[knitting] Print O' The Wave Stole-在製品 (wip)

從去年9月開打的Print O' The Wave Stole 終於進入最後階段囉~
其實認真打根本不需要花這麼多時間,都是因為我三心兩意同時開打好幾個作品,才會拖到現在才進入緣編的部分。
I started this project last September, but the edging is just beginning now.
Actually it won't spend me so much time if I pay all my attention on it.
I always have several projects in hand at the same time.

感謝這些前輩的經驗談,讓我減少了一些疑感 
Special thanks for the below knitters whose instructions do me a favor to finish it.
織圖 pattern:ravelry
線材:MIRU毛海*2.2 (我本來只買兩顆,結果不夠用只差一點點就可以完工了)
   -每球50G,約450M長,每球99元(因為是第一次玩毛海,不要用太好的以免浪費)
   -材質:80%毛、20%尼龍,下水後還是會刺,用柔軟精泡過後會好一點
   -此線標示很特別的地方:MADE FOR JAPAN (那產地到底是哪裡??)
   -購自台北桂芳手藝行

Yarn: MIRU mohair * 2.2 skeins (I bought 2 skeins at first, but I found that I need extra 50~100m)
        -450 m / 50gram per skein.  It cost 99NTD per skein;
           I didn't buy luxury mohair since I never knitted with mohair before.
        - 80% mohair, 20% Nylon  (it's a little sting, but it would be
            a little better after soaking in fabric softener)
        -Special thing about it: MADE FOR JAPAN (So which country it is made in?)
        -Buy from a yarn store in Taipei


棒針:史丹巴克日規#5  80CM金屬輪針*1+同款40CM輪針*1
Needle: Stanbuck (I don't know how to spell it since there is no any brand on the packing except LOGO) circular needle JIS #5 80CM and #5 40CM
其他配件:記號圈A色*1(用於緣編,標出開頭部分)
     記號圈B色*3
     記號圈C色*4
     記號圈D色*很多個
Accessories: marker in A color *1  (for the beginning of edging)
                    marker in B color *3
                    marker in C color *4
                    marker in D color * several pieces

*我會先將緣編的每朵花用記號圈標好,以免發生快織完才發現針數不對的情況還不知道錯在哪裡
,所以需要用很多記號圈,因此記號圈的數量其實是依人而定。
* I always use markers to seperate each patter, so that you could find whether is anything wrong immediately.
That's why I need so many markers.

本體的部分原圖是分成兩塊再對縫,但我看過yu的成品後還是決定一次打完,不要用縫的。一來是因為我沒做過對針縫,而且又是第一次使用毛海,怕到時就救不回來啦,二來是如果一體成形的話,只要線夠長,本體連同挑針及EYELET ROUND的部分就不用剪線啦(--→懶人)
The original pattern of body is knitted in 2 pieces and then saw them together.  After I see yu's project, I decide to knit it in one piece for 2 reasons:
1. I have never sewn it before, and it's the first time I use mohair.  So it's really difficult for me to do that.
2. If I knit the body in one piece, I could do the eyeround without cutting the yarn!  I could darn fewer yarn ends ( I am such a lazy person)

在打本體的部分只要照圖做是沒有問題的,但挑針的部分由於作者是以文字描述,一開始實在很難懂,我參考了幾位織女的文章,但大家對於挑針的部分各有解讀(大多數都是說自由發揮啦…這可以發揮的空間還真是大呀…)。而我自由發揮的結果卻導致最後的緣編差半朵花!整個作品本體我都是滿意度超高的,怎麼可以敗在這種地方呢!沒有其他的方法,只有拆!拆了才會進步!還好在第二次織的時候,我終於看懂作者想說什麼啦(自我滿意中♡),拆還是值得的~(不過我的織圖也被劃得亂七八糟的了)
There is no question for me when I knit the body.  The biggest problem is the inner border, since it is so hard to know how to do that from the description.  I browsed many blogs for that, but I immediately found that every knitter just knits in their way.   However I failed in my first way, the edging is incorrect...I finally ripped the inner border and eyeround after consideration since I don't want to be beaten here.  I think I finally know what Eunny Jang want to express, so it is really worth ripping.
下過水後的照片,還不賴吧^^
