Out with the Old Onto the New

 As 2016 came to a close, my last big project was making snowflakes to give as gifts to friends, coworker, teachers and family.  

This year,  I made about 50 snowflakes, and the pattern is Boreas from 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio.  It is a quick snowflake to make with only two rounds.  
 Each snowflake takes me about 10 minutes to crochet, and then stiffening and pinning takes about another 5-10 minutes.  Today on the treadmill I was working on ...
a few more as ran out and need a few more. 
 Our winters are plenty long enough to enjoy a pretty snowflake.   
For  2017, I will have to set my number higher maybe about 75.
