Welcome to Russian Banya!

Hello, my dear readers. With light steam to You! Sure that my greeting surprised you)
But that’s what they say welcome the man who just came out of the Banya! ( Bath)original (1)

Russian Banya – those words that sound when referring to the Russian tradition. Surely you have heard this word when referring to Russia. I will tell you about one of our traditions.

Our Russian bath is a national phenomenon and our historical tradition. It is both a construction for performing hygiene procedures and therapeutic in most diseases.zdorovie

Bath in the life of the Russian people at the time served several functions. It was washed and warmed himself. Taking treatments, people became more healthy. In addition, Banya in human life is played and social role. To her, visiting her friends, was like a purification ritual combines not only the body but the soul. A source of heat served flat stones that were stacked on the hearth in the form of a dome. The stones glowed, and they were used for heating water and for heating the room.c6e47c9927ce3dfac0e0ae21d2a77556

To maintain temperature, hot stones doused with water and herbal infusions, which created the so-called “light steam”. Its benefit lies in the fact that the man was slowly heated, and then, after rushing up the ferry climbed to the top shelf. Inhalation of “light steam” with herbs created the effect of inhalation and massage with a broom, broke up the blood and brought sickness. After such a hearty massage with a broom, it is necessary to plunge into the cold water. From a medical point of view, it is very useful for the body.Веник-на-спинеbanya-v-gorah-1024x683banya

The construction of the sauna begins with a careful selection. A classic Russian Banya is a small hut on the edge of a lake or river, made of logs of pine trees.

It consists of two rooms: the changing room and the steam room, which concurrently was washing compartment. In the dressing room set shop and a clothes hanger, as the waiting room plays the role of locker rooms and rest rooms.ac15f86d37c941998732a72c66f4539binterjer_bani

The dressing room is separated from the steam room by a wooden partition with a tightly fitted door. About the furnace, usually a small window that is not only a source of light,  but the vent. The third part of the classic sauna Russian Banya is a wood-burning stove, near which are placed a tub of water. In the steam room mandatory shelf, which in fact is the process of taking bath procedures.4bed19bb

Typically, the process of evaporation takes 4-5 hours. You might ask why so long?
My husband every Thursday goes to the bath. I repeat, it is a TRADITION. Let’s call it a Men’s Club. They are steamed, massaged each other with brooms made of birch branches, and then communicate to their male subjects. And as you know, this all can’t happen fast)))IMG_3449

Do you remember this photo from my previous post? As in the bath very high temperature, it is necessary to protect the head. It is for this purpose that such caps. They are made from felt and have a different shape. For every taste and style. That’s the Budyonovka ‘ helmet of the early 20th century. This form of bath hats the most popular among our experienced men’s bath attendants.

The best gift for a lover of baths.

After taking bath procedures, traditional kvas or tea.kvas Cannot eat much and of course, you cannot drink strong beverages.
After this procedure, you are sure to feel born again.

Black kitty & White Cat

A very small post about the cats) I don’t have cats, now I can’t afford to have it for different reasons. But I like cats, I like their independence and watch them very interesting. Imagine what a serious event, on stage someone reads the report on an important topic. The audience carefully closets Rapporteur…..and here on stage, behind the scenes it turns out the cat……. She slowly walks down the stage, encircling the audience and the Rapporteur’s attention. Then stop, for example, scratch behind the ear.открытие сезона_40м
Do you think that will be focused on all the attention to the speaker or not? Well, of course, all the audience’s attention is now focused on the cat! And it will continue to until she decides to go on his cat)
I’m not going to write about the symbolism of cats and their magical nature. But they will always be interested in us, and we tolerate their antics and intractable temper because we love them!il_570xN.978377298_oz8x
I too, can say, made my contribution to the adoration of cats) Here are two of my hits on this topic)

“Fashion verdict”

