One of the fun things about this project is finding out about new blogs and web sites that I haven’t seen before. I found out about today’s snowflake ornament from someone on Twitter. She pointed me to the blog, Attic24–written by a wonderful British crocheter with a love for granny squares. She has a step-by-step tutorial for this snowflake which she originally discovered on the Red Heart web site.

Here are Lucy’s snowflakes from Attic24:

The Red Heart Snowflakes began as a garland–I was teaching at The Net Loft today, and taught a young girl to make the garland version out of Brown Sheep Bulky–she whipped out a pile of them in a jiffy, and they join as you go–fun!

I made two today in different sizes with the Jaimeson, but I’ll need to photograph it tomorrow, it was already too dark here at 3:3o when I left work!
