Knit Some Hearts For Your Sweetheart
I saw these over at a blog I follow...A Friend to Knit With...you can print the pattern for free. I did, and now I've become OB.SESSED with making them. OBSESSED I'm sayin'! I had the perfect little ball of red yarn in my stash...a cashmere I ordered on ebay from China for a pair of fingerless gloves I knit for my sister a while ago.
They are super quick and easy...You knit up the two sides, then use a blanket stitch to sew them together, add a pinch or two of stuffing...and you have cuteness :)
I made some to tie on a few Valentine treats...I thought they would also be pretty in a glass jar I have from my mother in law.
I have the pattern memorized and can knit a few in the dim morning light after the older two kids get on the bus while I'm sipping my coffee waiting for Cub to get up. At this rate who knows how many I'll have done by Valentine's Day!?
