Garden | Celtic Cast On

I have unsuccessfully tried to garden before…. mind you it wasn’t really a garden. We tried to plant pumpkins and corn *I think* in a pile of rocks…. really it was a terrible place to put a garden at our first house. Live and learn I guess.

This most gorgeous quilt was made by Pat of Pat`s Knitting and Quilting. If you haven`t had the opportunity to see Pat`s work yet, what are you waiting for, get right on over… Read More »Celtic Cast On » Blog Archive » Tadpole’s Quilt

It only seems fitting that this next package from Monika, Biko and Happy arrived just before Socktoberfest got underway. Tadpole’s first pair of socks!!! How incredibly adorable are these socks??? I love the garter stitch detail, so unique, I’ve never come across a pattern for baby socks that is this cute. I may have to give this pattern a go and make another pair for Tad.
