Thank you for all you lovely comments. I can sit with her and make my bag (have done a test square to check the felt ability of this wool!!) I am using a nifty knitter loom. If I can find the safe place I have put my camera I'll post a pic!!

This I think is a much better photo of Jose. (Sssssshhhh!!! She is borrowing her brothers tie as he is having an op on his elbow) It is so lovely to see her happy after all this time. Makes me look back and think why on earth did I not try to mover her before. Already she has made some new friends.
I have decided (and reading some other blogs I am not alone) that I am going to have a mass finish blitz. I read on someones blog that the have 10 UFO's either knitting or crochet. I have no idea how many things I have on the go. But I have finally finished the little scarf from the Divas don't Knit book. Although I did end up modifying the pattern. I brought the wool in Totnes when I went there with Jose a few weeks ago. So it is now my Totness (I LOVE THAT PLACE!!) scarf.
So I am now going to write down a list of my UFO's. Maybe I should say I am not going to start anything else until I have finished all of them!!
Hope you have all had a good day. Jasper can't play sport for 3 months!

(If anyone can give me tips on how to add photo's. I have just lost one and it won't let me get it back!!)
I have been following http://sewonandsewon-noelle.blogspot.com/ and I really love her wall Hanging of St Ives. I have never been but it is on my list of Cornwall places to visit. And I had a letter from my pen pen (my letters come on lovely paper and always sealed with sealing wax, they are so lovely) who is looking to move down that way and had been to St Ives just last week. Small world!!
I think I am going to make a list of stuff to finish next time! Might spurr me on to finish something before I start something else new!!

Jose and I took Daz and Lily to Lyme Regis, just a 10 minutes drive down the road. We really are so lucky. Jose said I looked like a tourist, as I had my camera in my hand!!
Living down here you tend to avoid certain places in the holiday season.
We parked up the top car park (only £1 all day). My friend Angela and her Sister Joe run this cafe. If you go to Lyme you have to sample the cakes. Fantastic!! (Jose has a job there in the summer).
We then walked down to the harbour through the gardens, past the posh fish restaurant run by Mark Hix. What a view they have.
Lily had a fantastic time in the sea, although the first swim was by mistake. She followed Daz in before she knew what she was letting herself in for. Jose and I were laughing too much to get the camera out in time.
All the lights along the front in Lyme are like this. So beautiful.And the shops........
This seat was made buy children from Woodroffe School
I'd love to make one for the garden. So colourful.
And Jose took this photo of the spring flowers in Lyme.
We are lucky aren't we. (have to remember this on glum days)

Then I was contacted by a lady who told me about another group in Bridport, Bridport Machine Knitters. Saying that their group was failing and might have to shut. I ended up saying that I would pop along just to 'visit'. Dreading it slightly. Had got another lady to say she would come with me but this little part of Dorset was hit by snow yesterday so as I am in walking distance I ended up going on my own.
We met in the Friends Meeting House, at first I though what have I got myself into, but by the end of the evening I had actually enjoyed myself lots. I came away with a half started pair of socks - my first attempt at knitting on DPN. A pattern and a nice feeling.
I ended up 'having a go' on the sock as I was going to bed, and hour later I can understand why people get hooked on socks!!
Not photo today as My daughter has taken the camera to London to go to the X Factor Live tour. (Did point out to her and my niece that there are some lovely knitting shops in London and a little something for Mum for getting the tickets might not be a bad idea..........)
Had a real buzz when I saw a comment left by http://www.marmaladerose.blogspot.com/ on my blog. I really love her felt work. So yesterday ended up much better then it started.
