Pretty Little Snowflakes


Is it starting to look a little christmasy around your place?  The Christmas season is in full swing at my house. The kids are getting so excited as the big day gets closer and closer. I've been working on snowflakes still off and on during the past weeks. Maybe by the time Christmas day arrives, the tree will finally be full of snowflakes...haha!

I've been wanting to share these pretty little snowflakes with you for awhile now. Finally I had a free moment this morning while Garrett slept in to edit a few photos and type a note or two. I so wish I could claim this pattern but I can not. I found it on the Better Homes and Gardens website and you wish to make a few for yourselves you can check them out over HERE
They are very very easy to make. For mine I used that thin yarn again...size 10....using double strands and away I went.  I did have to hit them each with the iron a bit and some starch to stiffen them up overall--so sweet and lovely don't you think!

    1. Awww, thank you Joy! I have to say no to the making of the dolls. My mother gave those to me about three years back for Christmas and I absolutely love them.

  7. First off I love your new header! I wondered if you made the dolls too, but saw your comment above. They are adorable, and just the sort of thing I would like to try making sometime. Your snowflakes are magical! I can just imagine your tree covered in these pretty shapes. I keep wanting to look up a snowflake pattern in knitting, but just haven't found the time to do so. Perhaps over the holidays I'll search something up. Merry Christmas Shari! Wendy xox
