Snowflake 2

I received a lot great feedback about my Quick and Easy Snowflake!  (Thank you!  It means a lot to me, to receive feedback!)  I didn't realize that there are so many more people, like me, who hate working with thread.  I was asked by a few people if I was going to write up any more patterns for snowflakes.  The answer, YES!
Again, this one is not blocked yet.  Have I mentioned that I hate blocking?  Perhaps I will get around to it, perhaps not.  One of the great things about using yarn instead of thread, is that it will hold its shape a lot better, without being blocked.  ;)
Here is my second snowflake pattern.  (hopefully a lot more to come!)  This one works up just as quickly as the first one.

  3. I, too, hate working with thread, not so much because it is so thin, but because I have to use a magnifying glass to see it while I'm working with it and I'd much rather use the larger hooks or at least those aluminum rather than the steel ones. Blocking is not my "thing" either. I like to buy the yarn that blocks itself when you wash it. Makes things a whole lot easier that way.

    1. Blocking just feels so tedious to me. What kind of yarn do you use, that blocks itself? I don't know that I am familiar with it.
