And the hearts she has designed are lovely. It may not be a knitting revoloution but it certainly has great ideas for knitting a heart as one desires.
She has used paper, wool and wire and even included pages so you can design your own heart. You can knit pillows, penguins, jewelry and hearts for the christmas tree. There are endless possibilities.
The photos are really good and the book is a joy just to read and get inspired from.
I had to try out one of the patterns just to see how it worked. It was a bit fiddling with only five stitches to begin with.
But after a couple of rounds it is ok. I used a fingering yarn and one of the charts for a kind of norwegian look. I will try more of the patterns - the hearts has a nice shape and is not as round as you often see knitted hearts.
A warm heart makes the world a better place. Even if it is knitted. Have a lovely heart warming weekend.
