So last night it started to snow, about 6.30pm. Our two boys were very excited and by 8pm they were outside, in the dark, playing with the snow. It was so lovely to look out of the upstairs window (with the outside light on) to see them playing around, and having fun. It was even more lovely, because it was warm inside.

On the knitting front, I have been very busy knitting hats for my friend. In between I am knitting a christmas present for my grandaughter, I can't say what on here, because my daughter is one of my few readers, and I want it to be a surprise. I started to knit one of those rico scarves today as well, it's looking good.

I have also at long last got some beautiful manos laceweight to knit a snood. I don't know if I would wear a snood as it is, but the wool is so beautiful, and the pattern. I can't wait to start it, but I am setting myself a goal of finishing the present, the 2 sleeves on my husbands 2 year old jumper, and also I have a cross stitch to finish for my mum. So probably won't start the snood until after Christmas. Well that's what I tell you all, but I have a sneaky feeling that I won't stick to my word!!

I'm back

Got to Heathrow, and lo and behold look what I see, a Cath Kidston shop, how exciting. I couldn't give my hubby the slip, so only got a quick look round the shop before having to move on. To be honest, there wasn't anything I needed anyway.

Had a brillian two weeks away. Amazing sights, sounds and smells. The last day there was 30 degrees, bit too hot for me. We were in Tamil Nadu for most of the time, helping out in a school and orphange. Met some lovely children, who were so sweet. One girl wrote me a lovely letter saying how much she would miss me, and she said"You are beautiful even though you are a big lady!!"I think it was meant as a compliment.

Glad to be home with my family though, I think they missed me a bit, and my cooking, so that was good. I did manage to do a bit of knitting while I was away. I started a sock, and knitted a dishcloth.

Back home, I have finished knitting my grandaughters cardigan, I just need to sew on the sleeves and it's finished, so I will put a photo up, when I am done.
