Crocheted Hearts

Since it’s getting close to Valentine’s Day and (mostly) since I found this tutorial on Little Birdie Secrets, I decided to try my hand at some crocheted hearts. They work up really quickly and would be the perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day card, don’t you think? I won’t be making any new cards for Valentine’s this year because I still have a boatload left over from an event last year, which was hosted by they-who-shall-not-be-named (aka they-whom-I-wish-I-had-never-heard-of).

Anyway, here's what I came up with. I used a size 3 (3.25mm) crochet hook and size 10 cotton crochet thread on the smaller ones and a size 4 (3.5mm) crochet hook on the larger ones. I think I like the smaller ones better.

Never mind the cat fur on this one, I will remove it before I use it :-)

I made a snowman the other day. He’s not much to look at and he’s very small but it’s the first one I’ve ever made. Sand castles I can do…snowpeople, not so much. He’s almost all melted now and looks pretty pitiful. More pitiful, I should say.

I didn’t put hands, buttons, eyes, or a nose. By then I was cold enough and was happy just to have done one!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and may your team win tomorrow. We just watch for the commercials. Speaking of which, check this out:

It probably won’t make the cut for the Super Bowl, but it is hilarious! Enjoy.

  3. Your hearts are so darn cute!! Perfect for your cards. The snowman is just wonderful and great as is. It is so darn cold out I feel like a groundhog that didn't want to go out to see his shadow. LOLOL As soon as it warms I'll check with you on that coffee.
