. . . luv 'n stitches for our tired old world

deck the yard with hearts of yarn-y ♥ Fa-la-la-la-laaa…


A couple of weeks ago, our entire landscape was one month into hibernation and knee-deep in snow—true story 🙂 Oh, but now look… L@@K at the grass and all that snow that is no longer there! This weekend is winter solstice (our shortest day = 7 hours and 25 minutes, down from 17 hours at summer solstice) and it’s actually beginning to look a lot like springtime… everywhere we go! 😉

Could this be global warming?

Skies have been fairly overcast and what’s left of the snow is quite icy. But all the mild weather has been great for hearty backyard photo shoots! So that’s what I did… looked for blue skies and did some hearty backyard yarn bombing 🙂

My yarn bombing props include:
— the ethereal-looking heart garland from this post
— the felted-loop-linky heart garland (diy to come)
— heart-felted Bramble♥tini loop ornaments from this post
— lacy white heart-shaped dishcloth (knitting pattern to be published in 2015)
— strands of garland knit from Bernat Boa and SRK Baby Monkey yarns
— unemployed snow shovel/broom, plus in-demand Christmas lights
— and last, but not least… my “black Friday” sack of Knit Picks yarn!!!

Thank you for visiting my Knitting With Heart blog today!
