Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches (in 6 days to be exact!), giving us all the heart eyes for themed projects that feature red, pink, and/or hearts. While it’s typically tradition to gift a gift on a holiday, don’t fret if you can’t finish a hand knit by February 14th. Love is always in season and hearts go with everything! Plus, we believe that you should do something you love on Valentine’s Day, so why not spend it knitting a project that oozes love?!
