Of course, some times you have to dream big.
After having mastered the first steps of knitting and “knowing” how to crochet (or so I thought)…I figured I can easily learn how to crochet snowflake ornaments and send them as Christmas presents. So Hans and I went to the public library and I checked out “Crocheting: For Dummies” and “Christmas Crochet”. This book contains instructions for a snowflake pillow. I used the patterns for several snowflakes and turned them into ornaments.
The snowflake crocheting patterns were rather overwhelming at first. It was like looking at images of hieroglyphs. And once I started reading the Crocheting for Dummies book, I realized how little I truly knew about crocheting. WAIT?! There is more than just the two stitches I used to make the little woolen squares?! It took a bit of patience and practice but eventually, I succeeded in making snowflake ornaments.
