Let it snow!
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.
