I borrowed this little leaflet from my mom's stash a couple years back, it was published in 1983 (when she presumably bought it) and although it is falling apart I still have all the pages. It has a bunch of angel and snowflake crochet patterns which I really love; I think they are cute and lacy but easy to crochet. They're meant to be done with skinny white thread, and I've actually made several things out of this leaflet in past years, including the large angel tree topper using the skinny thread. When I get out my Christmas decorations later in the year I'll show them here.
Then I made "snowflake #3" out of the same yarn combo. It was sort of balled up at the end, so I blocked it flat overnight. It looks cute, but is also pretty big. Sadly, I think it looks more like a trivet than a snowflake, so I think in future I'll stick to the skinny white yarn for the snowflake patterns.
How about you guys, anyone start Christmas crafts yet?
