Pattern(s) of the week: thinking of… hearts!

Hello people!
This post was supposed to go up last week, but well… We still have 2 days before Valentine’s, so I guess that technically we are still in time πŸ™‚

Here are some hearts/love themed patters that I have put together for you.

And if you’re single (like me! lol), or just not celebrating Valentine’s day, there are a ton of other uses for these projects! πŸ™‚ My personal fave are the last two. Cute cute cute!

“Not your Valentine” hat :) And I’m loving it!

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry for being a bit absent lately… I am writing the final chapters of my PhD thesis and it’s driving me nuts! lol I just want to be done with it as quickly as possible, but on the other hand I am sick and tired of the whole thing, so “oh joy”. Still three weeks to go before the final deadline. I guess I will survive till then πŸ˜€

 

Anyway, since I’m spending most of my evenings in and I was feeling the need of doing something different from the usual stuff, I have knitted a fair isle hat. The hearts pattern is from Ravelry and I have already used it several times, but the hat pattern is mine πŸ™‚ I had actually already knitted a very similar hat, but in Blythe size, so well, I virtually have a mini-me now! lol

Here are some pics… It took 3 evenings to knit it and I have been taking pics the next day to show progress. How do you like it?

I named it “Not your Valentine”… lol
