Have a Heart

This past weekend, the blogosphere was brimming with Valentine's Day posts. My Google Reader was well decorated in pink and red hearts, along with Valentine's Day tutorials and print outs. Somehow I missed the boat.

Valentine's Day is usually pretty low-key for us. This year we spent the weekend celebrating our good friend's Valentine's Day birthday. Ava turned 3 on Sunday, and although I was instructed to not bring a present, I figured I could bring a card with a knit heart.

Prototypes were drawn up, and my 'little heart' turned out a little bigger than I expected. I used fingering weight yarn left over from my Girly Mitts, but it was still a bit to large to adorn a card. Instead, it became a card (In the form of the pillow, that is):

We signed the back and wished Ava the happiest 3rd Birthday- what a wonderful Valentine's Day it was!

What about you...whose company did you enjoy on V-Day?
