Misery Meadows?

Et ei tekiks arusaamatusi, ütlen kohe ära, et mulle hirmsasti meeldib Anna Dalvi Müstiline Aas. Nii et mustris eneses pole midagi kurbloolist. Kurblooline on lihtsalt see, et ma kudusin valmis esimese osa
(ühekordne Cashwool, valged pärlid) ja harutasin siis üles, kuna algus oli väga kribu (pildil proovilapp).
Ja siis kudusin uuesti
ja harutasin siis üles, kuna puuvillane ei meeldinud mulle.
Ja siis kudusin uuesti ja harutasin uuesti, sest ma ei vaja keeruka lillemustriga salli (kahekordne Cashwool, pärliteta).
Nii et ma koon seda praegu neljandat korda, paksust villasest lõngast ja suurte varrastega (vähemalt minu jaoks on 3,5 suur) ja olen seekord päris rahul.
Lõng on 4 keeruga Filati Campolmi imelisest vikerkaarevärvilisest kuhjast (võtaks sealt kohe kümnete kilodega). Käsil on juba rida 200, nii et seekord vist läheb õnneks.

Lisaks sellele on pooleli Casablanca sall (sinine masinalõng Filati Campolmi, vardad 3,75) ja varsti hakkan VIST kuduma Pearled Romance'i- nimelist imeasja (seal saan lõpuks ära kasutada Enrico imelise Cashwooli). Mis ma kõigi nende sallidega küll peale hakkan, seda ma ei tea. Aga no eks siis jõulukingitused ole sel aastal hooleta...
First af all, I LOVE Anna Dalvi's pattern for Mystic Meadows. The pattern itself is very far from beinga "misery" - I just have unraveled it 3 times already. But now I have changed yarn and am happy at last.
I also began a stole called Casablanca and will start soon a very beautiful Pearled Romance.


Interlüüd 2

The rules of the game are that each player answers the following five questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags five or six other people. The player should then notify those individuals that they have in turn been tagged. Also, once you have posted your answers, please let the person who tagged you know.

1. What were you doing ten years ago?
10 years ago I went in France for the very first time in my life. It was an adventurous trip as it was in 1998 when there were inondations in whole Central Europe and so when we arrived to the little town on the Polish border called Wroclaw with our tourist bus, the inhabitants were already closing all the bridges with sandbags... but nevertheless we managed to pass (looking back, we could see the people blocking the narrow passage in the tunnel with bags). It was also the year I translated my first book.

2. What are five things on my to do list?
1. Finish my thesis.
2. Find a new house.
3. Learn to sew.
4. Learn German, Greek and Chinese or Japanese.
5. Learn to finish the things I begin.

3. Snacks I enjoy.
Fruit of any kind. And tea.

4. Things I would do if I were a billioniare?
I would pay all the debts of all my relatives and friends, buy a house in the mountans and build an animal shelter.

5. Places I have lived?
In Estonia, in Tartu, Tallinn and Muuga. Then in Paris and now in a small town called Reggello near Florence (where I made a forced 4-months hald waiting our house to be ready).

And I tag:


Maikuu roosa

Minu maikuu roosa on valmis. Tegu on Candle Flame rätikuga, ehkki minu meelest on need rohkem lehed kui leegid (huvitav, mida ütleks siinkohal Freud? kui parafraseerida Ottot filmist "Kala nimega Wanda").

