I've done it again haven't I.Another week has gone by and no Blogging.
It's been busy again Chez Bears . It was half term this week so it was off to Morecambe with the Grandbears for our bi-annual trip. We were one down this time as eldest Grandbear has her half term a week later thatn the other two this time. She was well miffed as this is the first time she's missed in 10 years .I thought she would have stopped coming by now as she is 18 but she loves our days out .
I've not got any pics as it was bloody cold when we did our walk along the Stone Jetty. I think it was the quickest we'd ever done .
There's been plenty of knitting and crocheting,
 This a scarf I made for GD 2's 16th birthday. She loved the blankets I made for Baby Bear in Rico Pom Pom so I made her a Dr Who length scarf in it . Went down very well.
 I've finished my Ripple Blanket and it does brighten the front room up.
 Another Pop Pom baby blanket this time for a friend of DD's
And this is my latest blanket . This time a Granny Ripple blanket . It's very quick to do .
I have now decided to curb my obsession a bit as it was encroaching on my knitting projects and my pattern designing. So now I only crochet after 9 pm in the evening till bedtime . It's amazing how much I still get done

Mmm it would appear LaalBear has taken another step into Technoland . Papa bought me an Ipod for Christmas . We already have one that we share and have it connected up to a docking station. It's fine but our tastes in music differ a lot . I have quite a varied taste from classic , new age , 40's-60's and a few modern. Papa is strictly a Country and Western and 50's/ 60's. . Now i've got my own it is filling up with allsorts and today I've learnt the joy of Podcasts. I've only downloaded a couple yet but if any of you know of any knitty podcasts i should try let me know .
We've also been busy looking after Baby Bear.
I know i've  been a bit remiss in posting pics of her but I don't like posting to many pics of my Grandchildren
for family privacy reasons .
But she is so cute I thought I'd indulge you . 
Can't believe it's nearly a year since she was born :0)
Now I just noticed the other day that I had gone past 20.000 hits to my Blog so to celebrate that and the fact I've been neglecting my readers I've decided to have a give away. 
Leave a comment on the blog and I'll put your name in a hat for a draw for this Limey Project bag .It makes  a good knitting bag for all you knitters and if you don't knit it's ok for make up etc.
I'll make the draw on Leap Year day 29th Feb :0)
Right ! that's all for today I'm going to get a bit of knitting done before we go out tonight with Papa's brothers PS how do you like my knitting alter ego .:0)))

I love the granny ripple blanket, looks like I'll be adding it to my never ending list of 'want to make'.
