Happy Friday, everyone! With less than 24 hours until Love Day, I thought I’d dig up a few pics of Valentine’s projects past and present. Everything you see below can be made in less than 1 day, so if you’ve got a few free hours and a crafty spirit you’ll have no problem getting at least one of these puppies made! Click on each link for necessary how-to info.
Card-io: Recycled card stock with Soy Fusion Hearts.
Rhinestone Wristbands: Treat yourself to a little V-Day spah’kle, by adding vintage buttons or brooches to simple, garter stitch wristies.
Heart Tie: The pattern for this tie is in me and Adrienne’s upcoming book, AwareKnits (Fall ’09). It takes a little more time to make anyway, but you can add a wee mitred heart (see above) to any, pre-made (knit or sewn) tie for a jiffy gift for your guy!
Lastly, if you’re looking something for that little lady in your life, whip up a pair of felt slippers using Simplicity pattern #2867. Then, make them your own by decorating them your way! I made punch-embroidered heart appliques and hand-sewed them on the toes, using the blanket stitch.

The YarnYAY! 𝘔𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩 𝘉𝘰𝘹'𝘴 featured shade of 𝘔𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘰𝘺𝘢 𝘔𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘰 𝘓𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 (Desert Jasper), feels right at home with this holiday, so 𝘄𝗲'𝗿𝗲 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗮 𝗯𝗼𝘅 𝘁𝗼 𝗧𝗪𝗢 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀! See below for details.
Side note (that likely no one by me will care about): Giving away hanks on St Patrick's Day, of my Montoya Merino yarn feels appropriate as my dad used to always say that my brother and I were Spirish (Spanish + Irish). Thank you for listening.
