Valentine's Day :: something to crochet



I seem to be in a crochet mood, lately. I'm still working on the granny squares. I have about 14 ready now - I'm taking it slowly, one at a time. It seems I'm not the only one with granny squares on her mind. For a nice overview and inspiration, check out Mon Ami's blog. Granny squares not only work great for blankets and pillows. The other day, I saw a lady on the metro with the most exquisite granny squares scarf draped around her neck, in soft angora wool, earth tones combined with purples and blues. So beautiful! Too bad winter is too far along otherwise I would have started on one. Maybe something to keep in mind for next year...

Now, in between the granny square oohing and aahing, I did some Valentine's day inspired crocheting as well. I whipped two hearts together: a flat one and last night a three-dimensional one.

In case you fancy to make some of your own, I plan on having a how-to together, hopefully by tomorrow. So, if your in the mood for some Valentine's Day inspired crocheting, stay tuned and get out crochet hooks and red yarns...

mooie foto, en hartje is goed gevonden, kan evt aan een leuk kapstokje gehangen worden met lavendel in, zou een nuttig geschenkje kunnen zijn!
