Autumn Snowflake

Yes, I know, why are we thinking about snowflakes in the middle of August?
Well, I wanted to share my other entry into the CGOA Design Competition.
Here it is:
"Autumn Snowflake"
It reminded me of an intricate snowflake and the colors reminded me of fall. In fact, the pretty coral color was also my wedding color.  I used the pretty Perle Cotton crochet thread and a small steel hook. (All of which I had found a long time ago on clearance!)  I had a basic idea of what I wanted the doily to look like but as I created it, I had to improvise the structure and amount of rounds.  I am pleased with how it turned out.

In this issue I designed the "Dino Mitts" for kids.  I decided to make them in a puppet-style mitten so they would not only keep hands warm but also be able to "come to life" while playing in the cold.  They are made out of Red Heart Soft yarn - it has a wonderful sheen and is very soft.  I love the colors that it comes in.
