I don't quite know what to call these little ornaments. They aren't really snowflakes...kinda a cross between a snowflake and a granny square! Aren't they fun. I came up with these this past weekend. I had other things I could have worked on, but I was bored, and the idea for these ornaments has been lurking in my head for a little while now. I used embroidery floss and a small crochet hook for these. They look great on a Christmas tree. I like them in Christmas colors but would also like to try them in some jewel tone colors and maybe add some beads.
These are actually double sided, meaning the ornament is actually two grannies crocheted together, so it has a neat weight to it. I especially like the octagon-shaped ornament.
With Christmas coming soon I can't seem to focus, I have so many projects I want to get done in time for Christmas! Scarves to make, ornaments, and a couple other little goodies. Let's hope the long Thanksgiving weekend will give some time to do some of these things!
