Father’s Day

More coffee!!!

Michael’s been learning Spanish with duolingo. This year’s mug is from MiriHardyPottery.

Note: This is a retroactive post created on Father’s Day 2017. I’m not sure what was happening last year, but I didn’t post on Father’s Day and I can’t find a picture of the two of them with the mug!

2011 Mug

This Mug Belongs to DaDa

The nice folks at Twisted River Clayworks made this year’s mug exactly to Ellie’s specifications. They even made the mug bigger to fit all the words. When we opened the box, Ellie pronounced it “Perfect.” She has decided to take her Dad to Kangarooz this morning. Because “Dada likes to watch me have fun.”

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads and Dads-to-Be.

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?
