Fo Friday - Valentine edition

As well as being a knitter, before I had Angus I used to make cards. I still make the odd one but there just isn't time to make as many as I used to. However, this week I made a special effort and made this



I am really pleased with this, I did have a pattern that I found on Pinterest but I wasn't overly happy with the result so I decided to try myself and I think it looks really good! (If you would like the pattern let me know and I'll post it!) I think the grey card and the red heart looking really good together too!

Hopefully the husband will like it too! 

Well that's it for me today, we've got the in laws staying this week so we're off to the oriental museum - have a good day!

  5. I've been knitting some of those hearts (also found via Pinterest) this week - the pattern is a little clumsy. Yours looks lovely :o)

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean about the pattern, I made one and decided it looked uneven and thought I could have a go myself!
