I’m Back, and I <3 my daD!

18 Jun

Great news, friends!  My project is finally, FINALLY finished!  Since it’s a gift you’ll have to wait a bit to see; I don’t want to ruin the surprise.  T-minus two weeks until you can see the lovely pictures!

In the meanwhile I’ve been working on just a few things, including these:

how do you make crochet manly? Why, put some whiskey inside, of course!

For Father’s Day this year we got the dads (daD and Dadio, as they like to call themselves) some really awesome whiskey stones.

brown bow = totally manly, right?

And, since it seemed weird to get them whiskey stones without whiskey, we got Dadio a bottle of his favorite beverage and the daD a bottle of something new to try – honey whiskey (which, by the way, is DEEEEElicious)!

Dadio's whiskey pops its collar LIKE A BOSS.

Do you think the dads will forgive the girlie packaging?  I hope so.  =)

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads (and grandpas, and uncles, and soon-to-be dads, and you know, all of the awesome male role models floating around out there).  We love you!

Not only does little Nina purr like it’s going out  of style when we feed her carrots,

 

I can haz carrots?

 

She’s apparently also really into strawberries, cuz while Husband, some friends and I enjoyed a bottle of buttery, delicious wine the other night,

 

With a label like that, it HAS to be good!

 

Little Miss Nina pilfered a strawberry from our snack stash and thoroughly nommed it.

 

nom nom nom

 

I’m beginning to think we’ve gone and adopted ourselves a vegetarian kitteh…

 

...maybe it's a squirrel flavored strawberry?

 

 

WIP it…

So, when I started this pattern, which will eventually be a light-weight spring shrug,

I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS MADE ENTIRELY OF SINGLE CROCHETS.

 

pretty, but time consuming.

Granted, they’re back post single crochets, so they’re, uhm, .00002 % more challenging than regular single crochets, but the lesson here, people, is this:

READ THE WHOLE PATTERN BEFORE YOU START THE PROJECT.  If you don’t, your coffee table will look like this forever

 

blarg.

And even though you work on it every night, the world will probably end before your shrug makes it to the 38 inch length your pattern calls for.

 

Just sayin.  *grin*
