I took a short break from my woolly mammoth (thanks Katie) of a project to knit a simple heart. It's for the man I love and was a really easy pattern to follow, found on the Julie and the Knits site. She suggests you use them as coasters, which gives you an idea of how big it is but I have a different use for it in mind.
The woolly mammoth is coming on, but it's a slow business. I've never knitted anything so big! It's getting quite unwieldily now. I hope it is worth the effort.
