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 am working on a paper for my poetry class, comparing and contrasting Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” with Keat’s “Ode to a Nightingale.” I was reading a bit of “The Raven” aloud which, clearly, disturbed the cat’s nap. He got … Continue reading
I am the only person I know who would sit through a lecture on Romantic poets and have my head take that information and turn it into a parody of an Alanis Morissette song. “Isn’t he Byronic? Don’t you think? A little too … Continue reading
