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!
