Knit and Crochet Inspiration for Valentine’s Day

I don’t usually worry too much about Valentine’s Day.  When I was younger I was chronically single (and liked it that way), and we’ve never really made a big deal about it in the 10 years we’ve been together.  I mean, it’s lovely to celebrate, but it’s not important to me if it’s on the 14th of Feb or the 14th of September, if you know what I mean?  My husband is a total romantic anyway, so he doesn’t need a special day to remind him.

But because I love to celebrate love, I’ve found some gorgeous Valentine’s Day inspired projects and ideas for you – focusing on spoiling yourself!

My Instagram friend Vanessa has made a series of gorgeous project bag and hand dyed yarn kits.  I’m absolutely in love with this one – the hearts even look crocheted.  and the yarn, wow.  It’s gorgeous red with sparkle, and I love me some sparkle! Check out the full range here.

While not knit or crochet, I had to include this tutorial by Tonya at A Love of Family and Home.  Tonya shows us how to make those gorgeous felted roses, I think I’ll have to do it too…

Ok Aussies.  I realise that it’s a massive heatwave there right now, so even though these aren’t Valentine related, they’re hot weather related!  And in all honestly, when I lived in Alice Springs I had thongs (flip flops) for all occasions.  These can totally be “Date Night Thongs,” right?  These are my own design.

Have a great Valentine’s Day, whether you’re married, single, in love or out of it.  Just use it as an excuse to eat great chocolate!
