Knit Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts Quickly

Here are three adorable projects

Knitted Hearts
Knit Posy
Multicolor knitted hearts

Knit three last minute Valentine’s Day gifts, in two hours or less! For each of these projects I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn, available at Island Variety, and size five needles. Everything in these projects can be purchased on Nantucket, to make your crafting that much easier.

Got two hours? Knit these.  What better way to tell someone you love them than with hugs and kisses, knit style? This whole set takes about two hours from start to finish. This pattern is in the book, Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, which is available at BookWorks. The pattern calls for smaller yarn and needles, but I wanted bigger, so I used the yarn and needles I mentioned above, Give these in a Valentine card, or package them in a tin, for a no calorie holiday treat.

Got an hour and a half? Knit this: This is Posey, a super cute and easy pin cushion. If you’re looking for something a little different to give your Valentine, this is it. Posey is available on the website Kris Knits, at

Got a half an hour? Knit this: Or knit more than one! Each one takes about twenty to thirty minutes. They can be embroidered with your Valentine’s name, or just sent as is, either way they’re so beyond cute! And addicting – it’s as close to instant knitting gratification there is. You can even put some catnip in them, for your favorite furry friend! These are very similar to the ones I made:
