Here are just a few of the projects (and a small amount of candy-making) that I have done in preparation for Valentine's Day. Enjoy! All of the patterns linked in this post are free crochet patterns! Be sure you check them out. XO
Cross Your Heart Coffee Cozy
This was my first Valentine's project. I made it in January while my mom was in surgery. It works up so fast and makes a great teacher's gift!
This didn't quite fit on my cup, but it was the perfect size for a wrist warmer. I'm keeping it for myself and need to make a second one for the other hand. This is the perfect project for those scrap yarns!

Amazing Grace Headbands
Believe it or not, before this year, I had only made ONE headband/ear warmer. Crazy, huh? I set out looking for a free pattern that had a decent texture, but would also be a mindless project for sitting in the hospital waiting room and look great! I found the Amazing Grace Headband pattern from Beatrice Ryan Designs.

Add Hearts to Anything
These were made with the same pattern linked above, but I added a heart to each one since they are Valentine's Day gifts.

Chocolate Truffles and Crochet
I love truffles! They are the most amazing food in the world. Eating them is an experience...you don't just pop it in your mouth and chew....you really savor the flavor and enjoy every tiny moment because it's just that good. I have made my own and I think I finally have the recipe right and I'll be sharing it tomorrow. Here is the teaser photo.
