I wonder…

I wonder what I could make with this? Lol 🙂

This Sirdar snuggly, chunky Snowflake yarn really caught my eye. It has a fluffy cottonwool like texture and is incredibly soft. I’m thinking I’ll lose some stitch definition using this for snowflakes but I’m intrigued as to how it will look. 🙂

Merging, adapting and tweaking

As many will know, I’ve got snowflakes on the brain. Well last night I adapted an existing snowflake pattern from a book (Mini Christmas Crochet by Val Pierce).

I used elements from other snowflakes I’ve seen on the internet. Adding these features to the final round.

There are still things I’d like to change but I’m happy with the result of my tinkering.

Shhhh! Brain be quiet!

We’ve come down to London for the weekend. 🙂

Whilst I’m here and not exploring I’m hoping to write a pattern for a snowflake. My first attempt isn’t going to work but that’s ok.

Funny how the mind works tho because at 4.44am, when stood outside the hotel shivering because the fire alarms had gone off, a flash of inspiration came.

I’ve now got a great idea for the last round of my snowflake (which is the bit I was struggling with). This did keep my brain chattering when I should have been getting sleep but that’s alright 🙂

Star snowflake

Just a short post to share another snowflake. This hasn’t been starched or blocked yet.

I’m quite enjoying making these… I may see if I can write some patterns for my own. 🙂
