I think the cooler weather in Winter appeals to my knitting more. So as I’ve had the knitting needles out a lot recently I decided to have a go at making some hearts.
They look a bit strange as a work in progress, as they roll up all the time due to being stocking stitch. I might have a go at knitting the first and last stitches on every row to see if that helps. However, once sewn together with another they make rather pretty little hearts.
I’ve made up five now in various sizes and colours. My next plan is to stuff them lightly and add some embellishments, maybe a button and some ribbon to hang them from. I shall have to raid my ribbon stash and see what I can find. I think they would also look nice with initials added – particularly for a gift for a loved one.
I’d love some feedback on these and any ideas you have for decorations or colours to try.
Leave a comment below and I’ll put all names in a hat and pick a winner of a knitted heart on Feb 14th.
