Olivia's Heart Valentine Kit

Olivia's Heart

Send your Valentine (or Galentine!) a kit to make this adorable heart! The kit includes about 10 grams of a worsted weight wool (Germantown from Kelbourne Woolens) in shades of red or pink, a heart stitch marker, the pattern, and a Valentine card.

Valentine's Heart kit

The idea for this came from one of the mini-Gardeners, Miss Olivia. She wanted to know how to knit a heart, so I scribbled down a quick idea for her to follow! After knitting up a couple hearts, we decided that it would be fun to send these to our favorite knitters as a Valentine's Day gift. Or treat yourself to a Valentine kit and make the heart for YOUR Valentine (or keep it for yourself... you deserve love from yourself too!).

If you're sending this to someone else, be sure to include in the indicated section what you'd like your included Valentine card to say. If you'd like to send multiple kits, please add each additional address in the that section. To guarantee delivery by February 13th, please place your orders by Monday, February 8th. As our Valentine's gift to you, this kit will ship for free when you use the code OLIVIASHEART at checkout (valid only on this kit; good through February 14th). Happy Valentine's Day!

Back In Stock!

More of the Harry Potter and Star Wars book, as well as the Cast On, Bind Off books + a new addition to the YG shelf, Increase/Decrease by Judith Durant. Beyond the handy information contained within the pages, I love these titles because the book lays open flat due to the spiral binding.

What's On My Needles

On My Needles, Feb 1
I decided to commit to not just one sweater for the Winter Virtual KAL, but two. It's entirely possible that I'm out of my mind! I knew I wanted to make Recoleta, because it is stunning and the challenge looked really fun. But I also knew that I would need something simple to knit during the times when I couldn't focus. Hence, my second sweater, Harvest, was cast on! Also seen in the picture is my finished, albeit not blocked nor are the ends woven in, Vineyard Cowl. What's been on your needles lately? Whatever it is, I hope it's bringing you comfort and a little happiness during this time!
