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!
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.

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.
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.
