Oh my, time is flying by! Already the 1st of December, can you believe it?
Here a bit more on Minet (2014 version). I tried it without beads. I kept the same length of picots where the three beads were and in this version I have pinned them so they have a sharper angle but you could leave them soft and rounded too. I also just made a picot on the inner round instead of the JKs. Here it is in pale blue and ivory.
And here's a "Candy Cane" version.
This time I added a bead where the JKs were on the first round.
These are silver lined beads and I like the sparkle
they add to the snowflake.
Looks pretty glinting on the tree…
You can't see the sparkle on the scan
but it does look pretty IRL.
And now I'm not sure which I like best anymore! Funnily enough, I look back at the first, gold version and I like it too!
I played my first Christmas carols on the piano this morning. For me it's always the 1st of December when I truly start thinking of Christmas and getting into the spirit and I love getting the books out and playing the very first carol on the 1st day of December.
