I just had to stop with bigger projects and make at least one snowflake. It's getting to be that time of year already. This is Lady Shuttle Maker's hand dyed thread. I have lost the tag and can't remember exactly the name. I'll find out from her as soon as I can. I think it is either Citrus or Lemon/Lime. It is size 20 and I used two shuttles. One would do since it was all one color, but I like to work with two. I loaded 7 yards on shuttle 1 and ended up using 4 yards of it. I eventually used 16 yards on shuttle 2!
This is my pattern that can be found under patterns in the label section on my blog. I did not have to use the "shoelace tricks" since it was 2 shuttles with the same color on both. Please feel free to use the pattern and please send me pictures if you do!
I know my colored snowflakes may look odd to some of you, but they really look stunning on my white Christmas tree! I now have some of Pamela's Rainbow Bright thread. Maybe after a doily I will have enough left to tat a rainbow snowflake from that thread.
