Today is my dad’s birthday. He is the best dad ever. We don’t get to see each other so much as we live in different countries but it’s good when we meet.
I am knitting him something, because I like the idea of making him something he can wear. He is a non-fuss man so it has to be a non-fuss pattern. I chose to knit a Howlcat (letting the cat out of the bag now!). It’s a combined hat and cowl. I hope this will be perfect for his long strolls in the woods.
I chose the most squishy yarn in my stash : Cyrano by de Rerum Natura. Natural, sustainable yarn from local sheep in the middle of France. It’s so soft and delicious, I just want to hug it.
The contrast yarn/colour is Everyday by the uncommon thread. It’s a wonderful deep sea blue and I hope he likes it as much as I do.
Well, I’d better go back to knitting now. I have a birthday present to finish.
Gratulerer med dagen, pappa!
