Crochet Hearts

crochet hearts
If you are looking for a fun, quick, addictive project (because I’m sure you, like me, are always finding yourself with nothing to do, right?), these small crocheted hearts are so sweet! I sat yesterday while the kids were at their after school activities and did a bunch of them. I think I’ll make them into a Valentine’s garland of some sort. I am mixing them with larger crocheted hearts (pattern found here) and maybe some miniature granny squares.

I always say I will use my stash for little projects like this. That’s why these are in this pink, cream, charcoal heather and grey heather yarn, it’s what I had on hand. But then, as usual, I start imagining other colors, that I don’t have.
It never really is about busting the stash for me. Not entirely. There, I said it…
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

    NPR had an article about the show on this morning. Sounds very funny. I’ll be sure to check it out.

    I am soooo excited about Portlandia, seeing that I’m a Portland girl myself and I love geeky funny TV.
    I’m all over those little hearts. So glad I finally learned to crochet.

    And my favorite line from the clip – “you can throw a bird on it and call it art.” Ha!!

    These are sweet. Another reason to crochet. Thanks for the TV show tip — always looking for good comedies.

    Adorable! I tell myself 4 times a day that I need to learn to crochet…
    Also, I feel slighted by IFC. I mean, I am pretty sure the dream of the 90’s is still alive in parts of Seattle, too. (Man, is that song ever an earworm.)

    How funny is that show! It really is a throwback to the 90s! Even though I love that crowd, they were ripe to make fun of! The chicken scene!

    Too cute. I need to make a few hearts with my stash yarn (um, right). A mutual friend (greenclogs up there) was telling me about Portlandia today. I am going to have to check it out.

    You will LOVE Portlandia! So hilarious. I wonder if people outside of Portland will find it as funny as we will…

    Its spot on in so many ways. I love Portland!

    Those hearts are so fast, I quickly made quite a pile of them the other night.

    “Did you even notice this tote bag before? But now it has a bird on it…” So funny!

    In less than an hour, you and your hook could easily make a garland! xo

    Happy to pass along good TV, there is a real lack of it these days, and I need things to watch while I crochet : D

    I know, I feel slighted too! We should keep the 90’s dream in Seattle a secret though, you think? We definitely don’t need more traffic on these streets : D

    The chicken scene was my husband’s favorite. So funny!

    Thanks Heather, you will love making those hearts, stash or not (I always vote not).

    Isn’t it funny?? Time will tell what outsiders think of the show, but I absolutely love it, it is dead on in so many ways.

    Gotta check that out! I never bust stash either. When making the napkins I didn’t have all the right coordinates so I ended up buying fabric…
    Seven more weeks and life slows down, then I’m going to sit with you, a cuppa joe and a hook!
