Birthday Hearts

It was my birthday at the weekend and I treated myself to Jem Weston’s new book ‘Cute Little Knits’.  I fell in love with the little Fairisle hearts and thought they would be great to take along to my local crafty group this week, as its a Valentine’s theme.  My local yarn store didn’t have the cream (Bell Busk 376) Rowan Fine Tweed in stock so I substituted a lovely grey called Buckden (364).  It worked out really well.  My cute little Fairisle heart is currently hanging on a pink ribbon on the bathroom door – I’m not sure I could part with it for valentines!  Everyone else in the house is rather keen on owning it too so I thought perhaps it would become a ‘house heart’ and we could share!  Then again, I might whip up a few more.  I could see myself getting carried away like I did crocheting snowflakes at christmas.  These cute little hearts would look lovely hung up in a group in a window on a matching ribbon. Project Ravelled here.
