Happy Valentine’s Day to my family and friends far and wide!

As my sisters and my friends keep pointing out to me, it has been far too long since I posted to my blog, and what better day to reach out to all of you than February 14th?

So today I ventured outside with camera, heart, and newly-felted mittens in hand, determined to get a snapshot to show you my fresh-off-the-needles project AND my love. Big clumpy snowflakes were wafting down in an idyllic way, and everything looked beautiful.

I love winter.

And so does this little girl:

As usual, she was determined to get as close as possible to the forbidden handknit wool item. Note the evidence at the bottom of this shot:

So…Happy Wintery Heart Day to all of you. I’ll be back soon (promise!), as I have lots to share after such a long absence.
