Snowflakes - finding more thread
The top is called SP-511 - Unfortunately I don't have the designer's name. A friend of mine sent me a copy of the pattern.
The bottom is called Sophronia from Snowcatcher. Her patterns are just lovely. She puts up a new design each Monday. This patten had lots of work on the third round.
I'm beginning to understand how the snowflake is made. Couple yards of thread, a crochet hook, a few rounds of stitches and it happens before your eyes. Remember snowflakes have six points!
The notebook I set up as I started this challenge - I'm respecting it and including all the patterns, credits, etc that I have worked. Of course, we have enjoyed the pictures. This has been on of my best organized efforts!
My snowflake challenge falls over into other aspects of my life. I finished up two balls of DMC #10 in getting these snowflakes so far. Great as that's two balls out of the open stash box - though no more white. I began scouring my stash and could only find balls of Ecru ? Where is my stash of white?
So there I am pulling apart items in the studio. I found two unfinished thread crochet projects stuck away from a very long time ago. One was almost done - though I'm not excited about it any longer. I may reclaim the thread from that project - but not right now. A second one was really not started. It was a multiple motif placemat - nice pattern but..... The second project doesn't exist any longer!! So now a hook can be placed back into the holder and I found an almost full ball of #10 DMC Cebelia!!
Yeah - studio received a few moments of my much needed attention. I've an almost full ball of thread to continue making my snowflakes. For the unexperienced, I've 284 yards of thread to continue on.