On Russian television, there is a project called “Fashion verdict”. A very popular program. The essence of this transmission is that the program invites the woman. Who does not know how to dress or do not know how to combine clothes. One leading it protects and finds many reasons why she does this. Second leading, on the contrary, criticizes a woman and advises how to properly dress. The chief judge is either known to the designer or, as is now well-known fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev. The first part of the program devoted to the hearing of the defendant and the Prosecutor. In the second part, the woman returned to the shop and she chooses three outfits. Invited to the famous person commented on the selection of participants. In the third part of the program, the stylists work with the participant and to your taste decorate it. The audience in the Studio at the end of program vote, or the choice of the heroine of the program or select stylists.
Here and planned to do something similar)
Julia came to me like that. Very nice view for walking or meeting friends. But suppose on the street autumn. And I, as a stylist disguised Julia.950731

Pattern for Julia

Now I am asked to write a pattern for knitting dresses. I’m sure is written it. And I’ve already started working on it. I must admit that I find it difficult to do yourself. Definitions and abbreviations for the description of works in Russian and English languages differ from each other. And method of knitting, as I recently learned, is also different. But that does not mean to associate knitting my dress will be difficult. I will try to write easier and make more photos, so you will understand the process of its creation. But let’s focus on some of the complexities of this process.

1 Tools for the job.
I work very thin needles for knitting. Their size of 1 mm. In the American system, they have the number 0000.D9987-3 (1)
2 Yarn.
As you know from my previous posts, I also choose a very thin yarn. For example, yarn Nirvana has such data in 25 g (0,88 oz) of 340 meters (372 yds)
In this work, it is very important patience and attentiveness.

But I tried to make the pattern is not very complicated dresses. It turned out to be quite interesting and exciting for me. The dress I chose that.title 1

I like dresses for dolls, which you can then add different accessories or create a similar dress a second time, slightly change the pattern of knitting. Like this white knitting dress. It is patterned, but a little-added ornament on the front.2194

If you are interested in this dress, you can see it in my store on Etsy.

Project for Julia

Continue to test the yarn Nirvana. For a new project, I chose shades of green and light beige color. The dress was conceived as an outfit for Julia to autumn period, with long sleeves and floral patterns. For flowers, I chose a dark shade of dusty rose. For the petals of pale green edging and part of the ornament of the marsh shade. I came up with to complement the dress a small headband with flowers and decorate them the hair of my doll.creativhook AG mini

New dress and the idea.

Today my story will be all about the single dress, but about an idea! I recently dismantled my huge inventory of yarn and thought….Why not make a small collection of dresses, only United color palette. Each dress will be knitted of one color of yarn and embellished with floral embroidery.  Some of the dresses I showed you.  This time I chose an amazingly beautiful color. This colors name is  Nirvana – Butterscotch by Filatura di Grossa Italia.272cb43926014118a4af839b9da549e6I knitted the dress, the bottom of the dress designed small two-tone ornament, imitating pebbles on the ground and Chose the right thread for embroidery.  The idea of embroidery became this image from the Internet.

My stories

Have you heard what is Coworking?

Today my post will be about the place about which I had never heard, but always wanted such a place was. Doing things you love, we will find people who share your interests and your Hobbies. In such cases, should be the place where you will be comfortable discussing important moments of your activities or just to chat about random topics, of course not forgetting to share your findings and your achievements and perhaps new knowledge.
I dream of such a place as the Women’s club that I could come and women go about their creative projects. Where over a Cup of tea or coffee in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere could talk on the town, but they understand women’s topics.

I have a friend and colleague, her name is Anna Aleksashenko. Remember I wrote about her playing with dolls)?

https://creativhook.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/playing-with-dolls/
Now we are like-minded and colleagues. We have recently come to the conclusion that we need to “live” meetings, and not just a conversation on the phone or social networks.
We decided to arrange a so-called “symposia” with discussions of our shared projects or new work. Of course, we have a lot of time is spent on work, but “stew” in its own juice is not beneficial to our creative process. We had chosen for our meetings, some cozy cafes, but …..we found a new place!! That’s just about it and my story! IMG_2896

