A Great Day!

Since I have reached my eighties I have become much more emotional and after a good ten minutes of crying I am (almost) stable enough to write a post to say that my Grand-daughter has had her baby today.   Weighing in at more than nine pounds she is a gorgeous little girl;  they have called her Ula.

Did you knit that beautiful blanket?

Congratulations. What a beautiful great grand-daughter. Welcome to the world, little one.

Congratulations, to them and to you! The birth of a child is a momentous event, and one that anyone of your (or my, somewhat younger) age recognises as potentially dangerous, so I;m received to hear she's safe, and beautiful. She looks a very healthy size too. Enjoy her when you get to have cuddles! I love the smell of newborns - there's nothing quite like it, is there.

Congratulations to the young family, and to you as the Great-Grandmother! Wow, more than nine pounds, that's impressive!
I was wondering about the blanket, too, like Gail said above; did you make it?

Thank you for all your good wishes - I shall pass them on.
As to the blanket - no I didn't knit it. My pram blanket in Wensleydale wool will be sent up by post on Monday, together with a couple of first size jackets I have knitted and which I rather think will ne too small. Luckily I have already knitted three larger size ones!Normal service will be resumed when I have come down to earth!
