Zip it | Celtic Cast On

A few weeks ago T took quite an interest in my knitting bag. It was carted around the house, shook, turned upside down, you name it and my poor knitting bag went through it. It wasn’t long before the need to open the bag then consumed her and she did all she could to get into it. I decided it was time for me to teach her how to unzip it.   She picked… Read More »Zip it | Celtic Cast On

DUCK! *Pic of the week #1* | Celtic Cast On

I’ve been thinking how I’d like to capture a picture of something each week that I can look back on down the road. As T is getting old I seem to be forgetting to take pictures of  the little things I’d like to remember. So each week I’ll be taking a photo of something I’d like to remember, it may not always be interesting to you  but it’ll be added to the memory bank of… Read More »DUCK! *Pic of the week #1* | 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
