I’ve also been playing around with knit “patterns” of another kind recently, and they developed into these gift tags. Small hearts and kisses in stitches & knitting needles. Like my birdy labels, and the labels that come with the Houses Slipover, they have empty care symbols that you can fill in according to the yarn you’ve used for your gift. The tags are now licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.0 UK: England & Wales License, but I would like to ask that you link to this blog post rather than directly to the PDF. Thank you & I hope you enjoy them! :)

& now also KnitLove Vol.2 with:
- ‘Life without you is like a broken needle’ card
- ‘I Love You This Much’ card
- ‘Let’s stitch together, baby’ card
- ‘You always have me in stitches’ card
- ‘You’re my Knit Knight’ card
- ‘You’re my #1′ card
- Envelope liner
- ‘Sealed with a kiss’ stickers
A few tips:
- Fold & glue the tags before cutting them out. Less cutting!
- I find the tags are firm enough when printed on regular printer paper & then folded, however, you could also print them on card. Check your printer manual for help.
- You could fold the tags, but leave them unglued & use the inside for extra space to write your message.
- Punching holes in the right spot takes a bit of practice! ;)
- You could also use these tags to label swatches!
The countryside is as beautiful and muddy as ever. I can hear my latest batch of neighbours being unloaded as I write. Baa-aa. I’ve been hanging out with the forsythia & the magnolia, and I’m terribly behind on everything, so if you’ve been waiting for a reply or a package from me, don’t give up hope!
Also, I realised yesterday that my feed somehow broke, so you may have missed my last post. It should be fixed now, but if you didn’t subscribe through FeedBurner, you may have to resubscribe. Have a lovely long Easter weekend! Eat lots of chocolate & don’t forget to take your camera with you!
