Frosty Acorn | Celtic Cast On

I recently finished a test knit for Suvi of Suvi Knits. I haven’t tested anything in a while and I honestly don’t really do testing anymore but when I saw Suvi’s sample I just knew that I wanted to knit it. It may have helped that I had the perfect yarn in my stash too. I knit this with: Yarn:  Schoeller and Stahl Fortissima Alpaka in colours 3011 and 3009 Needles:… Read More »Frosty Acorn | Celtic Cast On

Lady Sunnyside | Celtic Cast On

What better to way to forget about the stresses of moving for a while? A test knit of course! *Note: Planning an outfit for said photoshoot kind of slipped my mind when I packed 99.9% of my clothes in boxes…… Also packing the iron that I NEVER use was not in my best interest because of course I ended up needing it…* Needless to say I think I did well… Read More »Lady Sunnyside | Celtic Cast On

I think I misplaced  my blogging mojo some where in the last month but I think I’ve finally found it again.
