So many little time

I am having so much fun visiting all the OWOH blogs (at least trying to visit them all). Hope I can get through them all by Feb. 14.

Don't you love it when you go to one blog that takes you to another that takes you to another, and soon you forget what you were originally searching for but are so happy at where you ended up?  Well one of my fav blogs to start the "don't know where it will end" journey is One Pretty Thing.  If you are crafty and have not visited this treasure trove, you really must put it on your DAILY travels.  I don't know how these ladies keep up, but every day they have wonderful links to crafty goodness all over the web.  At the moment I am obsessed with crochet.  So I usually start wandering to crochet sites. My latest little find is JulieK. She has the cutest little crochet heart pattern. 

The pattern was a little tricky to follow and I'm not sure I got it quite right.  I had trouble at the point and then again at the top (I know, kinda crucial for a heart).  You'll see Julie's hearts are much more "heart" shape whereas mine are more "heart-ish" shaped.  I'd be curious to know if anyone else tried this pattern.

I had been working on an odd little doily pattern that I got in the mail, but was getting bored and thought these hearts would spruce it up.  What do you think?  The home-critics were not that impressed but I thought it was cute enough to put on the entrance table w/ a candle.  (Valentine day decorating...done!)  I have misplaced the odd little Crochet magazine where I got the doily pattern.  If I find it I will add that link as well. 

My photographic skills definately need improving. I would put more items on Etsy, if I could figure out how to get the pics to look more appealing! This is another of my 2010 resolutions.

Enjoy the hearts!  ~mly

  2. Hi Molly! Thanks for the link back.

    When I come to the end of the last row I weave the end through a few stitches on the back and then tug on it a bit to create that V. Then I tie the two yarn tails together so the V stays put. Hope that helps!

    Your doily is cute!
