Spice Up A Sofa. Sohvakaunistused.

 
I've abandoned my blog! Having several social media sites, Instagram, Facebook page, Ravelry, forums, it gets a bit overwhelming sometimes. Blogging needs more concentration, not as easy as just clicking likes. Ok, here I am again.
I had a lot of yarn left over from my Knitted Work of Art. I had several ideas, what to knit with it. Finally I decided to knit cushion covers. I wanted to work in intarsia again and looked for ideas for design. Final idea came from well-known car brand trademark. Can you tell which car I had in mind?
I think a cushion makes a great Christmas present for a son, brother, nephew or boyfriend. If you want to give a knitted present why not a cushion to cuddle?
Colour-blocking is a modern and trendy way to make a difference with bold splashes of geometric colour. Working in intarsia is fairly easy for an advanced beginner who is comfortable with the basic knit and purl stitches. I was a bit intimidated by intarsia before, all that bobbins tangling , felt too much of hassle. Now I can say one must not be sacred, it's easier than it seems, specially with quite large colour blocks. I worked straight from centre-pull skeins and enjoyed the process so much.
Patterns can be purchased as singles or as an ebook. Tips and tricks for intarsia knitting are included to the pattern.

 
Olen oma blogi üsna unarusse jätnud! Viimasel ajal olen sotsiaalmeedias veidi aktiivsem olnud, Instagram, Facebooki leht, Ravelry, foorumid - kõik võtab aega. Blogimine nõuab rohkem keskendumist, ainult laikimisega hakkama ei saa ;)
Need padjad valmisid juba augustis. Kunstiteose kudumisest jäi lõnga üle. Esialgu mõtlesin kampsuni kududa, siis muutsin meelt. Mulle meeldis intarsias kududa ja otsisin uut ideed padjakatete disaini jaoks. Idee tuli ühe tuntud automargi märgist. Tunnete ära? Arvan, et padjad on suurepärane jõulukingitus autofännist pojale, vennale, sõbrale. Kudujale ju meeldib ka jõulukingitused ise teha ;)
Ma olen ikka arvanud, et intarsia on keeruline, kõik need lõngatutsud rippumas. Tegelikult pole keerulist midagi, eriti kui värve pole palju ja pinnad suured. Hele-hall lõng sai otsa, kuid teisi veel on. Otsin uusi ideid :)

Ilusad padjad! Kuigi tean autosid, ei tunne automarki ära.

Väga ilusad padjad! Järsku Toyota? Sel ju ka märgil ümarad vormid.

Tänud! Embleemi on kasutatud ainult osaliselt, inspiratsiooniks, ja et mingite seadustega vastuollu ei läheks. Aga eeskujuks oli "bemm" ;)
