I love Valentine's Day. I like the idea of boys buying cliche boxes of chocolates and roses (though I don't know if I've ever gotten either). I love the colors red and pink (especially together!), and I love a heart. Its shape is so simple and satisfying, no? Lately I've found (or been shown) some pretty great Valentine's projects around the web. Here are a few of the ones I love:
Stellar socks! Free pattern here.
Gorgeous handwarmer! Free pattern here.
The loveliest cake. Free tutorial here.
See, who said Valentines Day needed to be expensive? I think this year I'm going to try my hand at candy making. I don't even like candy, but it sure seems crafty to make! And I've got a 1950s book that is truly inspiring me.
