I did end up making something for my Valentine in time.
See it on Ravelry, unrated. hee. hee.
I added a little beading for extra pizazz. I think it turned out relatively well. Maybe a black one is in the future? ;) It's really a quick knit. Be sure to read my notes on doing it dpn-style like the designer of the pattern so you don't reknit it 4 times like me.
Still can't believe I knit one. Ha ha.
