Waiting and Trying

The Top-Down Raglan Cardi has been drying on the blocking board for two days now, and it is still damp. Although there have been some light showers, the weather really isn't too wet. I guess I didn't squeeze out enough moisture before I put it on the board.

拉克蘭外套已經下過水躺在定型板上兩天了, 剛剛去摸卻還有濕氣. 這幾天是下了一些毛毛雨, 可是不覺得濕氣有太重啊... 還覺得皮膚好乾燥... 我想大概是我用大毛巾把它包起來吸水時吸的還不夠, 下次要記得了.


While waiting, I started the next TKA project - "Reading-in-Bed Shrug" from IK Spring 2007. Knowing this project was coming, I picked up two balls of Lang Venezia when LYS Creative Hands had a sale a few weeks ago. The gauge was exactly the same as the suggested yarn GGH Soft Kid, and I love the color. Blue and purple is one of my favorite color combinations.

外套沒乾, 沒辦法縫釦子, 就來準備TKA的下個project - 蕾絲小外套. 幾個禮拜前碰上毛線店特價打折時, 就買了兩球Lang Venezia. 密度和圖樣建議毛線GGH Soft Kid是一模一樣, 而且是我最喜愛的藍紫色.


I am not sure if it's due to the higher acrylic content (50% acrylic and 50% mohair), the swatch felt a bit stiff. The stitches were uneven, and the color variation just seems to interfere with the lace pattern. I just did not like how it turned out. Well, off I went to another LYS to see if I can find GGH Soft Kid.

不知道是不是因為這線壓克力成份過高(50%壓克力 50%毛海), 試織的織片感覺有點硬. 針目不均勻, 漸層的顏色看起來花花的, 蕾絲的花樣都看不清楚了. 只好再跑另一家店看看能不能找到GGH Soft Kid (講得好像很委屈, 其實是很愛去啦... :D)


Aaahhh, now that's better. Soft and feminine, and yet you can still see the stitch patterns.

嗯... 看起來好多了. 很柔軟的感覺, 蕾絲花樣還是看的很清楚哦!

妳選的線都好好看喔~水藍色的毛海看起來舒服又柔軟,妳用來打拉克蘭的這組線我也很喜歡^^

You really like Lt. Blue, eh? Didn't you have one crocheted shrug in lt. blue?? Anyway, love this Soft kid you chose, I thought about making one too, maybe tomorrow I'll go to Knitche, I gotta put some stamps on my "yarning" card.

Both colors look good.They came out different taste.Mine is off needles and blocking now.Happy "Reading-in-Bed Shrug" knitting!!

I am using GGH Soft Kid as well! I love how soft it is but do you think it sheds too much?

Margaret said...

I wasn't too happy with my result, either because I used the same composition as the first yarn you used.
But I finished it anyway, I don't really want to rip it out. Don't have time to knit as is. :(

To 桔寶寶:
這幾個顏色我覺得還不錯看啦! 水藍毛海織起來效果很好, 我很滿意~ ^o^

To Tcknit:
Hehe... I almost forgot I already made a lace shrug in baby blue too, in Filatura Di Crosa Mirto. I know, I can't resist any baby blues, but it has to be the right shade. Let me know if you found any goodies at Knitche.

To Annie:
I still like both colors, it's just the results look so different. Lang Venezia was a bit disappointing. Now I need to find another project for it...

To Skinheaded Princess:
I love GGH Soft Kid! I am already thinking about getting more for future projects. As far as shedding, mine seems to be okay. I didn't notice too much shedding.

To Margaret:
I never liked acrylic yarns, I guess I love the colors so much that I overlooked the compositions. I probably will not buy yarns with too much acrylic in it after this. Maybe you can make another one with a different yarn when you have more time?!

Hello,

I am finishing a beautiful lace pattern sweater in Mirto by Filatura di Crosa. Only problem is I am a bit short of the yarn, which I purchased years ago. I am looking for less than 1 skein of color 11, lot 10. Would you happen to have any leftovers that you would be willing to sell?

Thanks,
Caroline
