We love LOVE, and Yarn ;)

Yes roses are red, and chocolates are nice but the true mark of a present from the heart is one that’s handmade, with yarn that is! To help us along I’ve scoured the pages of Pinterest and Ravelry to cultivate 6 projects (and their links!) that’s sure to win over your loved one and show them how much you care! Like any true Aalta Addict I paired our suggested yarn with each project, just click on the buttons above the pictures to see what you need!

  1. This first one’s for our seasoned pro’s, these Heart Wristwarmers by Craftic make my hands warm just looking at them! And the cute little hearts make them the perfect gift for V-Day! For a super plush cosy feel, try it with Aalta Cloud in White and Pink!

2) Incase you’re fingers are tired of knitting, try a different way to use your Aalta Yarn. This DIY can be created with just a piece of wood, yarn, and some nails(hopefully hubby won’t notice you stole a few)! See how to do it on Green Wedding Shoes! Try Aalta Core in Red or Wine for a beautiful Silky effect….

5) Here’s a Cardigan that you’ll want to wear all year long. It comes from Sasha Kagan on Raverly and would knit great in Aalta Truth. To accomplish this look I would use Truth in Red Matador/Natural Undyed.
