Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day!


This year’s mug is made by Pat Parker.

I’ve been working on the sock for the Bake Sale. The pattern is reminiscent of the dish cloth on the Peaches & Creme ball band.


The stitch pattern I ended up using is mediocre as far as Difficulty is concerned, making this a great sock project for social knitting. It’s also gender neutral and quite stretchy so it will suit many types of feet. The slipped stitch pattern makes good use of variegated yarns, but it is also interesting enough to stand out when made in a solid or semi solid colorway. In short, Bake Sale is shaping up to be an excellent all-purpose, go-to pattern. Yay!

Also, did you see my lion?

    I love the socks — that pattern would have been perfect for the socks I’m making for my DH rather than the 3×1 rib that’s getting reaallly boring!

    Very cute Father’s Day picture! Ellie is getting cuter in each picture! You know I love that lion! He is just adorable! I also love the colors you used in your sock. Is that the yarn from Montana that I sent you last year that has the coordinating scarf/hat yarn? It sure looks like it. Just lovely!

    What a cutie pie! (I need to get me one of those eventually.)

    Looks like you’re working through the whole menagerie… or the Chinese Zodiac… or Noah’s Ark. I lurve the lion!
