Terje`s lifelong knitting

no pattern, just knitting

Wednesday, September 29, 2004

I bought a new sweather today. For me. Made with 35% mohair. I newer can wait until I decide which sweater to knit for me. Also I am afraid when I finish, it is not good enough. So I went to the store and made a quick decision. And I am satisfied. Possibly when I could have a knitting mashcine....

This one I like too but seems like it is more intresting to knit by itself. Usual sweathet widhout any trik is not. It is the reason why I do not like to knit scarfs. Anyway, I made one, but really - it is not intresting( or creative?)

i am teacher!

Yesterday I was teaching my young relativ how to make "nupp-patent-kude". How is it Englisch? I do not know. It was`nt easiest pattern I have make. However after third trial already was. And then - I teached a woman who used pattern, but she knit tighter as pattern needs. How to work, when you have more stiches but a big desire to follow pattern. I know. However, I try to follow pattern, choose a suitable yarn or needle. I can say, my tightness is normal, like a norm or standard. I used to knit tight too when I was a freshmen and just started knitting. This fault is going better with every day. And my knitting history is`nt short.

I took a picture of my first piece of Devan-cardigan. Colors are not excakt those I prefered but they are blu and it is most important

Yesterday I made good progress working with blue sweather for Andres. Almost done, except the collar. It takes more time as all sweather together. Now it looks little bit different because I changed colors too. Not olny size. Yarn is mostly Novita 7 veljesta , a bit of homemade wool also.

I found the picture of Palma on the Novita page. Anyway, they were not in this place before I think, but Minna`s mail helped me. Lot of Thanks. After cardican I started scarf because this Yarn is perfect for this. Its like clouds or pure cotton on the bush. Soft and nice. I tryd to use an instructions for tam on the wrapping, but it does not working. Size is hugde again. Is my head smaller as usual? On the picture it seems like normal hat. Should I take another needles with smaller size?

Devan from knitty is started - it is a good idea, I like it.

I like a new Knitty. There are my favourites: Tigger and project I newer do: Hallowig.

Even I like it - excellent for bad hair day I have very often too. Our weather is bad and could the hat like this could be best solution. Seeing I am lost my red hat I made last year.

I sewed a zipper to the cardigan. It is not easy to find suitable zipper at all... 45cm zipper they just dont have. I bought shorter and sewed it. Now cardigan is ready to wear and Triinu went to school with this but I am not satisfied with. But she was.

Then I worked with Andres`s sweater andmade a good progress.

The blue cardigan for Triinu is almost done. Yesterday I spent time with needle and sewed the pieces together. Today I should find a suitable zipper. White or blue and thin and light. Because the yarn is light and cardigan also. When I use ordinary zipper, it is not comfortabe. Its designed my, there is not exstraordinary texture or colors or cutting the yarn makes all. Time a make a picture.

My english class in ILS started Yesterday. Teacher John is born in Southern England and lived in London, but he has been in Slovenia and Arabia (and in other countris I do not remeber) before he fall in Estonia. He is 65 yar old and really humorously. We all like him after first class.

Minna told in mail that in the Larina Lõngad shop is something going on. I checked out, there is a discount: 5% - 10%. They do not move or shot down, just discount connected with new staff, which is going somewhere in oktober. The salesperson told the additional alennus will be befor this also. Actually there was a good price for colored cotton and acrylic.

I started a blu cardigan for my daughter.This Yarn - NovitaPalma is very soft and nice to knit. 100% polyamide and 120 meters in ball. For back I made 40 stitch width nr 5 needles. Intresting is that on Novita webpage I couldnt find the pictures of yarn. Where they are? All the colors, all the sorts. Like a big secret.

I couldnt be a member of knitting webring, because ring is closed to new members. Temporarily. But as we all know temporarily things are always most constant. Is it good? is it bad? How good is to be a member of the ring. Could I be a member of Nordic Knitblog ring? Is Estonia the Nordic country at all?