Sall sobiks ise väga hästi muuseas Wandale...
Tegelikult võiks selle nimi olla ka autosall, sest ma kudusin seda põhiliselt kiirteel Firenzest Reggellosse ja tagasi (hea lihtne muster, seda saab ka pimedas kududa) ja kuna asja eesmärgiks oli valmistada midagi suurt ja sooja puhuks, kui M. avab kõik autoaknad, sest tal on palav, aga mina lõdisen külmast. Siinkohal peaks järgnema kohustuslik lõik selle kohta, kui vale on see, et põhjamaised inimesed ei karda külma... aga ehk mõni teine kord.
Ma muutsin salli natuke, sest mulle ei meeldinud see justkui äralõigatud serv: kudusin esimese lehe valmis (seejuures tuleb serv silmuseline teha, ülejäänud sallil tuleb läbi kududa ka esimene silmus), heegeldasin vasakpoolse serva kinnissilmustega üle kuni järgmise lehe esimese servani ja siis kordasin kogu toimingut, s.t. leht valmis ja serv üle heegeldada. Jäi päris kena minu meelest.
Tutid on servas kolmel põhjusel: esiteks, kuna ma tahtsin ausalt ära kulutada kõik need 400 grammi oivalist vanaroosat lõnga, mis ma Campolmist ostsin, teiseks, kuna ma polnud veel saanud oma uhiuusi Prymi tupsumasinaid (ristisin nad hellitavalt LaaLaa1, LaaLaa2, LaaLaa3 ja MikroLaaLaa'ks) kasutada, kolmandaks, kuna nii tulevad servasakid eriti hästi välja.
Muster niisiis Dean Crane'ilt, lõng Filati Calmpomist (100% villane), vardad 3,5 ja asi ise läheb Maikuu roosana kirja Värvispektri projekti.

I just finished blocking my pink Candle Flame shawl (BTW, in my opinion the flames are more like leafs). I slightly modified it, adding a pointed edging and some pompons. The "leafs" on the edge are all finished separately but with one continuous strand of the yarn: on the last WS row, you eliminate the two purl stitches between the flames, purling them together with the first and the last stitch of every leaf. Then, on RS, you complete one leaf/flame at a time (paying attention to not knit the first stitch! to have loops on the edge instead of knots; if you know how to knit from left to right, it might be really useful because in this way, you do not have to turn your work every time). Then, without cutting the yarn, crochet on the stitches on the left edge of the leaf until the first stitch of the next leaf, then complete this leaf, crochet etc. until the edge is ready.
The pompons have two functions: firstly, I used ALL the 400 g of yarn I had for this project, secondly, they help the points of the edge stay pointy.

Pattern: Candle Flame Shawl by Dean Crane
Yarn: 400 g 100% wool from Filati Campolmi
Needles: 3.5



granadiriso soovil, minu tahtel... Küsimused pärinevad Babble-Dabble blogist. *A little questionnaire sent to me by Emme. As I found it rather amusing,

  1. Answer at least three of the questions. Yes, I know a few look time-consuming and there are several of them. That's why I only ask for three. See? I'm nice!
  2. Post them and the rules on your blog, and please link back to me here. Pretty please *^_^* ?
  3. Comment here telling me and the rest of our little party where you're at and link to yourself.
  4. That's all!
  5. Oh yeah, don't forget to tag others!
  1. What's the last book you read that you thought was really super, inspiring, you'd recommend it to most anyone? MUUMINTROLL by Tove Jansson.
  2. What food totally grosses you out, you'd never be able to touch it? Ew. Gag. *hurl* French sausage called "andouillette" that is made of cow's stomach but only because I was sick two days after I first eat it. Normally, I am rather curious by nature so I tend to try every food I stumble on (so this is how I have eaten termites for example).
  3. Did you ever watch a scary movie that frightened you so much you were afraid of the dark afterward? I mean like you're lying in bed trying to sleep, but you have to pee, but you're scared to get up. It doesn't have to be recently; could be when you were a kid. So what movie was it? Any scary movie, just pick one - and I still sleep with the light on if someone obliges me to watch one.
  4. Is there a song that makes you dance every time you hear it? Would you tap you feet and sing along to it in public? MORRISSEY, There is a Light that never goes out. And I do sing along to it even now, adding the video.
  5. Tattoos: yes or no? Do you have any? Tell us! Do you think they're gross? TELL US! No, I do not but I would like to.
  6. When's the last time you laughed so hard your ribs ached and/or you nearly peed yourself? What made you do it? Reading the bribs of conversations between Finnish doctors here (sorry all non-Estonians but this humour is not translatable) .
  7. Draw or doodle a picture of your pet(s) and post it if possible. Nothing fancy, don't be shy! I have a pet that can not be drawn because she just never keeps still...
  8. Go through a stack or box of your old music. Stuff that you may not have heard in years. Pick one and tell us about it. Is it as good (or as bad) as you remember? Led Zeppelin. And it still remains a classic but my love story with them is definitely over.
  9. Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal? We won't laugh! Yep. With a polar bear my husband gave my on my 25th birthday.
And now, Blacky, Bubbly and Ingrid, it's your turn!
