B is for Birthday and for Best dad ever

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!

    Bonjour, je n’ai jamais laissé de commentaire, cela fait quelques mois que je suis ton blog découvert par hasard sur la page ravelry de l’oisivethé. Mais aujourd’hui, j’ai été émue aux larmes en lisant ton post sur ton pappa! Verdens beste pappa, j’en ai eu un aussi, parti il y a 10 ans… Profitez bien l’un de l’autre!

      Bonjour Sigrun, j’ai l’impression de te connaître déjà, vu que je suis ton blog trouvé via ravelry depuis l’un de tes premiers post sur le projet V. Woolf. Quel plaisir de retrouver ici – bienvenue!
      Je suis d’accord avec toi – profitez du temps qui nous est donné. Profitez des personnes qui nous entourent. Pourquoi, sinon, on est venu ici?

        Bonjour! Non, ce n’est pas moi, je n’ai pas de blog. Mais si tu veux voir ce que je fais sur ravelry, j’y suis sigrunf :). Bises, Sigrun
