'Needle Love'

Hello!  If you've read our blog very long you know how I love to knit and crochet.
Lindsey found these two adorable Valentines in her collection featuring knitting.


I don't know if you can see it here, but there is real yarn on the card above.

Since Christmas I have crocheted three afghans.  This is the latest one I am working on and I'm about half way done!


It's now Sweetheart month!  I love all the sweet hearted people who leave us such kind comments.
Thank you so much!  You make our day!
See you tomorrow with more vintage Valentine fun!
Twyla

Hey girls! Thank you! You made my day!
Love your vintage valentines - we were married on Valentines Day 1988and decorated our cake table with some beautiful ones. I set them out each year with our Valentine decor. I'll have to do a blog post with them soon so that I can share.
Have a great week!

Hi Twyla...
These are very cute, and clever to have real yarn on one! I really do love the "old" art and the way the artists thought about things...
Your latest afghan is beautiful... I love the softness of the colors. Your fingers must fly mighty fast to make so many pretty afghans in such a short amount of time! I am very impressed!!
Hope you have a fantastic day!

Well, you're just a crocheting machine- ain'tcha? ☺

Three afghans since Christmas!!?? Wow. Love the combination of colors.

Love the vintage Valentine with the knitting little gal.

Auntie Cake said...

You have completed three afghans since Christmastime? Wow! I seriously don't know how you do it. I love the colors you used, so soft and pretty. And Lindsey's knitting Valentine is right up your alley. I adore the detail of the yarn.

It's cold here today, I could use one of your afghans!

Hi Twyla!
Oh gosh, I just love your collection of vintage cards, so wonderful.
You are a dynamo - three afghans since Christmas!!! I so want to learn to knit and crochet but fear I have put it off too long??? I'm klutzy and my left hand especially - I fear pulling all of my hair out in frustration. Woe is me.
I'm so glad you enjoyed the blogs - I always think of you when I post the list. I smiled to myself when I came across l'Opale d'Arthenice, I just knew you'd love the vintage images. :)
Happy happy Tuesday to you!

Hi Girls,
Don't you just love Valentine Things? I was at the thrift this morning and told the girl there to watch for Valentine boxes for me after the 14th. I almost won a bunch of Valentine stuff on E'bay but at the last minute someone outbid me.Hope all is well in your world.

Your afghan is pretty colors.I have a couple that is made the ripple effect.I don't know about you and your crocheting, but I find my embroidering is relaxing. I loved your Valentine collection and you can see the yarn. There is some really neat ones out there. You all take care

These Valentines, just get cuter every day! I LOVE the little kitty knitting - that is the cutest one yet.

Your afghan is quite beautiful. Very nice choice of colors.

Love the Valentines. They bring back memories of taking Valentines to school and we all exchanged them.

Very pretty afghan!

You two crack me up. I dont know how you stay on top of your blog the way you do with so many cute things. You must have a magic wand!

Julie Ranae said...

Great tie-in with the yarn and the afghan....by the way, LOVE the colors of that yarn!

Just a heads up....getting closer to getting something up and running with the vintage challenge...YAY!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Very pretty vintage valentines. Love the little bit of yarn on that first one. Is this another afghan in a half double crochet? Love your color combinations. I've started one but find the colors very boring. I need to add something fun to the mix. Have a great day! Blessings, Tammy
