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.

A few months back, my 10-year-old nephew, Joey, asked me to knit him a blanket, specifically he wanted a red, white and blue blanket. (Because he was born on the 4th of July, those are his colors). So I decided to … Continue reading
If the past few months has been a bit of a reading drought, there has also been a flood of crafting. I’ve posted a lot of the beaded items as I finished them but I built up a pile of … Continue reading
I grew up on Long Island, NY where there are some incredibly beautiful vineyards where you can go, enjoy a glass of locally made wine (or two) and take in the beauty of the vines. This inspired me to create: … Continue reading
I have been so absorbed with the store and with school that I have been neglecting my Christmas crafting list shamefully. I know a lot of people don’t start their Christmas shopping until much later than this but I am … Continue reading
