Interests: Often mistaken for a yarnivore, I am in fact a bear... Apart from climbing trees and devouring honey, my interests are few and far... or at least so I think! Parenting is most definitely my biggest passion, nurturing a human being is the best job in the world! However, that said, when she naps I do partake in dabbling with the ol' knitting needles and sewing machine, perhaps a little cookery if grizzly bear's home in time & without a shadow of a doubt... tea guzzler & cake muncher extraordinaire!

I've had this blog set up for several months now... and yet never, ever seem to post! I'm not quite sure why, I spend far too much time perusing Ravelry for yarn porn or Etsy for some cutesy pattern to make for baby bear. So it's not like I don't... Continue reading

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for... Continue reading

Well, it's been a whirlwind couple of months in the bear cave. Taking on an allotment, festive period, friends having babies... Oh where to start! Knitting (and most other crafty stuff!) has been put on hold as the allotment plot we've taken on has needed a lot of work. A... Continue reading

It's Monday once again, which means I've realised at the last minute I have no 'sharing' food for tomorrow morning... Let me explain. Little Bear goes to 'little school' (as she calls it) which is in fact a Steiner Playgroup. As part of the Steiner ethos, we end the session... Continue reading

What a beautiful hammock, perfect for those snoozy nap times. If only I had space for an adult sized one in my tiny flat! http://threadbear.typepad.com/thread-bear/2011/09/this-moment.html

Homemade cakes, bunting, lanterns to illuminate our camp, marshmellow toasting... Continue reading

A few months ago, I knitted a Raglan top-down sweater for a close friends little one. It wasn't the first.. and it certainly won't be the last. Knitting on circulars, top-down (no sewing up required!) means that I can get on with the parts I enjoy most... knitting! It took... Continue reading

Finally. Out of hibernation... (maybe a bear pun too far...) I've been knitting and sewing since baby bear was born and in combination with my primary job, of rearing a human, craft keeps me pretty darn busy! However, in order to add fuel to the fire, I've taken the plunge... Continue reading
