Soft and Snuggly

I'm back - I'm not sure where the weekend went the time seemed to go by very quickly.  I guess I must have been quite busy or something!!!

A brief recap of my weekend would be something like this.
Saturday - Laura arrived just after lunch time. She is very well being nearly 16 weeks pregnant and looking wonderful :)
She was being picked up by a chauffer at about 6pm to be taken away to the airport to fly to India. 
I'm so jealous of her travelling all the way there - mind you it is just for work and she will be working every day she is away (10 days). So I don't think she will see much of the countryside.
  She is due back a week on wednesday and coming back here before driving back home the next day. 
We have had a text from her telling us she got there safely and is in a very nice hotel. 

On Sunday Danny and I drove to Glasgow - he had to drop something off at work and I went along for something to do.  

Now today, being on holiday, I had to think how best to use it.  Well I went into a shop and bought some of this.
 Isn't that a great name for baby yarn, Snuggly.  It is so soft to the touch as well, there is no wool in it so hopefully it won't irritate the baby's skin
Yup, I've finally got around to buying some yarn and patterns to knit some goodies for my wee grandbaby for when it arrives next year. 
 We don't know yet what sex it is going to be so I bought some white, cream and yellow.  
The yellow is for a blanket (you can see it in the pattern on the right) and that is what I'm doing first. It looks fairly easy, but it is many years since I knitted anything so hopefully I can remember what to do!!!

Anyway today is Danny's and my wedding anniversary - 24 years, I don't know where all the years have gone, it certainly doesn't feel that long.  We are off out for dinner in a wee while to celebrate.

Now I wonder what to do tomorrow - I'll let you know :))) 

On a separate note:
Keep safe everybody who is in hurricane Sandy's path.  I've seen the news and it does look scary. 
Take care!!!

Happy Anniversary! Have fun knitting for the baby. :) That's always wonderful, isn't it! And, the knitting will all come back to you - it's like riding a bike. :)
Happy Anniversary!! I am happy that you got your yarn. Have fun making the blanket for your new grandbaby!
Congrats on your prospective new grandchild. Isn't it lovely knitting for them? Even if they are told the sex of the baby sometimes they are wrong. My daughter in law bought all pink things only to have a son so I think you are wise playing safe! Enjoy knitting!
I hope you had a wonderful evening of celebration.
