SKY-HIGH CHALLAH!


WOW!

I made Challah this afternoon ... and it just came out of the oven: SKY-HIGH!



Must have had a GOOD batch of yeast ;-)


There was enough bread dough to make 2 loaves & 8 good-sized dinner rolls.

I pray it is not full of air bubbles when I cut into it – I did knead it real good to make sure there would be no bubbles – but never expected it to rise this high; it never has before!

used the recipe I have been using for decades; I guess I got blessed today. LOL

MOD SLIPPERS – Designed on Giant Sea Clam Colorations ;-)


I did knit the original pattern for these slippers from the original pattern, HOWEVER – I can truthfully state that THESE SLIPPERS are MY OWN DESIGN because I reworked the original pattern to enlarge the slippers to fit a Size 8W & Size 10W women’s foot.

So, I am NOT “stealing” – and I am NOT lying: I reworked the original pattern to my specific design creations: ALL DESIGNERS USE someone else's basic foundation for thier 'original' work.

That said, I am posting the reworked pattern as I reworked it – if you make these slippers please GIVE CREDIT TO the original designer, as well as LINK BACK TO MY PAGE.

Thank you:


ORIGINAL SIZE 6-61/2W: Knit slipper exactly as written in the posted link above – I opted not to use the openwork increase; instead I just knit my slipper straight garter stitch increase. I like it better that way ;-)

I LIKE LOTS OF COLOR, so I patterned my slippers after the colorful giant sea clams. LOL It works for me and my designs …

Giant Sea Clam: green tridacna - TURQUOISE-LT ORANGE-SOFT NAVY-LIGHT GREEN-VARIGATED PINKS
Starting in the round ...
Ready to close bottom.
Bottom edges carefully closed to match ribs.
FINISHED!
What these slippers look like on the feet …


MY MODIFICATIONS for enlargement – I just worked this particular slipper without working bold coloration into it because I was reworking the pattern and needed to pay close attention to the modification increases (https://jeastofeden.blogspot.com/2019/09/mod-paintbox-slippers-modified-tesha.html).

Size 8: Inc as written in original pattern to a total of 50 sts on needle.

K1 row even.

Inc as written in original pattern until there are 94 sts on needle.

Work in 2 x 2 ribbing for 20 rows; then finish as original pattern directs.


The size 10W slippers I worked up, were patterned after this sea clam:

Giant Sea Clam - BABY BLUE-THYME-ICELANDIC VARIGATED BLUES; ready for Sale (https://jeastofeden.blogspot.com/2019/09/slow-day.html)

Size 10: Inc as written in original pattern to a total of 56 sts on needle.

K1 row even.

Inc as written in original pattern until there are 112 sts on needle.

Work in 2 x 2 ribbing for 21 rows; then finish as original pattern directs.

SLOW DAY


Woke up this morning to the sound of raindrops tap-dancing on my rooftop ;-)

Autumn is in full swing.


So, it's gonna be a slow day here at the Hargand home.

I will be knitting, and watching oldies (black-n-white movies & music videos) on Youtube all day long - later ushering the Shabbat in with a small goblet of Blackberry Wine at sundown :-D

**Chai, Mishpochah!**

Peace out to all my friends and family members reading my Blog ...


**Chai!

Shabbat Shalom Mishpachah!

The Hebrew word, Chai, is made up of two letters of the Hebrew alphabet - Chet ( ח) and Yod ( י), forming the word "chai", meaning "alive", or "living". The most common spelling in Latin script is "Chai", but the word is occasionally also spelled "Hai".

The word, Mishpachah, literally means "family". The word conveys a warm feeling of friendship.
