I also whipped up some cookies out of some dough I had frozen at Christmas, and lots of these went to my friend V, who is a young widow with a 9-year-old son.
And, let's not forget the My Funny Valentine sweater I knitted for my little niece. I call it "funny", because this is one of my make-it-up-as-I-go-along specialties. It's a mix of 2 patterns (for gauge and sizing), a heart graph that I copied and tweaked, as well as a completely made-up neckline and edging. I just hope it fits!
As you can see, I prefer making things myself on Valentine's Day. This is probably because they don't sell heart-shaped boxes of chocolates in Spain. Actually, they don't sell any chocolates in Spain. Russell Stover could make millions here!
