This year I've challenged myself to make and post one crochet motif a day. I really liked the thread version and it inspired me to mix it up a bit, take big yarn and make a scarf. I know snowflakes are not usually blue, but I had Navy in my stash. :-)
It's easy and can be finished in an evening. The large yarn and hook make work go fast.

I make balloon animals for a living. While that may seem like play - for me it's a job. When I play it's with yarn. I love to knit, crochet and eventually want to learn to spin and weave.
