Well this year I've been on a quest to find the perfect crochet heart.
This is my first attempt. I wanted a puffy felted heart. So I double layered the hearts and joined them with a decorative border. Then I felted the wool in my washing machine. The result: LUMPY. Yuck.
Second attempt. This heart turned out really cute. I should have used a smaller hook. But I didn't like all the steps. Too much fastening off and rejoining yarn.
My final attempt. WINNER! WINNER! WINNER! This little heart it so cute! The only problem I had is that I ran out of stuffing. So I had to borrow some from another unfinished crochet project. But it's adorable, right? You can get your very own for FREE when you make a purchase at FlyAKite now through January 30th.

Part of the reason I love Valentine's Day is that I am a hopeless romantic. It's true. I believe in soul mates. I just think my soul mate has gotten lost. I hope one day we find each other. My Mr. Wonderful is out there somewhere. In the meantime, I will continue to re-read my Jane Austins and dream.
