Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you're having a lovely day so far (or, if you're reading this after the fact, that it was a good one.)

I got a little crafty for mine.

I put together some treats in little bags, and tied them up with ribbon.  SO much fun having seasonal ribbon for this job.  Or in fact any ribbon I didn't have to go hunting all over the house for.  Now I have to find a place to store the leftovers, but it's a small price to pay.

It occurred to me last week that there is something else I have been doing every Valentine's Day that has become, for me, a tradition I want to keep up.  And that is:

posting a free pattern here at Hugs - my Valentine to you!

Unfortunately part of this tradition is remembering late that I want to do it, and then scurrying around to make it happen.  This year, I remembered too late even for that.  So instead of a pattern today, you're getting this:

Pictures of the sample for the pattern I'll be posting as a late Valentine sometime next week.  It's a cowl.

I designed it to be knit-able without a marker, even though it's seamless.

The idea is for it to be knit on autopilot... on a plane (geddit?)... but of course you can just knit it anywhere. 

Once I get the pattern written up. (oh, that.)

Meanwhile: thank you for reading Hugs as often as you do, and happy Valentine's Day!
