The tradition continues with my annual Punny Valentine’s. Each year, I create these silly sentiments using crochet and puns. I try to be as creative and amusing as possible. I do, however, have to match a pun to something I can create using my crochet magic. It is NOT easy, let me tell you, this blog showcases my collection from 2020. You can check out my 2018 Punny Valentine’s Here! See my 2017’s Punny Valentine’s here and my 2016’s Punny Valentine’s here! Do you have a fun pun to share? Let me know in the comments section. Share a possible pun that might show up in my 2021 Punny Valentine Series! ~Nadia

I am making the best out of these frigid temps this week as I finish yet another weather inspired pattern. With temperature well below zero and brutal wind chills, it is no wonder that my mind is always thinking of ways to stay as snug and cozy as I possibly can! Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens are my latest creation to come off my hook!
These cozy mitts are fantastic and definitely doing their job keeping my digits nice and toasty! Frigid air, don’t care, I got me a pair! Ok, that was silly, but these mittens are not! Using Red Heart Evermore Chunky Yarn, this pair works up fast and easy! I have noted how to make these a bit bigger if you want more room! Handmade mittens are inspired by days gone by when most of the winter worn items were homespun yet these will always stand the test of time. My Wonderfully Warm Mittens are functional and very stylish today and for generations to come! Make yourself a pair! These also make a great gift!
