What big… | Celtic Cast On

What big ears you have…. What a long nose you have…. What itty bitty front teeth you have… If you are expecting the big bad wolf you won’t find him here. Unless of course you try to hurt her family they big bad Moolee will be on your tail! It’s my gentle protector, ever quiet ever faithful and ever protecting her herd. Feeling the love for my Molly girl!

Wheelin | Celtic Cast On

Just in case you all think that we are frolicking around on bare grass with no snow in sight, think again! We suited T up, the wind was frigid, for a little trek on the 4 wheeler. She hates to wear her mittens, too restrictive maybe, so we pulled on a pair of mine which she enjoyed wearing. We headed up a  logging road that was cut a few years… Read More »Wheelin | Celtic Cast On

Remember | Celtic Cast On

Remember the “If Tadpole is a girl cardi?” The cardigan that I started to knit after a sudden freak out of “What if this really IS a girl? I don’t have any clothes for a girl! T is filling it out nicely now so I thought I`d take the opportunity to get some modelled shots while it still fits. Big sister Molly is always up for a photo shoot and… Read More »Remember | Celtic Cast On

Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » One Sock Two Sock

I’ve been working away on my mystery socks. Time is definitely a ticking and I’m unsure at this point whether I’m going to make the June 30th cut off. One sock is complete and the other is in the works…. I was trucking right along until last night when I picked up my sock and realized I had  skipped the cuff altogether and started off with the leg chart. *groan*… Read More »Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » One Sock Two Sock


Officially a Farmer | Celtic Cast On

So yesterday marked a day…. the day Moose and I officially became farmers!! This is the pasture! We’ve be working on it for months now.

Itty Bitty’s | Celtic Cast On

Lately my knitting has been geared towards smaller projects, ones I can bang out in a day or two. Part of that reason is because I’ve sworn to cast nothing else on the needles until I get my Anne Spencer completed…… well….. Anne Spencer has pissed me off and I don’t know if you will ever get to see her. See mum was here the other night and in all… Read More »Itty Bitty’s | Celtic Cast On


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

First Snow! | Celtic Cast On
