Valentine's Day sweaters

Well, I fell short of my goal to make two Valentine's Day sweaters, for Ainsley and Eliza, in time for Actual Valentine's Day. But did finish the first one, and am going to work long tonight on the second. I particularly liked the heart motif I found in volume three of Barbara Walker's invaluable books. The sweater, in size 6 for growing three-year-olds, is considerably bigger==longer and wider--than I'd hoped or expected, so the second one I'm now working on I'll do in the round (an irrelevant modification for size purposes), and shorten and narrow a tad, and probably do completely different yokes while keeping Walker's hearts: my grand daughters are in the height of their appreciation for hearts and pinks and purples (and fairies and princesses and and ).
