Quick valentine's day knitted gifts

Here at three bags full, we might not have the biggest, or most complicated range of gifts, but one thing that we do cater for, is a quick valentine's day knitted gift.  For the past three, of four years now, we've added a few last minute valentine's day gifts to our range of free knitting and crochet patterns.

Last  minute valentine

It all started a few years back when I suddenly remembered that the next day was valentine's day, and I hadn't got a card for my husband.  I did have needles and red yarn though, so after a hunt for quick valentine's day knitted gifts, I decided to make my own.  The I love ewe last minute valentine was born.

A crochet valentine

The following year, I decided to stick with the theme, but rather than a knitted heart I went for a crochet heart instead.  I love ewe ; another last minute valentine was the end result.  I have to admit, that it's not quite as much fun as the original, but I love it all the same.

It was a while before I decided to come up with another one, and instead recreated my knitted and crochet hearts in different ways first.

A few years down the line though, I wanted to try something a little different.  Back to quick valentine's day knitted gifts this time round, and another free heart knitting pattern, and another cheesy name (sorry).  The end result was the wool you be mine?

I haven't quite decided what I'll do this year, and if we might end up with yet another quick valentine's day knitted gift, or if I'll recreate one of my old patterns.  If you decided to use one of my free heart knitting or crochet patterns, then I'd love to see some pictures.
