Knitting Hearts

The Lovey-Dovey Edition Logo

It’s the “Lovey-Dovey” edition hosted by Cobwebs, Cupcakes and Crayons! To celebrate I have been knitting these little hearts.

The pattern for them will be posted on Valentines Day if you would like to knit one.

I knitted these for my dear Mother who has been very ill and although recovering, she faces a lengthy convalescence . To aid her recovery I put together this little bag of love.

The suggestion is if she feels down or a bit sad she can put her hand into the bag of love and pull out a hand knitted heart filled with my love. The bag was hand felted by Anna Branford and I purchased it at this fete. The cards were also made by her and bought from the same place. The hearts were of course knitted by me and I love to give them to people  when I feel words don’t do it. They are very versatile and work their magic in every situation imaginable. No one can have too much love. So knit your self some little hearts and share the love.  Don’t forget to keep at least one for your self. XOXOX.

    Two things.

    1) My prayers and thoughts are with your Mum and I hope she is able to feel and get better as soon as possible ((hugs))

    2) I love those hearts! Any chance it’s something I can learn to make too?? Even with my limited skills? Which reminds me, I never remembered to put up my latest knitting pictures. lol I will try to do that as soon as I can. can’t wait for you to see them. :) I just kept making long chains though lol and at one point my dang chain started twisting. haha It looked cool, but it wasn’t anything I meant to do. lol

    How lovely! Will they be easy enough for someone like me (who can only knit scarves, pretty poorly) to do? :)

    Like

    • Yes. They are very easy. The “trick”is the double pointed needles. I know some people run shrieking from DPNs but they really do make it so much easier and you only have a few stitches to work with. Also scarves are fab and can lift any outfit sometimes more than a whole sweater! :)
