Spring cleaning : elbow patches

I seem to have a problem with my left elbow : it is very pointy and must be made of steel because I end up with a hole at its place in most of the clothes I own. (The only clothes that do not have one are the wool sweaters and cardigans handmade by my grandmas) 

I did some spring cleaning and rediscovered some scrap of yarn I had from finished projects so I knitted some elbow patches. 

The heart pattern is from a library book and the simple rectangle pattern can be found here.
