WARM HANDS  WARM HEARTS

This month, we aim to warm little hands with handwarmers, and send

them along with a heart in a square to show our love.

Here are some super examples to inspire you:

The children always need toys.  Please pop one or two in your parcel if you can:

So I had a go at the knitting pattern for the square with a heart in the centre from the pattern book.  It was nice and easy to do - though as I was watching the TV and got caught up in the program I was watching I had to get a pen and paper to keep track of the row I was on...........  However, it has come out at 7 1/2 inches square rather than 8 inches.  I shall have to think of something to add a half inch to the square - and next time I shall try using a 5.5mm needle........

I will add the photo when I have finished the edges.

I found that I had to add some rows before I start the heart and some when I have finished...also some stitches either side, Rebecca. I also added a few rows here and there to give the heart a less pointy look, which I think is a suggested variation on the pattern page.   :))

Yes, I added the two extra rows to get the less sharp points.  I am hoping that moving up a needle size will fix it going forwards - it is a nice square to knit!

Here is a bright red crochet heart, surrounded by creamy white.   Crochet is so much easier for me that this one was finished in 1/10th the time it took for the knitted one.  

Wow Sharon its a beauty !

This is a LOVE-ly square, Sharon. A very effective use of the two colours  :))

It's gorgeous.

This effect is so striking.  Very clever crafting too.

Eight pairs of hand warmers.
