Heart bunting... for my love


As you may already know, my dearest husband has been struggling to come to terms with my recent crochet creations... the crochet coasters and granny bunting have been met with shocked looks and deep sighs, and I have even started to doubt my own sanity and sense of style.

After creating the last lot of granny bunting, I declared that I would be off to make him a string to hang in his car... and I kept my word, but decided to make him a chain of hearts instead (what, with Valentines day not too long ago and our wedding anniversary in April, I though it was the perfect symbol of true love).



As you can see in the photo below, he was lost for words... but I just knew he was overcome with love and deeply moved by my sacrifice of time and effort put into this display of love (and probably struggling with a hint of envy for my fine crochet skills as well).


I love you too babe... and let me know anytime if you ever want a matching string for the back window as well.

  2. OH that is so AWESOME!!! I am just about falling off the chair laughing!!
    Of course he is totally impressed.. i think his hand was over his face because he was thinking, how will I ever match this outpouring of love by my wife, she has far superior crochet skills, what can I do that will come close to this?

  4. Congratulations on the anniversary celebration&creativity, Kristy! Those yarn hearts are so sweet. Handmade gifts are extra sweet because of all the time you put into making it, and how that time is spent thinking of the lucky person receiving it :) You two are rare wonders!

  30. He is so overly overcome by emotion....I can tell. Your thoughtfulness, creativity, and acts of love have left him shaking his head over how he ever made you his wife! FYI: he needs one for the back and something for the antenna as well! Could you crochet a license plate cozy????

  51. Speechless is the work - although I can't make out if he is about to cry or laugh. Well done. So does he indeed want a matching one for the back window?

  57. Hahaha wonderful, my boyfriend can have that same look on his face when I offer new ideas like, hon, shall I make a matching granny square blanket for our orange car?

    I guess I just have to do it and pimp the car in the middle of the night while he's sleeping ;) love your blog & humor by the way!

    Love from the Netherlands!
