Ages ago, in the summer, when I still had a job and didn’t know what GA was, I attended a workshop to learnt how to crochet. It was great fun, kinda like knitting but a bit more relaxed and I took to it like water. When I saw they were also running a workshop on crochet stars and snowflakes I signed up straight away. I love stars!
And it would be something to keep me motivated to use the skills I had just learnt.
So tonight I rushed home from London and out to Stitched By You for a couple of hours of crochet.
We started with a simple snowflake. Then made a slightly bigger one (I also have the pattern for the next size up too). Then I moved on to star’s; one with 5 points and one with 6 (because I miss-judged the spacing).
You can’t really see it in the photos but the wool has a sparkle to it, which is perfect for both stars and snowflakes. If they were hung on a christmas tree, for instance, they would twinkle as they moved.
