Episode 15 - Leafy Greens

February 23, 2011

I attempted crocheting while recording this time around. It made me talk kinda choppy. lol. Sorry y'all! I talk with my hands. This does not work so well when I'm trying to crochet and record. Dang!

Fiddle [Knits] Crochet:

I was working on a baby blanket in Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Sweet Potato.

The Snowflake Cloche has been posted. You can see it over on my website or head directly to About.com.

The Updated Market Bag is finally posted. I took so long to get pictures of this! It's here and my Mom is trying to convince me to give her the finished bag. She'll probably get it, but don't tell!

Fiddle Knits:

I just finished a Super Secret Project. I love it! You'll see it in the Fall.

The Leafy Greens Hat is in progress. I'm using yarn that was handspun by Valerie of the Knit Sibs Podcast. I'm not sure if Valerie sells her handspun, but I know she makes some super cute baby hats. Check out her Etsy shop.

Episode 14 – Many Hats

February 17, 2011

On The Needles/Off The Needles

The Love Birds Chapeau in two styles is done! You can pick from Super Slouchy or Semi Slouch. Both variations are included in the same pdf download. Purchase the pattern from my website or via Knit Picks.

I'm knitting on a secret hat in Zara Plus, which feels very similar to Karabella Aurora 8. I am still loyal to Karabella and would purchase Aurora 8 first just because the company has always been nice and helpful to me.

Coming up next are a few more hat designs in Knit Picks Chroma. The Thistle and Shamrock Beanie will be the next to appear. All the Chroma hats will be available as a collection at a later date.

On The Hook/Off The Hook

The Snowman Earflap Baby Hat is now available. I think it's cute, dad thinks it's absurd. Go take a peek and see for yourself. If you like it there are matching Snowman Baby Booties. Make a set! The patterns are free!

The Snowflake Cloche isn't available yet, but it will be very soon. Check the Fiddle Knits Facebook Page and Twitter for current design releases.

My Life

Chris and I are still looking for a house. Send us some good vibes!

I talked about staying at Oheka Castle for Valentine's Day. If you're interested you can view my photo album. Or check out the official Oheka Castle site.

Episode 13 – Fiddle Knits Goes Crochet!

February 17, 2011

I'm back again folks!

I've been getting questions via Twitter and email asking where I went. It's nice to know that I've been missed! Living arrangements have made it tough to record because uninterrupted time is so rare. Chris and I are in the process of looking for our own house, so hopefully the time/noise issue won't be an issue for too much longer. Keep your fingers crossed!

I've added crochet to my designs. And the best part? They're free! At least all the crochet patterns I post on About.com. You can find all the designs via my website (www.FiddleKnits.com) by clicking on the "Free Crochet Patterns" tab in the upper right.
