The 14 days of Valentine tribute to the love of couchsurfing continues.

DAY 4 – (SMALL VILLAGE NEAR) ARRAS, FRANCE

  • HE: Air Quality Specialist (e.g. for huge tunnels through mountains)
  • SHE: Disabilities Awareness Specialist
  • CHILDREN: Son, Son, Son

After couchsurf #3, we spent one night in a motel in Caen.  Then off we drove to Arras, in the north of France, close to Belgium.  I’ll keep this one short and sweet because I have already blogged several times about this family.  You can read about their (certifiably) insane generosity here.  IMHO, a great post worth reading.

Thank-you, Onlyboy, for taking this photo.  A thick, warm and comfortable homemade hat.

I knit this hat in Cascade Yarns Lana Grande.  This yarn is 100% Peruvian Highland Wool and quite chunky.  I am happy with the way this hat turned out because I think it suits Arrassurfer perfectly.  She is blonde with a big personality and a lot of warmth, kindness and character.  The hat is dark blue, knit on large (9 mm/US#13) needles with a distinctive pattern.  This pattern, “Sweet Hat”, was a lot of fun to knit and can be found for free at Cascade yarns.  Note, I decided not the make the pom pom.
