I don't know about anyone else but I am missing my family so much. I decided that I am going to add a heart to my square 1's for every member of my family.

Row 1 - knit
Row 2 - kfb (knit into the front and back of the first stitch) knit the rest of the row
Row 3 - knit
Row 4 - knit until the last stitch,kfb

Row 6- kfb, knit the rest of the row - leave these stitches on your needle* and make 1 more piece from *-*
Next row - knit across the stitches of both pieces to join them together.
