Mimosa Odüsseia / Mimosa

Sublime

Käsil on üks suur kudum. Eile lõin varrastele 599 silmust. Või nii ma vähemalt arvasin. OLin kudunud viis rida ripskoes ja ühe pahempidise rea, ning olin poole peal äärepitsi kordustega, kui märkasin, et mul oli rohkem silmuseid kui vaja. Lugesin siis silmused üle ja avastasin, et olin kudumisse keeru sisse teinud esimesel real.

Oh, I can feel it on my fingers that this is going to be a long project. I CO yesterday 599 stitches, or that's what I thought, knit 5 rows of garter stitch, one row of 599 purl stitches, started with the edging pattern, worked through 19x26 stitches of edging and then saw that I had more stitches than needed. I started counting and discovered I had done Moebius in the middle of the first row. Argh.
Mimosa Phase 1 - cast on
Ostsin helmed ka osaliselt ära. Täna lähen poodi tagasi ja tellin neid juurde. Helmeid on vaja ligi 1000. Pole kerge leida siinkandis kudumisse sobivaid helmeid.

I got some beads as well. I'll go back today to get some more and order the rest. I decided to go with less beads and therefore I'll need about 1000 nr 8 beads. Just I didn't imagine that they'd be so difficult to find here.

Neljanda päeva seisuga olen siinmaal.


So, I'm into my 4th day of knitting and this is how far I've gotten:
Mimosa 2

Seda ei tundu just palju, aga tegelikult on varrastel meeletu arv silmuseid. Alguses olid helmed igal teisel real, nüüd igal neljandal, m pakun, et algesets 599st silmusest olen jõudnud kahandada kuskil 490 silmuse kanti. Igal mustrikordusel kahaneb 10 silmust, nii et varti peaks read juba lühemaks minema. Helmeid on alles 170 ringis, tellisin neid Jaapanist jurude ja loodetavasti nad jõuavad varsti kohale. Aega on selle monstrumi jaoks ainult 21 päeva - viimistlemine, pesemine ja kuivamine kaasa arvatud. Varrastele tuleb auru anda, mis muud.

It doesn't seem much, but believe me it is, since now I have to bead only every 4th row (instead of every second) and I've gone from 599 sts to, I am guessing, about 490 sts. With every pattern repeat I decrease 10 sts so it gets less and less daunting by the row.

But I'm awfully close to finishing beads, I have some 170 left, but they disappear real quick, I just hope I get the rest of the beads from Japan on time.
Oh, by the way, I was wrong about the amount of days I have to knit this little big monster shawl - instead of 25, I have 21 days - that includes blocking it. So I'd say I have to have it done by 20th at least.
