Love Hearts Day

I’ve been hosting an unofficial Crochet-Along for my Love Hearts pattern – just for fun – and I wanted to share all the lovely hearts with you today. I don’t really approve of Valentine’s Day (because I hate the commercialism, and that anyone would think you need a special day to tell your loved ones how you feel about them), but I do approve of taking the time to make things for people you care about. That’s why I’m so happy to see how many of you have found the time to crochet up some of my Love Hearts, and how many different things you’ve found to do with them.

I don’t really know where to begin, so these are just in the order I happened to grab the pics in. So I can get them all posted before V-Day ends, I’ll keep my commentary short with just the name credits for each pic, but please know I’m enthusing about each one really!

TheGrouchyCairn, who wrote such a sweet message to go with her masses of hearts, I thought I’d quote part of it here (click through to read the rest):

My mom lives in a retirement community. I worry about the loneliness of seniors and decided to make some pins for her apartment building floor. As I started I felt my heart leading me to make little door hangers as well so that those who do not go out as often would get a little valentine heart for sure. I ended up making Iā€™m sure over 50 of the littlest hearts. I was thrilled that I was able to deliver them anonymously, (there is almost always someone out roaming the halls or looking for someone to visit!) By the end of the day almost all the heart pins, (left on a table by the elevator,) had been taken and every door on floor 8 had a heart!

Aww, how lovely! There are loads more hearts out there – 99 projects on ravelry alone! – but I’ve just highlighted the ones here who took part in the CAL or linked back to my pattern in their blog posts.

I hope this explosion of hearts has brightened your day as much as it has mine! Thanks so much to everyone who’s made one or more heart, and/or donated for the pattern. I never dreamed this pattern would be so popular – I love that my little hearts have made so many people happy šŸ™‚

  1. Hello all, I wanted to share that I am crocheting small hearts for Covid patients which will be donated to hospitals caring for anyone infected by this dreadful virus. one heart is given to the patient and one for their family. I will also be crocheting a small strap for facemasks so that the individual can attach the facemask to the strap behind their head instead of behind their ears. Ill be using small buttons or hooks not sure which will be best. If anyone has a good suggestion please do share with me. Stay safe and healthy! Sincerely, Lynne

    I missed the CAL again!! And the stinky part is mine were totally done in time, I was just a slacker about getting pics up. Here’s mine in case you still want to see: www.ravelry.com/projects/Kiadawel/love-hearts

      Kimi, making the hearts into pouch necklaces was a great idea, and they turned out really cute! I’m not surprised the girls loved them šŸ™‚

    I love all of the hearts people did! Definitely will make more of these sometime in the future. You could make them out of cotton and use them for facial scrubbies- would make a nice gift with some homemade soap!

  7. these are all fabulous june!
    you inspire so much love and creativity!
    happy happy valentine’s day!
