Back on The Ridge | Celtic Cast On

I’m Baaaack! *taken the day we left for Ireland* Ok really I’ve been back for weeks now but swimming lessons are in full swing as well as lots of outdoor play so I haven’t had much time for blogging. *Aboard the first flight, little did I know I was going to feel like puking for the next 5 1/2 hours shortly after this was taken* I managed to hold down… Read More »Back on The Ridge | Celtic Cast On

18 months! | Celtic Cast On

Hard to believe little T is halfway to being two already!! We tried Pigtails for the first time last week and although I had to distract her to get them in she was very good about leaving them alone.

She pretend talks… Read More »18 months! | Celtic Cast On

Knit Knit Knit | 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. Things have been kind of busy and the time I had to myself I really wanted to knit instead of blog but hopefully I can get back into the swing of things. There’s lots to blog about and since this is a “knitting” blog we’ll start with that. I’ve… Read More »Knit Knit Knit | Celtic Cast On

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

Spring has sprung | Celtic Cast On

Today may be the first day of Spring but last weekend was definitely the beginning of Spring on The Ridge. The road is finally clear of snow and ice so we look the dogs for a good hike down the road. T realized that she could now walk on the driveway without slipping and sliding. She took off up and down the driveway a million times, she loves to be… Read More »Spring has sprung | Celtic Cast On

Stash Enhancement | Celtic Cast On

A little birthday stash enhancement! I was expecting this to be a lighter purple than it is but I’m thinking it will still work for a spring project I have in mind.

Cartmel Love | Celtic Cast On

Have you heard the name Jeannie Cartmel in your travels?? Maybe you would recognize her designs first. I’m absolutely smitten with her work. Jeannie’s designs are the mostwonderfulcablicioussocks you ever did see. I’ve been fortunate enough to test knit a few of Jeannie’s designs as of late. They are every bit as lovely as they look.
