Okay, I’m ready to host another contest. This one is for the best CROCHETED SNOWFLAKE. The snowflake can be an ornament, a wall hanging, a doily, a runner, an applique, or whatever – so long as it can be identified as a snowflake.
Now, this is where it gets hard. You gotta be honest with me. THE SNOWFLAKE MUST BE YOUR ORIGINAL CREATION – A PATTERN YOU CREATED AND NOT ONE YOU SAW SOMEWHERE ELSE. There are a gazillion and one snowflake patterns. But, I’m greedy. I want some more.

So, send me pictures (jpeg format please) and patterns of your snowflakes. The contest opens now and will close on October 31, 2007. It will take me another week or so to review all the entries. You may enter more than once, but each entry must be represented in its own picture and pattern separate from any other entry.
You can use thread, yarn, water hose, macrame rope or whatever. I don’t care what size the finished product is. As usual, I will be the final judge. As usual, I have my biases, so if you are not willing to go with my decision, please don’t enter. BUT, PLEASE DO ENTER. I want to see all your great ideas. And, I want to give something away.
What’s the prize? A selection of items from my stash. This time the prize will include yarn/thread and books/magazines/leaflets. If your entry is especially charming, I might even ASK you what interests you to determine what of my stash to share.
Plus, you’ll have braggin’ rights all through the Winter of 2007-2008. So, get busy with those hooks!
