"Dansk Hjerte"


"Dansk Hjerte":  I think this translates to Danish Heart.  This is a cute little knitting pattern in the 2012 edition of "Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts" magazine.  The pattern designer indicates she made the hearts as a child out of red and white paper.  The top of the heart is open so one can insert a small gift or some candy.  I made my heart out of left over bits of Plymouth Encore Worsted (a wool & acrylic blend).  I like little projects like this but the finishing and sewing at the end always drives me nuts.  I muck up nice knitting with sub par sewing.  It looks pretty good in the photo; just don't look closely.
