New Yarn for Valentine

are you slowly getting in Valentine's mood too?

I got some cozy new yarns for a little Valentine project. all creamy white, there's SoftFun by Scheepjeswol, and two types of wool: Einband and L├ęttlopi from Iceland.

the idea I have in mind is to crochet a little heart garland of heart silhouettes. the kind of long shaped, Scandinavian looking hearts I like so much. let's see how this will work out. both wool yarns are good for felting too, that might be interesting to try. also, another idea I have is to crochet around a little wire and shape that into hearts. as usual, plenty of ideas and possibilities…

clearly I lost myself when we finally got to see mr. Sunshine today, some perfect light to take pictures. hope you'll enjoy them



  1. Beautiful photos as ever Maaike, and that yarn, oh that yarn....swoon! It looks divine. And i'm sure that whatever you decided to make and how you make it will look simply gorgeous!

    Take care

  3. Hope that you have lots of fun with your hearts, I posted a heart garland/bunting today that I had made - feel free to pop by and have a look! I like the idea of white hearts!! xx

  4. Beautiful yarns, each so gorgeous and tactile and calm, I can't wait to see them made into sweet little hearts. I love white, in all its creamy and tranquil shades! Chrissie x

  5. I love your choice of white hearts...can't wait to see what you come up with. Totally in Valentines Day mode here. bunting and hearts attached to twigs. Sachets and much fun. Have a lovely day
