Boho heart mania

It seems that I am once again in the grips of another bout with boho heart fever.

As of last night, I had completed an 63 additional boho heart centers and gotten the ends woven in and trimmed for all of them.

This morning, before I got started on the second round of these newly minted 140 crochet boho hearts to-be, I laid them all out and got this photo:

Before I got a start on the second rounds, I gathered together some of the second round colors (I often like to use a variegated yarn for the second round), and among them were three variegated yarns I had not used before:

Three new-to-me variegated yarn colorways

They are (from top to bottom): Red Heart Super Saver butterfly, Red Heart Super Saver pink panther, and Craft Smart Value bright orchid.

While I anticipated problems finding things that would work with the delightfully bold pink panther colorway, I was a bit flummoxed to find that the variations in the butterfly colorway made it a bit problematic to get it to play nicely with other colors, and while I find it well worth the effort, it was not as easy to coordinate as I had thought it would be.

But after a lovely afternoon on my back deck (a little prelude to spring) with the heart centers, a sizable stash of yarn, and a 4.5 mm hook, I managed to get the second round completed on 25 of the 140 boho hearts-to-be:

There is still a lot of work to be done, but perhaps this boho heart fever will help me power through to the end.

  1. I am in awe how you plow into 140 hearts, no holds barred and 840 ends to weave in! More power to you! And how much fun to see all your little hearts lined up in the first pic!!

    P.S.: This had me worried on Friday already, so I went searching for an entry on weaving in ends, thinking you must have some secret Zen koan or other trick up your sleeve. And it turned out to be the special needle. 🙂

  2. I’ve been keeping up with your progress. So pretty. But I can’t find what your going to do with them. I also live in NC on the coast.
