I love home, everything about it. I always have. Maybe it’s the Cancerian in me, but I love to be home, and I have to nest wherever I am. In hotels, I unpack into every drawer, even if I’m just staying a night. Even in tents, I lay out piles of clothing in orderly rows.

Home is truly where my heart is, and maybe it’s why I loved writing How to Knit a Heart Back Home so much. I adored writing about two people learning what the words mean to them.

So forgive me if it’s a little sappy, but I designed some mitts to show off those two beautiful words that Lucy and Owen study in the book. Heart. Home. ( =Love. ) They’re an easy knit, finished off with duplicate stitch that is just as easy to do.
