Test knit!

I am looking for couple of more test knitters! 
Are you interested? Please head over to my Ravelry group where the test takes place. 

The Soul of Spring Shawl is designed for an adventurous knitter, using several techniques to keep you on your toes throughout. The main body of the shawl is a shallow, elongated, isosceles triangle, worked in bias. The shawl is worked from side to side starting at one side of the wingspan, with the border knitted as you go using intarsia and short rows in the second half of the shawl. There is minimal finishing, no picking up stitches, and the length can be adjusted easily to suit your taste.

Koome koos: Õitsva kannaga sokid.

Muster nüüd ka eesti keeles.

Ski Moguls Fingerless Mitts.

I have to confess, some years ago I didn't get the fuzz about fingerless mitts. What are they good for? That's my fingers what get cold, not palms?! Anyway, I decided to knit a pair and see, do I like them as much as others say, or not. The result is, I'm addicted! I love them so much! They are great to wear in cool weather when I go for a walk. When I check my phone, I don't need to take gloves off! The shorter version is good to wear when I'm typing in a laptop or even knitting. By now, I have four fingerless mitts patterns published!

The first pair of the Ski Moguls mitts pattern was born, when I got some gorgeous yarn from my relative, who's neighbour is spinning yarn from her own sheep fleeces, adding some alpaca (Broome by The Spinning Potter in Facebook). I designed the pattern while the Olympic Winter Games were held in PyeongChang. I was working on the pattern and posted a photo of the work in progress on Instagram, asking people what the pattern reminded them of. ”Ski moguls” was one of the answers, clearly influenced by the Olympics. (See photo above).

I made the second pair for charity, using wool and acrylic blend yarn. 

The Ski Moguls pattern was published today, and I have some great offers to share!

Mõned aastad tagasi ma sõrmitutest kinnastest ei hoolinud. Ma ei saanud aru, milleks nad head on? Mul ju sõrmed külmetavad, mitte käelabad? Kudusin ühe paari, lihtsalt prooviks, ja olen sõltuvuses! Jaheda ilmaga nii hea kanda, ja ei pea kindaid käest võtma, et telefoni näppida. Kannan neid vahel isegi toas, kui arvutis tipin. Tõesti sõrmed pole nii külmad, kui käelaba soojas. 

Nüüdseks on mul juba neli sõrmitute mustrit kirja pandud. Täna sai joon alla tõmmatud Ski Moguls mustrile. Ma ei teagi, kuidas see tõlkes on? Igaljuhul muster sai nime viimaste olümpiamängude ajal, sest meenutas neid väikesi künkaid, miski uus suusatamise hullus vist.  Kas keegi teab eestikeelset nimetust? 

Momendil on muster saadaval 30% odavamalt. Ja kui soovid kõiki nelja mustrit, siis praegu saab need ainult 10 USD eest (+käibemaks). Pakkumine kehtib kuni 16. septembrini.
