This is what my dining room table looks like right now, and it will for a few more days while I gather some decorating inspiration for a Valentine's Day Party I'm having next weekend. I went pink crazy and rummaged the cupboards and pulled out everything pink hued or close to it. And then feeling that crafty craving, I searched Ravelry for the perfect heart pattern to knit; one knit with two needles, not four. I found Be My Valentine by Chris de Longpre. It has an ingenious construction, knit from the bottom up on two needles and only one small invisible seam in the center to stitch up. Careful, they are addictive to make! The felt hearts were made from some Mary Flanagan hand-dyed and felted wool I got from Purl Soho while on a visit to New York a few years ago. I wish I could have bought every color bundle, it's all so gorgeous. Here's the pattern for the felt Sweetheart Charms.
