Celebration

May was a month of celebration for us.  The first was a new baby in the family, a little girl born on May 10th.  Mother and baby are doing well, baby is beautiful and my sister is over the moon at being a granny for the first time.  Obviously I set about making a baby blanket, simple white bobbles with a pink edge. 


It's a smaller version of the chunky bobble blanket I made a few weeks ago.  


This time I started with a chain of 94 and used Patons merino extrafine DK - 7 balls in white (101) and 1 ball in tea rose (136).  The pattern for the bobble sequence and edging can be found here.


The other reason to celebrate was our 25th wedding anniversary.  This came as a bit of a shock: (a) it doesn't seem like we've been married 25 years and (b) I always thought that celebrating silver wedding anniversaries was something that old people did.  We're going on a little holiday to mark the occasion, we just haven't decided where yet - Italy is the favourite as we spent our honeymoon in Venice.


Hope all is well out there ...
