Margaret let me know on Friday that Sandy Hook already has as many snowflakes as they can use, so I ended up not sending off the ones I had made. Instead, I will save them for the sale next fall. I'll make some more snowflakes for the sale, since I'm in the mood.
Since my tatting deadline was no longer in effect, I decided to finish my newest knit piece. If there's anything I hate worse than cold ears, it's earmuffs. So I made myself an ear warmer, which is like half a hat.
I used the bamboo stitch again, both for visual interest and to make the fabric thicker. I also went down a needle size from what was recommended on the yarn label, so as to make tight stitches that will hopefully be more wind resistant. I began and ended with a few rows of stockinette to make rolled edges. The yarn is Rowan Belle Organic Aran, a wool-cotton worsted. It will get its first test on my way to work tonight.
