A couple of years ago, my sister gave me the gift of crochet for christmas.  The gift being a range of threads, hooks and a book on how they went together!

I got going on it and made a load of things, most of which I have shared with you.  But the one thing I hadn't done until a few weeks before christmas was tackle the snowflake patterns she had also given me.  Once I got started, I was off!  I was a crochet snowflake machine, I couldn't stop!  but then I had to find out how to make them keep their shape, this was resolved with a quick wander round the internet, a saucepan containg water and cornflour!  it was a lovely gooey warm mess, and blocking was lots of fun!  I then turned to ravelry to further my addiction to crocheted snowflakes and found a vast library of new patterns to play with!  the results are below:



Sadly the addiction has not abated, I have around more made up waiting for blocking and I am still making more, but what do you expect?  I found sparkly yarn to make them with!!!!!

Those are really special, quite beautiful.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

So pretty  Smiley I love to crochet snowflakes too.

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

Sparkly yarn just begs to be used, doesn't it?  These are pretty, and I'm sure the shiny flakes are, too.  You'll show them to us when they're blocked, right?

There's one in every family, and I'm an only child.
