Snowflake Garland!

Wow, two finished projects to show you in the same weekend. Go me! I've shown you a sneak of the snowflake's I've been working on, but now I've finished it. I apologise in advance for the super duper crappy photos I've taken of it. I assure you it looks much better in person, lol!

This is what the snowflakes looked like before blocking them. I pinned them to the carpet and spray them with laundry starch to make them stiffer and give them a better shape.

The garland! I really couldn't decide where to put it. I was gonna have it in my bedroom but the colour didn't really "go" so decided to put it up in my little living room in the bay window. (Horrible photo I know!)

Close up of one of the snowflakes. SO glad I decided to use this yarn, it's so pretty!

If you want to make your own snowflakes, you can check out the pattern on Lucy's blog (yes I DO love her patterns!): Attic24

Your snowflakes are excellent! May I ask which yarn you used? I think it is a perfect choice for snowflakes.

Do you know it was a nice change to see snowflakes another colour apart from white. This gives them an icy feeling!
Well done they are gorgeous
Seasonal greetings to you and your family.
