Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my Dad. He's such a wonderful father, understanding, supportive, loving, generous, and I don't think my Mom could ask for a better partner. I wish I had a picture of him with his Hemlock Ring Blanket to show you all. I knit it for his birthday a few weeks ago (I know! What do you do for the man who "just wants his family around him" when his birthday and Father's Day are three weeks apart and whose daughters live halfway across the country and halfway around the world?). Apparently, he folds it in half and wears it like a shawl every night to fall asleep in watching the news. I love him so.

And Happy Father's Day to Nick. I am so lucky to have found a partner like him (again). He is a wonderful father to all three of our children, supportive, patient, loving, and generous. Heck, he even understands yarn stashing and supports that! He is such an involved parent that we really are partners in this raising kids game. I am so grateful that he sent me that email almost two years ago. I love him more than I can say, so I'm knitting him a Hap Blanket to bundle him up in some woolly love.

Unfortunately, it's raining (again), so no cookout tonight, but we did have pancakes for breakfast. I think naps and movies and pizza are on order for the rest of the day.

Enjoy your Father's Day, everyone!
