Father's Day

Happy Father’s Day! This morning, we had breakfast in bed for our resident Daddy. He also got a little refrigerator to hold cold drinks on the back porch. I wish he would get off the couch and tear it out of the box. I didn’t wrestle that thing out of the back of the jeep and up to our porch so he could just let it sit there. I wanna use it! I thought about buying him a wok, but that would have been completely self serving….

Tonight, my Dad will be coming over and we are going to have a Father’s Day dinner. Dessert is going to be home made ice cream that I made this morning. And you guys may find this amusing, but I am going to be making my first coleslaw ever today. I have never made it before. Maybe making coleslaw isn’t as common as I think it is. I have a feeling that I am a freak for not having made any until now.

I have a finished object to show you guys, too. The black and purple socks. They are toddler sized toe up socks on 2.5 mm and 2.75 mm dpn‘s. I used Priscilla Gibson-Roberts’ book Simple Socks and Knit Pick’s Palette yarn. I haven’t started a new pair of socks yet. Instead, I have been spending all of my knitting time on my sweater. I can’t wait to wear it. It isn’t all that often that I am this excited to wear something I am working on. Maybe it’s because I haven’t made myself a sweater in over a year.

On Tuesday, I got all freaked out. I went to Knit Picks and they were having a sale. I was so worried that I might not have money to spend there, that I got offline immediately and did all my bills. Fortunately, I had plenty of money left to spend on yarn. Can you imagine if I hadn’t had the money? I might have gone into convulsions or something. Their prices are already great, but sale prices are always welcome at my house.

I hope everyone out there is having a great day with the special dads in their lives!
(or special guy if you don’t have kids)


How funny, I am a major cook and come to think of it I've never made Cole Slaw either!!
