norway / love.

I’m not big on Valentine’s Day for the romantic aspect. I could care less about roses and candlelight dinners and expectations. I’m more throw me a mini box of chocolates like this favorite and make all the cute Valentine’s things.

It’s really about the making, isn’t it?

First up, of course, is a hearts hat for February. I knit this one up using two skeins of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in blue surf for the main color and bergamota for the hearts. It came out just as I hoped–slightly slouchy, incredibly bright. I did modify the pattern a bit (From Norway With Love) to accommodate a short heat by putting one less row of hearts in the color work section.

    1. THANK you so much for your kind words and for stopping by my blog! Everyone can be a color work master! It’s all about proper tension, selecting colors that will create A LOT of contrast to one another, and plenty of wet blocking. Cheers!
