What's on My Needles? Mis on varrastel?

Where should I start? Having several projects on the go, things to design, it's hard to find time for everything. One would think being a knitwear designer is just about knitting and petting yarns. Unfortunately I feel I spend more time on laptop than knitting. Why's that? Because that's where my clients are, online. Isn't it amazing how fast the technology has been changing? OK, what's I've been doing? 


Mida olen teinud vahepeal? Mitmed projektid on korraga töös. Putukaid olen kudunud veel ja veel. Põnev on näha erinevaid lõngu ja värve koos. Kui suuremad tööd vajavad rohkem tähelepanu ja ma ei saa neid teleka ees teha, siis võtan väikese töö näppu. Ei saa ju niisama lihtsalt telekat vahtida.

I've been knitting more bugs! These are small and quick to make and I love to see how different colours and yarns work together. When a bigger project needs more attention and I can't work on it in front of TV, I take a small one for TV knitting, can't sit without needles in my hands.


Next, I want to show you a sneak peek of a bigger project, a mosaic shawl. It's off my needles, the pattern is tech edited and practically ready to go. On the photo is just a half of the shawl shown, blocking. There are some reasons I don't show the whole shawl and don't publish the pattern yet.
At first, I run a MKAL, Mystery Knit A Long, in an Estonian knitting forum. I sent out the second clue last night. After the second clue the shawl will look like on the photo below. 
The second reason is, I'm run test knit in my Ravelry group to get projects linked to the pattern once it's released. Please join in!

Järgmiseks näitan piilukat uuest sallist, mis on tegelikult valmis, aga tervenisti näidata veel ei saa. Põhjuseks on Mustrimaailmas käimas olev salakudumine. Teine vihje läks eile õhtul teele, ja peale selle valmimist peaks sall välja nägema nii.


I couldn't stop with birds yet and casted on a cowl (below). It's still wip (work in progress). Fingers crossed it will turn out as I imagined or I have to rip it off and start again. Not sure about decreases and measurements, in theory it should work.

Ma ei suutnud piirduda ainult ühe lindudega salliga ja võtsin kaeluse varrastele. See on veel pooleli. Ma pole päris kindel, kas tuleb praktikas nii välja, nagu ma ette kujutasin, kas kahandused ja mõõdud töötavad või läheb harutamiseks. Pöidlad pihku!




That's it for today. I have two patterns with cables coming in the end of October. I'll tell about these next time. See you again!

See on tänaseks kõik. Järgmine kord räägin kahest palmikutega mustrist, mis näevad ilmavalgust oktoobri lõpus. Nägemiseni / lugemiseni!
