Snowstorm in July

I recently rediscovered a Leisure Arts Christmas crochet booklet I bought years ago, and I'm utterly enchanted by it. Snowflakes, angels, tree ornaments, runners, stars - you name it, it's in there. All done is crisp white crochet cotton.


I have yet to experiment with authentic, uber-fine crochet cotton - the yarn I used for this motif is Patons Grace, which is very delicate, but not as fine as crochet cotton - but so far I'm pleased with the results.

There's no "wrong" in hooking when you make your own rules.

This would make a pretty present topper, but I can also see a string of these tumbling across a wintry window pane...
