*grumble grumble* Blogger!!!!

Fingers crossed blogger is accepting posts this morning......... *nough said*

So I've been a busy bee the last few days! With knitting, charm making, posting, shoppping.
I had a request for some ferret stitch markers, so a hunting I went and found these little cuties!
This set is a custom order for the Crafty Weasel she has 5 ferrets *how perfect is that* and 5 stitch markers in the set. I hope she likes them.
If you have a request, please let me know, I'd do what I can to find you the perfect charms for your stitch markers. Is there a breed of pet you'd like, your occupation maybe, or how about another hobby other than knitting you'd like to have as stitch markers. Make your request to celticcaston at rogers dot com. Also keep an eye out for some new styles of markers coming in the next post!

Now I said I was also busy shopping...... Christmas shopping that is. It is time to start :) I've got two presents bought and wrapped for mister Moose and hid where he hopefully can't find them. I loooove buying for other people, its soo much fun!


This has also been knitting, weaving and sewing on buttons at top speeds. The postal date for the dutchians baby shower is today, and *phew* I got these last two sweaters complete with buttons done last night around 8 o'clock. Talk about cutting it close. They are off to the post office today.
One of the reasons I was cutting it sooo close with the baby sweaters was that I kind *looks around innocently* might have maybe cast on for my tweedy aran cardi when I should have been sewing up sweater........ WHAAAAAAAAT?????? I couldn't help it, its was giving me the stare down and I just couldn't TAKE it anymore!!!! I'm so glad I did though. The ribbing on this cardi is called a twisted rib, its a very interesting and fun pattern to knit. Once I started it I just couldn't stop. I have just begun the cable pattern wooo hooooo and by the sounds of it I'll get a little bit more done on sunday :) Roll on the weekend!

Can't wait to see the new cast on! Is it by chance the Tweedy Aran Cardigan from Interweave? I love that sweater & already bought the yarn for it! It's on my loooooong list!

What lucky babies! Love the Red Sweater too - I am in the market for some red yarn, as I joined the Red Sweater KAL!

I hate it when projects insist on being knit, even when you don't have time to knit them. I like the red.
