Hearts

So after a long day at work and getting a little frustrated at the latest pattern I am trying to make I got a little inspired by a text my boyfriend sent me. It was just a simple 'I <3 you' message but I got to thinking, I could totally crochet a heart. I've seen tons of patterns for them and they are all very similar so this is the one I used. I also apologize if the photos take a while to load, I am a photographer so I took the opportunity to take a cute picture of my puppy and test out a new camera I am borrowing. (Olympus Pen E-PM1)
