warm hearts

If you're a knitter in need of a quick and cute Valentine's Day craft, you have to check out Mary-Heather Cogar's knit heart brooch over on Design*Sponge.  You can knit up one of these in the time it takes you to watch an episode of The Mindy Project (Side note: I'm late to the party on this having ditched TV last summer but Mindy Kaling is basically my imaginary best friend. "Best friend isn't a person. It's a tier.") 

For my brooch I actually sized down to fingering weight and 2.5mm needles.  The first one I knit with the recommended worsted and 3.75mm seemed to large for wearing but made an adorable decoration.  How cute would a garland of these be?

And here's a little adorableness from The Mindy Project.
