Owl Always Be Your Friend

Before February is over, I wanted to share one last Valentine’s Day idea with you. While I realize that you will not need the idea any time soon, maybe you could pin it unto Pinterest so you can find it next year when you do need it. Or maybe you will find it while searching the internet.

My daughter’s AHG troop exchanged Valentine’s within her unit. We loved this, for as a homeschooler we have not regularly exchanged Valentine’s among friends and classmates. Instead of the regular store-bought cheesy cards, we opted to make some. In my search I have found several ideas that involved wrapping a box of confectionary hearts but none of them seemed right for us. So I was determined to make one that she liked.

Sugar on a stick

Last year for the AHG Father/Daughter Dance I made chocolate covered marshmallows. This year our new troop in Florida also had a Father/Daughter Dance. Each family was asked to bring something to share. I asked my  husband what he wanted and HE picked chocolate covered marshmallows. However, I hate to do the same thing twice…

Besides the different colored sprinkles, I also designed a stick topper inspired by the valentine conversation hearts. Continue reading “Sugar on a stick”

February Dishcloth

As I shared in January, my goal for Christmas 2014 is to make several sets of dishcloths to give as gifts. Each set will have 12 dishcloths, one for each month. Instead of waiting till the end of the year to work on the project, I plan to knit a few each month so that by December, they will be complete. Well, enough rambling, here is the February installment of the set.

Heart dishcloth - 1

This pattern was designed by Emily Jagos and can be found here for free.

As always I used my size 6 needles so my finished project was a little smaller (8 inches x 8 inches). I choose “Bright Pink” by Peaches and Creme. I like the edging on this dishcloth. So often, dishcloths with images to not have much texture and this one solves that problem by adding a little extra texture around the edge.

Happy knitting!
