Happy Valentine's Day!

Graeme and I don't actually celebrate Valentine's Day on the 14th of February. Instead, we celebrate it on the 14th of March. It can be a little bit trickier because you don't have all the lovey-dovey window displays to remind you (I completely forgot the first time!), and most shops don't really stock Valentine's cards anymore.

So why do we celebrate it a mont late? It's got nothing to do with anti-capitalism or anti-communism or anything of that sort. It's cause the 14th of February is also my birthday, and a few years ago I was complaining to Graeme about how i NEVER get to really celebrate the day. Most likely, I had probably been looking at lots of cute Valentine's projects earlier that day, and felt a bit robbed of the occasion.

I have no idea how people born on Christmas cope with these situations.

Step 1: Start off with three chains to create a foundation ring. On this ring, chain three, and then add three double treble stitches. Step 2: Add three treble stitches. Step 3: To create the point of the heart, make one slip stitch, one double treble stitch, and another slip stitch. Step 4: Finish off the other side of the heart like the first. Add three treble crochet stitches, then three double crochet stitches. Chain three stitches, and finish it off where you started with a slip stitch. And that's it done!

Now go make loads!
