This week I have finally started to make gifts and decorations for Christmas. Because some people I am making gifts for just might take a look over here, I can only give a little sneakpeek of this:
I really like the colours of this yarn. It is working out perfectly and I really hope that the person it is for will like it too.
For decorations I found a very nice pattern for snowflakes. It is quite easy and you can make several on just one evening.
In my stash I had a ball of silver yarn. I have had it for years and never knew what to do with it, but for these little snowflakes it is perfect. So far I have made five of them (and still quite a lot of yarn left). After crocheting them, I have stiffened them to keep their shape. It was the first time ever I used fabric stiffener, but it was quite easy and the result is great. You can find the pattern here .
