Calm before the storm | Celtic Cast On

Hurrican Kyle is heading this way and should hit my neck of the woods some time this evening. It is currently rated as a Category 1 hurricane but is expected to be reduced to a tropical storm by the time it hits. Right now it seems to be the calm before the storm, quite warm out, only a few sprinkles of rain so I thought I’d take the opportunity, while the weather… Read More »Calm before the storm | Celtic Cast On

Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » Saturday Stripes

Its a lazy day here on The Ridge. The remnant’s of Hurrican Danny is descending upon us today bringing  a ton of rain. I figured I’d make use of this lovely rainy day and start a new project. This is Super Natural Stripes by Fawn Pea. I figured with my cotton ease colour choices this would suit a girl or boy and with sizing up to 4 years I can definitely see… Read More »Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » Saturday Stripes


three by three | Celtic Cast On

I seem to be knitting everything in three’s as of late. By the third i’m definately ready for another project so its just as well i’m not knitting in four’s.                                                   These are the cutest little tissue socks I whipped up over my lunch break. Simple and small enough to mindlessly knit and finish within the day. I used left overs of sock yarn that I had laying around.… Read More »three by three | Celtic Cast On
