Hello! I'd like to thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post with the blue/green harlequin blanket, it really is so nice being part of this bloggy world, even if Facebook and Twitter and Instagram have moved in and changed things up a bit, blogging is still the way I like to communicate best and is still my first love! I fear my stint at responding to each comment on my blog didn't last long, sorry about that, I will keep trying to improve on this side of things, and to comment more on all your lovely blogs too, I am trying to fight my reclusive tendencies and get interacting!
I thought these little knitted hearts were kind of appropriate for sharing the love back to everyone who reads this blog, aren't they kind of cute?
When we were in the city last weekend I visited one of my favourite book shops and bought a couple of new crafty books, one of them was 'The Ultimate Book Of Baby Knits" by Debbie Bliss, and these little hearts were one of the patterns in it. ( lots of lovely patterns in this book!)
They are supposed to become parts of a mobile, but I am planning to make quite a few of them and make a dangly heart garland thingy for my bedroom wall.
I have a picture in my head, so we will see if it turns out how I imagine.
I love how I can practice my very basic fairisle skills on these little hearts. There is also a pattern for some gorgeous fairisle hangers that I am working up to having a go at. They are really pretty!
It was nice to pick up the knitting needles for a change, I am quite inspired to knit at the moment, it is really cold here and the fire is going, and knitting just finishes off the picture of cosiness.
I think a tiny knitted heart with little spots of colour would be pretty cute
for a homespun brooch, don't you? Just have to find my tiny knitting needles....maybe 2mm?
Anyway, I'd better go and help with the dishes, talk soon!
