My lovely crochet rainbow hearts! This one is coming along. I started this around Valentine’s Day of this year and have been slowly pumping out a few every week. This is the project that I like to slip into my purse when taking my kids to the playground or if I know I’ll be waiting in line somewhere, because the hearts are small and relatively simple.
I use a lot of acrylic for my projects, because – well, as a mother of two boys, most stuff around here needs to be machine washable. I also have a little one who is very sensitive to the itchiness of wool, too. And while I adore natural fibers, above all things have to be functional here. But there are a few projects that I make with myself in mind, little treasures that I keep. And this is one of them. Not to mention, I am in love with the yarn. It’s the Chroma Worsted line from KnitPicks in “Lollipop”.
The pattern is a $4 Ravelry download with lots of pictures and a very easy, step-by-step tutorial, great for beginners and experienced crocheters alike. If I keep going at the pace I’m going, maybe I’ll have mine done by Valentine’s Day of next year!
