Other than making snowflakes, I have several projects that I made the past few weeks as well. My other goal this year is to crochet or knit 30 preemie hats to donate on my 30th birthday in May. So far, I have 10 and starting my 11th hat.


I also made a new set of slippers for myself. I made the same style of slipper two years ago and I finally have worn the old one out after wearing them almost every day. This pattern is called My Heart & Sole and design by Kinga Erdem of My Hobby is Crochet.

And here is my first amigurumi for this year, a very cute Unicorn Pudgy Pal Stuffed Toy! This is designed by Joni Memmott of Briabby Designs. I'm lucky to be one of her regular pattern testers and to see first her latest designs!

How about you, what's on your hook so far this year?

Snowflakes Challenge: Week 2

One of the frequently asked questions is how to block snowflakes and what kind of stiffener to use. Clyndia D. Mathews, author of Crochet Memories made an excellent list of stiffeners from commercial brands to homemade solutions along with recipes, opinions, and expected results for each!

So, how do I block my snowflakes? I use a water-glue (Elmer's All Purpose Glue) solution as the stiffener.  I dip my snowflakes in the solution then squeeze the excess. I use an empty pizza box as my blocking board. My awesome brother made a blocking template for me! I tape it down on my pizza box, on both sides, then wrap it with kitchen plastic wrap. And pin my snowflakes using rust proof T-pins. I'm an impatient person, I blow dry my snowflakes to dry it quickly.

Blocking Template

You can download the blocking template from the files section of my Facebook group crochetreasures.

Snowflakes Challenge: Week 1

How to Crochet Snowflakes, Free Written Patterns And Video Tutorials

Two years ago, I set a very ambitious goal of crocheting 365 snowflakes. Unfortunately, that goal was not achievable so I adjusted it to make 100. But life happens, we moved, and I packed all my things. I ended up with 87 snowflakes. This is the reason why my "100 Snowflakes" blog post has missing 13 pictures, I didn't make it to 100.

This year I will again attempt to make 100 snowflakes, and not that all. I will make a video tutorial for each of them! I will upload the video tutorials every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on my YouTube channel and try to update this blog every Saturday with a summary of the week's work.

If you'd like to work with me to meet this goal, just subscribe to my YouTube channel and be sure to hit the bell icon when you subscribe. That will get you a notification every time I post a new tutorial.

With this said, I'd like to say thank you to Mrs. Deborah Atkinson at http://www.snowcatcher.net for allowing me to use her patterns to make the videos.

Here are the three complete snowflakes for week one!
