Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » Knitting Vintage

Having two months of rain, fog and cold weather really makes you think about Autumn more and more.

Celtic Cast On » Harlot in Hali!

So Tuesday was the big day! Moose and I headed off to Halifax to see the Harlot. We stopped off in Moncton for some lunch on the way at our favourite restaurant. After we completely stuffed ourselves silly (ohhh for some more pudding chomeur)  it was off for another 3 hour drive with lots of knitting.
