More Knitting

Cute blue hat. Tried a new pattern, turned out too small for me, so probably selling this one. Made from worsted weight Redheart yarn.

Valentine Sweets

These are the cute little candy heart boxes I made for my family for Valentine's Day. I bought the mold at the thrift shop back before Christmas. Someone told me they had a bunch of candy molds at the thrift shop so I made a special trip to town to check them out. Not much for Christmas molds which is what I'd been hoping for, but I picked up quite a few Valentine things, this heart box mold being one of them.
I had three of the kids here for supper the day before Valentine's and I filled the boxes with no-bake cheesecake filling. They were a big hit, except for the complaints that they didn't hold enough filling. The teenage daughter even took the extra heart to have for breakfast at school the next morning.
