Plava zimska maglica - Blue winter mist

Nedavno je Bubamaro donio svoju malu slikovnicu i svoj mali drveni vlakić i pokazao mi: „vidi, mama, ko moj“. Naime, skužio je da je na slici u slikovnici lokomotiva vrlo slična njegovoj. Onda smo pronašli i bubu slično ovoj na lijevoj slici, jer ako ičega ima u mojoj kući, to su sasvim sigurno autići, a pogotovo bube.

Recently my son brought me his picture book and a wooden train and showed me: look, mummy, it' like mine“. He realized that the train in the picture looked a lot like the one he has. Then we found a beetle-car a lot like the picture in the left, cause if there's anything you can find in my house, it's toy cars.





Tako Bubamaro ima autić i vlakić ko u slikovnici, a ja sam htjela kapu „ko u Once upon a time“. Pattern Foliage mi se činio najbliži, a vuna koja mi se muva u stashu već godinama mi se činila dovoljno dobra za taj misty čipkasti osjećaj. Iskreno, toliko je dugo imam da uopće nemam etiketa, ali mi se čini da je sastav bio nešto kao 80% moher-20%  akril. Znam samo iz prošlih projekata da a) malo bocka i pušta dlačice i b) dobro se ravna na paru.

So, Bubamaro has a car and a train just like the ones in the book, and I wished for myself a hat just like the one in Once upon a time. Pattern Foliage seemed like the closest one, and the yarn that's been in my stash for years seemed appropriate to get that misty lacy feel. To be honest, I've had that yarn for so long I couldn't find any labels, but I think it was something like 80% mohair – 20% acrylic. I just know from other projects that it's a little pokey and it's good for steamblocking.





Na kraju sam je plela dva dana, s tim da mi je trebao jedan dan za isplesti cijeli čipkasti dio, a onda sam se drugi dan z*?!#%ala s ovim uskim oko glave. Prvo mi nije bilo dovoljno vune, pa sam išla parati jedan neuspjeli šal koji je ispao preširok i prekratak da bi bio upotrebljiv. Problem je što se ova vuna jako teško para ako je kukičana, tako da je to koštalo i živaca i vremena. Kad sam je dovršila, skužila sam da će biti puno boljeg oblika ako je napravim kao dvostruku kapu, tako da ispod čipke ima jedan sloj glatkog boda. Još dva dana prilično dosadnog posla, ali vrijedilo je truda, jer sad bolje i izgleda i grije.



I ended up knitting the hat in two days; the first day was enough to make the entire lacy part, and the other day for the brim. First I didn't have enough yarn, so I had to unravel a part of a failed scarf that turned out too wide and too short to be useful. The problem is that this yarn is awful for unraveling, especially after crocheting, to it cost me a lot of time and nerves. After I finished it, I decided it would have a much better shape as a double hat, with a layer of stockinette underneath the lace. Another two days of boring work, but it was worth it, as it now not only looks better but keeps me warmer as well.



Naravno, čim sam je dovršila temperatura je porasla sa 0 na 15 stupnjeva.

Of course, as soon as I finished it, temperature went from 0 to 15 degrees Celsius.

Uvek se pitam da li ovakve kape sa rupicama dobro greju, i cuvaju, narocito od vetra... eto ti ces nam potvrditi :)

tena kaže...

@Magrit, nosila sam je samo jednom, i jako dobro je grijala, ali ona je dvostruka, ispod rupica je sloj glatkog boda.
ali čekaju nas još 3 "marčane bure", pa ću je testirat u ekstremnim uvjetima
