Hi! I'm not sure I could interest you with some snowflakes now, but I woke up the other day and I suddenly had the urge to make some. I plan to make a collection just by looking for free patterns or those from my old books and magazines.
For starters here are two I made from patterns I found (on CPC, of course):

Above photo shows snowflake #3 from Aly Hymel, and the one on the right is a Snowflake pattern from Yule Family Christmas site
Both were made from Cannon with metallic thread, size 8, using size 6 )1.4mm) steel hook.
More details on my blog entry. Thanks for looking!:hook

:2snowman OOOOOOOOO I love snowflakes! I have a bunch of plastic ones that I put on my tree every year. I really should crochet a ton of them and replace those old plastic ones. I guess I will have to put that on my to do list! :yes

They are very pretty. I have seen snow a few times in my travels and have decided I am not a snow person... unless it is in a cone.:lol :lol .

Mimi what will you do with them?

Very pretty. I use to make a ton of those and gave them all away. I think I'll get back to it and keep most for myself. :D

What are you using to stiffen them with?

ROAKing them is a good idea. Christmas ornaments fit nicely in envelopes. Thanks for the tip. :)