Have you heard what is Coworking?
In many countries, this field of communication is already more developed. In Russia, it became popular recently. So, a little historical and useful facts.
Coworking in a broad sense — the approach to the organization of work of people with different employment in a common space; in a narrow — like space, collective office. Coworking describes the flexible organization of working space and seeks to build communities of residents and internal culture.In the context of urban coworking considered as a kind of “third places” — public spaces, connecting people for communication and creative interaction. Often co-occupy buildings and premises, having lost their previous purpose: the factory shop, the former schools, and even churches.In close to the modern sense of the term “coworking” was first used by the Game designer and fun theorist Bernard Coven, to indicate the approach defined it as ” a collaboration of equal people”. Company training organized by the Cov included the joint decision of the working task through brainstorming and discussions and, in fact, called coworking. He also became the first owner of a domain name coworking.com which subsequently voluntarily handed over to the coworking movement.

Brad Newberg has also been a co-founder of the coworking Citizen Space in San Francisco, CA

The first ever co-working opened August 9, 2005, in the house of the feminist community Spiral Muse in San Francisco.8dc6bbc1aac24d5691bb60bc1f1e4782 featured_47d918cde4Tired of the lack of communication in the office and the uselessness of the work at home programmer Brad Newberg has established a coworking as a non-profit partnership and invited potential participants jobs, free Wi-Fi, breaks for meditation, shared Lunches and joint Bicycle rides in exchange for a small monthly premium. A year later, Brad closed the first coworking and co-founded a new — Hat Factory.20150226-London-Soho-11

By 2007, the concept of “coworking” is entrenched in the English language, and in 2009 he published the first book on coworking — “I’m Outta Here: How coworking is making the office obsolete” by Drew Jones. In 2010, the coworking movement celebrated the fifth anniversary of the opening of coworking at Spiral Muse by carrying out the first #CoworkingDay. In 2011 hosted the first conference, which brought together the founders of coworking from all over the world — Global Coworking Unconference Conference.n3AbFt7q-UM

We found us in St. Petersburg such a place. It was amazingly creative and positive place. The young people were busy with their own Affairs, and absolutely no one no one interfered. At the entrance, everyone got a vintage alarm clock as the symbol of time. As a sign that you should treat your useful time very carefully. ( because time in this place is paid for) this time we studied the new resources that will help us further promote our small shops. And of course we have implemented is not yet large, but a joint project for a single client. Some photos of our workspace. And I have no one photographed))))IMG_2886IMG_2884IMG_2889IMG_2897IMG_2892

Crimson fashion show

Today my story will be devoted to the Nirvana from the Italian yarn manufacturer Filatura di Crosa and dresses for dolls. As I wrote before, for my works I use only very high-quality yarn and often produced in Italy. Soft and thin, it fits perfectly for knitting the smallest dolls. The composition of this yarn contains Merino wool, which is considered the best material in the world.Yarn Nirvana has a wonderful feature — it absolutely does not irritate the skin, so is perfect for creating baby things. Also, 77e5942697d1af20b114bd2b9d7e2ebdit is possible to knit products for Allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. In addition, the yarn is Filatura di Crosa Nirvana has excellent thermostatic properties and elasticity, so stuff from it for many years do not lose their properties and retain an attractive appearance. It is also worth noting that, according to experts, products made from Merino wool have a positive influence on health, realizing a micro-massage the body and thereby improving circulation. Care, too, such things will not cause you trouble. Wash this yarn in warm soapy water, wring out in a towel and then dried in the unfolded form. Full description

Full description
Roll length: 340 m;
Weight: 25 g;
Material: 100% Merino wool;
Needle Size: No. 2,0-2,5; ( but I prefer No. 0.6 – 1.0)
Knitting density: 10×10 cm – 34 loops 38 series  ( In my case, 70 loops 100 series.)

Some fans and collectors of dolls like when their dolls dressed in the same dress. I heard this opinion from my clients. And since dolls are different in size, the dress can be linked with small changes, but stick to a single style. As decoration, you can use miniature embroidery or lace, small decorative items ( I have the items for jewelry making) and crochet flowers. And believe me, your dolls are amazingly beautiful, even if the color of the dresses they match.
So, I chose to create this mini collection Pink color yarn Nirvana. As my models represented: American girl mini Julia Kelly by Mattel and Heidi Ott Toddler. All the attention is on the screen.
