kasutasin mustrit Højbjerg Pullover, kuid muutsin selle kardiganiks. Katsetasin esimest korda steeke ehk valmis kampsuni lahti lõikamist. Tundus hirmutav, aga tegelikult polnudki nii keeruline. Vaatasin Youtube'ist mitu videot ning otsustasin heegeldatud steekide kasuks (crochet steek). Pärast kasutasin lahtiste lõngaotste kinnitamiseks viltimisnõela.

 I used the pattern Højbjerg Pullover but turned it into a cardigan. For the first time in my life I used steeking technique. It basically means cutting your finished sweater. It sounds scary but actually isn't that difficult at all. I watched several videos on Youtube and decided to do a crochet steek. I needle felted the cut yarns to secure them.

Kassi uus lemmik. Kitty approved


Vähemalt kassile mu uus kampsun meeldib. Kui kass kampsuni vabastab, saab täiendavaid pilte ka teha.

At least my kitty likes my new sweater. Hopefully I will manage to take some additional photos soon (if the cat allows).

Suvetöö. Summer job


Lõpuks ometi saan näidata kardigani, mida olen vahelduva eduga kogu suve jooksul kudunud. Kasutasin musta meriinost pitsilõnga, mis muutis kudumise väga pikaajaliseks protsessiks.

Finally I'm ready to show what I've been busy with the most of the summer. I made this cardigan out of black lace weight merino yarn. As you can imagine it took quite some time to finish it. 


Kasutasin Drops'i disaini Feathers, kuid otsustasin nööpe mitte lisada. See on ainus muudatus, mille tegin.

I used a pattern by Drops - Feathers. I decided not to have buttons on this cardigan. That's the only change I did compared to the original design. 


Lõngaks oli Austermann Merino Lace, kulus 65 grammi. Vardad olid 3 mm.
