Welcome to Celtic Knits!
Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs.
I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher.
I am also the designer / craftsperson behind Ciarrai Studios, (http:www.etsy.com/shop/ciarraistudios), your source for handcrafted jewelry, knitted accessories and more!
In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.

I guess I am still in a rather dramatic mood after making the Mina Harker Necklace because I spent the morning poking all over Etsy looking at really cool Steampunk, Gothic, Masquerade and Fantasy jewelry and accessories.
Ok. I seriously need to get this clock!
Things have been a bit slow lately. School is over and I don’t have access to a working car so I have been stuck at home a lot more than I would prefer and life has gotten a bit on … Continue reading
In addition to totally lusting after the Spineless Classic Pride and Prejudice poster, I am also drooling over this Pride and Prejudice Bracelet from JezebelCharms‘ Etsy store. In fact, I love JezebelCharms’ work so much that I have several of her … Continue reading
