I love you much more than…

Love

We know for some of you the 14th of Feb is a key date in your calendar, and for others it’s a “Hallmark Holiday” to be ignored. But… if you indulge your hidden romantic for a moment to join our fun “Valentine Verse” competition then you could WIN a skein of delicious “Pembroke Silk” from Townhouse Yarns.

Pembroke

So, impossible as it is to imagine, there are some people in our lives that we love more than our craft, and we’re asking you to complete the phrase “I love you much more than…” along a knitting or crochet theme.

For example:

I love you much more than Pure Cashmere Scarves,
made of hand-dyed yarns from far away shores.

or how about:

I love you much more than my Colour Affection,
perhaps you might buy me the yarn for my next one?

or even:

I love you much more than my whole yarn stash,
And, really, you know how much I love that!

Simply post your entry (or entries) in the comments below, and we will select a lucky winner on Valentines Day!

    I love you much more than this spectacular, not-one-bit-scratchy, time-consuming, elaborate Fairisle jumper I just finished. So here: you can have it.

  2. Susan Harvey

    I love you much more than….

    My old Teddy bear. Hand kit by my Granny it’s almost thread bare.

  3. Susan Harvey

    I began knitting as a child taught by my Granny. She died 31 years ago but I still have the bear she knit me and have continued knitting my whole life

  4. Susan Harvey

    I live you much more than my old teddy bear,
    Hand knit by my Granny it’s almost thread bare

    I love you so so much more than the postie when they knock on my door, with a parcel for me full of a new pattern book and enough balls to create my chosen project!!! Wow, aren’t you lucky to be loved that much!!!

  6. CJ

    To my granddaughters: I love you more than sitiing in this chair knitting. I would love to play with you!

  7. Sinead Gray

    I love you much more than my knitting, I do…
    I know that sometimes I mightn’t give you that clue…
    But between the stiches and purls meant to be worn…
    I’m knitting a love that can never be torn.

  8. asteride

    I love you much more than my 346 skeins and balls of fabulous silk, cashmere, alpaca, mohair, angora, camel, wool that I secretly hide somewhere…..and much more than my wonderful birch hooks and circulars….but, do you deserve it?

  9. Ruth Court

    I love you so much more than ever
    we must be a perfect fit
    because for Valentines Day dinner
    you’l cook and let me knit

  10. Jaclyn Allen

    I love you much more than
    The prize skein in the stash
    Which will be used and gone
    Much faster than my love.

  11. Jaclyn Allen

    I love you much more than
    The space between the stitches, as close
    As the heartbeat from the heart.

  12. Jaclyn Allen

    I love you much more than
    The ill-fitting jumper
    That took you two years.
    I wear it every winter,
    Your way to protect me
    From the world.

  13. Tigerseye

    For Bonnie & Scamp, my mutts!

    I love you more than Knitlab shawls, luxury yarns and lace with beads,
    just as well, as all that I knit or own now grows dog hairs like weeds!

  14. Ger

    I love you much more than having the right number of sts at the end of a row, Tink K2tog could M1 girl glow!

  15. stephanie V

    I love you much more than my stash of yarn for socks.
    Even more than a box of dark creamy chocs…
    You indulge my passions every day of the year. Love rocks!

  16. Kieran Gaya

    Blue-Faced Leicester are sheep
    holding their breath
    till you with baited breath
    requite
    how I love you,
    let me count
    the stitches

  17. Bronagh Connolly

    I love you much more than my knit pro interchangeables, and if you get me some 3.25 symphonies, you’ll complete me….

  18. Bronagh cohnolly

    I love you much more than my knit pro interchangeables, and if you get me a pair of 3.25 symphonies, you’ll complete me….

  19. Anna Kurchenko

    I love you much more than my red ruby yarn
    and I am knitting you a jumper for this Valentine.
    Please tell me my efforts will not be in vain
    and you will give me a ring on this special day.

  20. Áine Hackett

    I love you much more than new balls of wool
    More than circular needles and pattern book
    I’ve put them aside to make room for you
    My amazing nephew Fionn

    To see you my piggy bank must stay full
    So I daren’t even venture to take a look
    At all those skeins of gorgeous texture and hue
    That could diminish my fund

    Instead of fancy projects now I mull
    Over this old yarn, those needles or that hook
    And wonder if there’s something to make or do
    For wearing or play time fun

    It’s worth it you know, for I am no fool
    And I love you much more after each new look
    For cuddles and kisses I’m front of the queue
    Racing to you in London

  21. Calypso

    I love you much more than myself, and that’s the reason why, to knit you a sweater, I got all the yarn on the shelf.

  22. Fiona O'Dea

    I love you much more than my precious yarn stash,
    If I give you a squish, will you give me more cash
    So that I can buy even more of the above,
    Now I don’t call that greed, I call it Yarn Love!

  23. Brid Murphy

    I love you more than crochet and knitting.
    Sew spinning your crafty yarn seams fitting.
    Well singles I’ve done.
    Doubles are more fun.
    Townhouse treble soon……so we’re not quitting.

  24. Brigid

    I love you much more than this passion-knit yarn
    Or diamonds or purls could convey,
    ‘Cos our hearts are entwined, my dear Valentine,
    Like an intricate piece of crochet.

    We’re knit, two together, and darned well we know
    That our pattern is dyed-in-the-wool;
    We may be past stockings and garters –
    But our teamwork is still pretty cool!

  25. Brigid

    I love you much more than this passion-knit yarn
    Or diamonds or purls could convey,
    ‘Cos our hearts are entwined, my dear Valentine,
    Like an intricate piece of crochet.

    We’re knit, two together, and darned well we know
    That our pattern is dyed-in-the-wool;
    Never mind riches, you keep me in stitches –
    And our teamwork is still pretty cool!

  26. Jaclyn Allen

    I love you much more than
    Your fingering-weight sweater
    Which is all errors
    And no errata.
    Rip, rip, rip!

  27. Brigid

    I love you much more than this rhyme can invoke –
    ‘Cos honestly you’re such a wonderful bloke –
    But order for me some Silk yarn from Pembroke
    For a “This is Knit” scarf I could make – yes, bespoke,
    Then I’ll give you your answer – be “one of your folk” –
    And you’ll keep me in stitches forever – you joke!

  28. Sinead

    I love you much more than a skein of Pembroke,
    I much prefer knitting than having to cook,
    But it’s Valentine’s Day so let’s take a break,
    Off to The Pepperpot to savour some cake,
    I’m scheming to add to my “townhouse” stash,
    So it’s into “This Is Knit” to part with some cash.

  29. Sinead

    I love you much more than knitting colours all day,
    Though I hear there’s some fun in just shades of Grey,
    So wrap me head to toe in softest Pembroke,
    And maybe I’ll give you that “come hither” look.
