FO: Valentine's Day Garland.




I've been just DYING to show this to all of you!!!! I had an awful time shipping this garland to my swap partner; she finally received it this week, so it's safe to blog about now.

I had so much fun making this! I employed the use of the magical Strick Liesel that I bought on ebay to make a ton of i-cord and then attached tiny felted hearts and handfuls pompoms to the strands. It was super easy, but also a little time-consuming!

Fortunately, it's finally found it's way to Jamie and I hope that she loves it!



Project Particulars


Pattern(s): PomPom Garland and Hearts (ravelry links)
Yarn: Lamb's Pride, Misti Alpaca, Vitage Stash
Needles: Strick Liesel and Size 8 bamboo DPNs
Cost: $15
Time: 6-8 hours
Notes: I adore this! I can't wait to make one for our home! I'm pretty jealous of my swap partner!
