What are you most proud of? Although snowflakes themselves are colorless, do not be limited to using only white yarn. For the sample models, I chose silk yarns with beads and sequins to give hints of light dancing off snowflakes. Also, the colors I chose simulate some of the hues of earth and sky that reflect through snowflakes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I hope you have as much fun knitting these designs as I have had in creating them. Let your imagination run wild in making your own "each one different" snowflakes.

Finally, knitted snow flurries. I wish I had these for Christmas. They would make beautiful ornaments for the tree, a little gift attached to presents and most wonderful of all, a beautiful bed covering or table cloth.
