"I HEART U" Mini-sweaters

I Heart Valentine's Day.

It's a nice, warm spark mid-way through New York's cold, gray month of February.  

In celebration of the day, I knitted these mini-sweaters for my mom.  She decorates her and my dad's home for pretty much every holiday, so I knew she would love them.  And I will always remember just how excited I was to give her this gift!

I followed the Sweater and Stocking Minis pattern in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.  (The sweaters are truly miniature; each fits in my palm.)   You can see them here on Ravelry.  If you can't get your hands on a copy of the book -  but I hope you can - have a look at this collection of *free* mini-sweater patterns by Berroco.  You will find them here on Berroco's website.

Enjoy, and Happy Valentine's Day!
