Only 94 days to Christmas!
Time to get going on Christmas knitting and crocheting!
Okay, it's only September so I suppose there's really no reason to panic. These little snowflakes have been in my queue for a while - I've got a thing about snowflakes and these could be really cute with the addition of interesting little faces. These are crocheted from white baby yarn held double - stash busting, yay! - using a 5.00mm/US H8 hook and finish at 4.25" across. Just as the designer suggests, I think these'll be really cute to decorate packages or to feature on handmade Christmas cards.

Has anyone used spray starch? I'm wondering whether I can spray starch the finished flakes to block the points out nicely and to stiffen up the finished flakes a bit. The yarn is acrylic; can I starch it? And what about spray glitter? Is that a good idea or is it altogether too much? Oh the possibilities!
So now you know the slightly crazy stuff going on around here. Have a look at the list over at Tami's Amis - it's almost certain that there are people putting their time to more practical use!
