Happy Father’s Day 2012! (and a little Mochimochi)

Happy Father’s Day!  We are having a nice but productive morning.  I had to go to the grocery store, pay bills and water. Davey loves to help me water.  We’ve been watering for the neighbors while they are out of town, and he thinks this is just great fun.  It was in the 70s yesterday.  Beautiful.  Today?  96.  That just seems like a crazy jump to me.

David is cleaning for Father’s Day.  He just finished all the floors.  A very clean house is probably his favorite possible Father’s Day present.  Davey helped and Koko got underfoot following everywhere.  I dusted.  This Colorado is dusty.

I got no satisfactory pictures of David for Father’s Day gift opening.  I was given the ok to put this one up.  I told David it was blurry.  His response?  “Exactly.”

Davey loves delivering the presents.  There’s not much he likes better than a good celebration.  I am in a little bit of trouble for not buying balloons.  He felt better though once he remembered that we are going to make cupcakes this afternoon.

Notice the artwork by the stairs.  We have several beautiful paintings around the house compliments of Davey and a lot of tape.

I knitted some little things for my dad for his Father’s Day.  He built this awesome dollhouse a few years ago, and we thought it would be fun to have some knitted objects in it.  So I looked at my great Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi book, and I picked out a few things to knit.

My favorite thing that I made was this mailbox (it’s about 2.5 inches tall I think):

Here’s an idea of the scale of these little things.  You might not immediately determine that the following is a record player.

Anna Hrachovec writes really nice patterns.  They are a little tricky because many are in the round and are done with size zero or size one needles.  But I’ve gotten better at it with practice.

I also made a gnome (every house needs a little gnome!) and a telephone.

Pretty fun!

Happy Father’s Day!  We are off to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch.  David loves their spaghetti which may be the garlickiest dish on the planet, but it’s his favorite.

  1. The telephone is my favorite. That is just too cute!

    It’s crazy windy today at my house. I’m actually wishing for some rain, but maybe that isn’t nice on Father’s Day.
