Knit to your heart’s content

Valentine’s Day is this Friday!
Not all of us celebrate this occasion, but few would argue that any excuse for spreading some love can be all bad.

heart

Take back Valentine’s Day and make this snugly anatomically inspired heart for someone close to your heart.  It’s not so hard to make for knitters who are adept with the double pointed needles and it knits up fast too.

This pattern appears in Knitty Magazine – published in 2008.  I made it up!

I also wrote up a little tutorial on how to start the project in case anyone has trouble.  You can find it HERE 

I heart rainbows

If anatomical heart’s don’t make your heart go boom, then I will leave you with something that certainly will.  Combine babies, with hearts and rainbows – that’s off the charts on the “cute-scale”.  The pic above is from the Tin Can Knits pattern called “I Heart Rainbows”.  We have it here at the Knit Cafe or you can find it on ravelry HERE

Last minute V Day presents anyone?

Our Hat Workshop happens to be the day before Valentine’s Day.  It’s a good opportunity to learn how to knit in circles using those pesky double pointed needles. A hat is fast to knit and there’s a good chance if you start on the evening of the 13th it will be ready by evening on the 14th to present to your sweetheart.
