Knitted Hearts Kit

There is a new knitting kit in the shop this week, to make 2 knitted hearts – one for you and one for your Valentine!

The hearts are made in Erika Knight’s lovely British Blue Bluefaced Leicester yarn, which is wonderfully soft and has a slight sheen to it.  The shade is called Pretty and it is a dusky pink colour.  The kit also contains 2 sweet little mother-of-pearl buttons, which pick up the sheen of the yarn nicely, stuffing and pink ribbon, with which to hang the hearts.  If that wasn’t enough, the kit ALSO contains a pair of bamboo knitting needles, decorated with red jewels, to fit in with the romantic theme.

The kit was inspired by some lines from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’:

“My heart unto yours is knit,

So that but one heart we can make of it.”

It’s so great that knitting features in Shakespeare!

About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
