but there are other ways for me to show you that I love you. Admittedly, I almost never choose the medium of naked interpretive dance. Predominantly and very predictably given the nature of this blog, I choose the medium of cloth and yarn.
Thanks nice neighbour T for posting this on Facebook. Can you hear the odd ‘Back away from my hamster ball!’ from down there?

What about this?
The Heart Rug pattern is from the Crochet Bible by Sue Whiting which I borrowed from my local library. It’s lovingly fashioned from stash yarn and features a few minor pattern modifications. I:

- added a few rows to the tops of the heart.
- edged with three rounds of double crochet instead of the suggested one.
Now, my young man. Would you like some pyjamas?
