2 pakki ühe päevaga / 2 packages in one day

Täna sain kätte 2 pakki ja mõlemad Inglismaalt. Kõigepealt tellitud lõngad. Tahtsin katsetada milline on siis üks õige siidi lõng. Nüüd ma siis tean. Ja ma olen kaua imetlenud Heirloom Knittingu lõngu. Nende 'Gossamer Merino' ja 'Merino Lace' on päris mõnusad. Ja nende Shetlandi ja meie Haapsalu sallid on oma olemuselt ju sarnased. Siin haapsalu salli kuduja koos kohalike mustritest vimpliga ja erinevaid haapsalu salli mustreid haapsalu muuseumist mis loodud Rootsi kroonpirntsile ja tuntakse nüüd Kroonprintsi musterina, Greta Garbo muster ja Rootsi kuninganna Silvia muster.



Ja nüüd tänane teine pakk. Ka inglismaalt. Nimelt mu salajane sõber Secret Pal 7'st saatis mulle esimese kirja. Ja paar vahvat kaarti. Nii vahva on kuulda kellestki kel samad huvid ja juba peale esimest kirja on tunne, nagu tunneksid teda kaua. Igatahes saan ma nüüd palju teada Inglismaast :)




Today I got 2 packages and both form Engalnd. First of all ordered yarn. I wondered what kind of yarn is silk yarn. Now I know. I have long admiered Heirloom Knitting's yarns. Especially 'Gossamer Merino' and 'Merino Lace' are my fawourite. And Shetland and our Haapsalu shawls are same. Only patterns vary little :)

Traditional Haapsalu scarf is square with measures of 100x100 up to 150 x150 cm. The scarf consists of three parts: fine patterned middle part with a border and separately knitted and sown edge lace. It is knitted ,using double woollen yarn on wooden needles no. 3-4. The ready- made scarf is washed in a lukewarm soap-water, rinsed and framed immediately with an average tension. The most valuable is a white scarf. The material used to be a home-made single or double sheep wool,preferably little lamb`s wool. Later imported wool sorts were used, so that it was possible to drag a real Haapsalu scarf through a women`s ring.

Here are Haapsalu shawl knitter with local patterns and different shawl patterns from Haapsalu museum what are done for Swedish crown prince and pattern is known as Kroonprintsi Crown prince pattern, Greta Garbo pattern and Swedish queen Silvia pattern.


And todays second package. Also from England. My secret pal wrote to me from Secret Pal 7 exchange. There was some wonderful cards and letter. It is so nicea to get to know people who has same interests and already after one letter you think that you know her long time :) And now I can learn about England. I just
love it. Thanks my Secret Pal

Kahju et ma selle üritusega liitumise maha magasin. See tundub nii põnev olevat! Uued tuttavad ja nännipakid jne :)

Kas need siidised rätilõngad on tõeliselt mõnusad haapsalu räti (või peaks siis nüüd shetlandi salli ütlema) kudumiseks? Oled juba proovinud? Peenikesed? kerged?
