Dreaming of a wet Christmas

Knitted snowmen by Sue Inglis
Well what weather! This Christmas will surely be remembered as the wettest Christmas.

On Monday it took my younger daughter five and a half hours to do a half hour journey by train from Guildford. When the train did finally get moving it struck a tree on the track and was too badly damaged to continue.  

On the drive to see my mother yesterday in East Grinstead we saw several cars abandoned in deep water on the road. Luckily my son-in-law is a good driver and steered us safely through flood water. He has an extra person to protect now. On Christmas Eve he and my lovely girl Amy announced that they're expecting a baby! Visitors to Handmade Happiness will know this already! I haven't been able to keep quiet about it. A first grandchild on the way is a BIG DEAL! But now the three month scan has taken place I am officially allowed to announce it online. Ta da!

My daughter wants me to knit a 'whole wardrobe' of clothes.They must be ultra soft but able to go through the wool cycle on her washing machine...all suggestions welcome.

Did you have a nice Christmas? I sincerely hope that you are having a wonderful time.
