Snowflakes! Okay, okay. I know it’s too early for some of you, but winter is my absolute FAVORITE time of year! I won’t go into a diatribe on all of the reasons why. I’ll just tell you a bit about today’s creation. My first attempt at making a snowflake was semi-successful. I liked this pattern I found with the silver-grey inside of the white. I bought Caron Simply soft white and grey. Both yarns have stripes and flecks of sparkle in them, which is why I took these close-ups, because the camera just can’t seem to capture the whimsical sparkle of these fabulous yarns. Reviewing my work, I realized I should have chained 5 stitches, instead of 3, for my picot stitches. This would have made the edges of the snowflake pointier, and more flake-like, (less flower-like.) Also, I have not given up on the afghan. Don’t worry: I just took a breather to make a sparkly little piece and imagine a bit of winter chill.
Check out those sparkles! It’s just like glistening snow!
