Congratulations Melissa, nor_lou, Stacey and Dana Lynne! Now for some knitting details on the hearts: I bought the purple and red flag yarns from the Target One Spot last year. They looked like so much fun, but I hadn't found a good use for them until now. The purple yarn is King Tut Egyptian cotton and the red yarn is Lion Chenille (except for the middle heart which was acrylic). Adam's heart is the plain red one on top because he didn't want any "frilly stuff". They were knit using the Mochimochi pattern, with the exception of using size 7 needles and knitting up to 12 stitches instead of 14. For the first lobe, I used k2tog, k4, turn, p2tog, p1, p2tog, cast off. I cut a 24" tail for seaming later. The second lobe is the opposite at k4, k2tog, turn, p2tog, p1, p2tog, cast off. They were stuffed with yarn scraps and sewn together using the same strand of yarn, including the hanging loop. The loop is simple enough: knot on top, loop, thread through the knot straight out the bottom and knot again (this loop needs to withstand my kids). They were really fun to make!
