Not What It Looks Like

Not a night sky, not a pseudo Christmas tree with candles, not a Jinksy graphic - merely a collection of crochet snowflakes I took to my classmates this morning, to thank them for the fun we've had this term at our creative writing class. I let them cho0se one each.

And over on Fridge Soup, I offered to send one or two to the Blogger who left the cleverest, or funniest caption for the snowman cartoon I'd found on Google.  As ever, you have to be in it to win it, so why not put your thinking caps on? See if you can captivate me with your offering, and I promise to post you a non-melting, everlasting snow flake to say thanks!

  1. They are beautiful and each one different, just like in reality.
    You are very clever.
    Did you follow a pattern or make them up?

  2. Maggie, I make them up as I go along. Even if I try to make two similar, there are always small differences!

  10. I thunk and thunk and finally left an answer. But this one was harder than it looked.

  11. Sorry Jinksy, I am all out of snappy repartee at the moment. Feeling rather sorry for myself as well as dull and flat.
    But I do appreciate your pretty snowflakes.

  12. Ohhhh, and now I know what you mean with the snowflakes. They are wonderful :-) Is there anything you can't create? I'm in awe. Pretty good work for a cardboard cut out ;-)

  13. Carolina, if I were a betting man (I'm not), I would almost bet that those are crochet, not cardboard, snowflakes.

  17. Lovely snowflakes. I take my hat off to you being so creative - it takes me all my time to follow a pattern (as you can see if you look at my ‘other’ (crafty) blog. I’ve just finished a jumper for my granddaughter - ta da! as she would say in the way that only a 3 year old can!
