A Bit More Christmas Love


I'm still knitting away at my Little Christmas Love Hearts, and have put the instructions on how to make them on ravelry for free. I'll put a link in my sidebar tonight. Making them is a bit compulsive, as the knitting does not take very long, but the fun is in deciding how to decorate them.

I love doing a little bit of embroidery, but it is also quite fun making them Fair Isle. I've put some blank Fair Isle charts at the end of the pattern, as I definitely have not explored all the options.


And finally the sun came out this afternoon, so I pottered around in my back garden, hanging up the decorations, and photographing them. I do think my neighbours might think I'm a bit nuts.

  4. Let your neighbors think you're crazy! Then hang a couple of them on their trees. Share the love.

  11. The flowers are lovely. You could be making these all year and still never have the same decoration. Mad or not it was worth taking the photos in the garden.:)
