Bulgarian Slippers - Finished

Good evening to all!

Finished my Bulgarian Slippers today, very happy with result, and they fit like a glove (glove for feet :])
Also I did few improvements in them;

  • knitted 8 rows in garter stitch, instead of suggested 4-6 rows
  • closed the stitches with 3-needle-bind-off instead of cast of and sew method
Count stitches to find the middle. Transfer half of stitches to second needle. Fold at middle, RS together  with yarn on the right. Using a third needle (I was using double pointed needles in this method), K the first stitch on both needles together. Then K the second stitch on both needles together. Slip the first of these knit stitches over the second, and let it drop off the needle. Knit the next stitch on both needles, and slip previous stitch over this one. Continue to the end.

So this how right side looks:
And this is wrong side:

My feet are truly happy!

Thanks Sveta very much for such an amazing opportunity  Will definitely knit more of them for each member of the family!

Bulgarian Slippers - Part 1

Good day all!
Always wanted to knit proper pair of house slippers for myself, and when Sveta in her blog announced Knit Together Bulgarian Slippers, I, of course, couldn't resist!
So here we go Part Nr.1!

I picked Sirdar Country Style yarn in Grey and 2,5 mm double pointed needles.
My starting stitches number is 47 (as Sveta says in her first part - 1 side stitch - 22 stitches - 1 middle stitch - 22 stitches - 1 side stitch)

So I picked up 47 stitches and knitted 6 rows in British Gum(???), not sure how to call right, its Aнглийская резинка in Russian.
Cant wait for next part!
P.S. Don't think that 47 stitches on 2,5 mm needles be enough for my big feet! So going to re-do 1st part. Going to pick up 51 stitch, and then see what happens. Will show it in next part!
UPDATE: Finally did it! After hundred tryings I finally found number of stitches I need for my feet - 55! So did 6 rows in British Gum and started Part 2. Using another needles - bamboo circulars in size 2.75 mm. Also added another color - my slippers be stripey, yay!

See you very soon,

Family Omelet...

Good Morning Blog!
I woke up with big urge in my head to make big Omelet for everybody - this is how my big Omelet recipe was born.

You will need:

6 eggs
A bit of milk (like half of cup)
Spices (I used Italian)
5 sausages (or anything you want)
grated cheese (I used chedder)
3 table spoons of self rising flour
pinch of baking powder
salt, pepper

So mix everything in a big bowl and put in the oven for 20-30 min (you will see when its ready, it will rise up like mad). 
Bon Appetite!

Hope everyone doing well,
I am busy with crafting, so be back very soon to share!
