Remscheid/ Rotte...






I saw this book by Caitlin Sainio about crochet snowflakes. I thought it was a funny idea. Absulutly kitschy but also nice to do :-) it is good for using my remnats of wool

      thank you Peter! I checked out your blog today. Nice coat you are making.
      I was thinking about making a scarf out of the snow flakes, certainly a lovely item for your cousin Kathy :-)
