I've become rather jaded when it comes to weather predictions. We never seem to get as much snow as the weatherman says we will. Still, we did get a light cover of snow last night. When daylight arrives, I may discover that there's more than I think. My fingers are crossed! I LOVE snow! It's ice that I despise!
I finished this pretty little snowflake last night. It's Snowflake 2 from Festive Snowflakes & Ornaments for Needle and Shuttle Tatters, edited by Barbara Foster. This was a fun pattern to tat, but I think I'll make some changes with the next one. First, I'll use a slightly smaller long picot for the center ring. I like the length of the fringe-like picots, but I switched to a smaller picot for the tips. Next time, I think I'll make all those picots the same size. As I was tying off the last chain, I found a strange loop of thread in the first ring. I'm not sure how it got there, but it's something I'll watch for next time!
The finished size is 3 3/4" in size 40 Lizbeth, color #116.
