Have a Heart

10 Jan

As you may or may not be aware, I’ve developed a sort of obsession with crocheting this winter. I’ve been experimenting with all different types of crocheted shapes and this one has to be my favorite – hearts! I’ve been pretty excited to share these with you for awhile. These hearts are cute as small gifts (I recently gave one to my friend for her birthday!), hung as ornaments, or as a small decorative piece on a desk.
