Happy Birthday Dad

There has been a lot of excitement in the store this week with new arrivals. I totally forgot that a shipment is on the way from Hedgehog Fibres. The parcel has arrived in Mississauga and I'm hoping we'll see it early next week. Perfect timing - there is a new pattern from Ambah O'Brien.
Pattern: Nelia (purchased on Ravelry).
Yarn: Fingering weight
Inspired by the delicate yellow blossoms of the Golden Wattle, Nelia is named after the Australian Aboriginal word for the Golden Wattle, or acacia, tree. Nelia has elegantly tapered ends and is worked sideways with decreases forming a central spine. The airy lace chevron motif makes this the perfect project for warmer weather, and Nelia is stunning worked in silk or linen blends, but is equally lovely in merino. 
Choose from two sizes – a scarf knit with one skein, or a luxurious two-skein wrap. Instructions for customizing the length of your wrap or scarf to make the most of your yardage are also included.

Dad and Beth took Roko and Lucy to the dog park today. Lucy loves lying in the stream.

Today is my dad's 75th birthday. We're having dinner out tonight at one of his favourite restaurants. One of his birthday presents is a gift card to Suds. Some one's really big dog slobbers and sheds in their car.
