Work-in-Progress Wednesday: Christmas ornament

Buried deep in my yarn basket is a good intention and a promise unfulfilled.

When a local craft store was going out of business last year I bought some sparkly red yarn. Esther asked me to make her a Christmas ornament and I enthusiastically agreed. We found a pattern for a 3D snowflake and I got to work.

But the thing is, I really dislike the pattern and I couldn’t tell you why. It requires 3 crocheted snowflakes and I pushed myself through two. And then I stopped.




So this one missed Christmas 2013. I promised Esther to have it done by Christmas 2014. That will require crocheting one more snowflake and then assembling the whole mess. It’ll take less than two hours.

Given my current Thing budget situation you’d think I’d be all over this. It’s Free! And it’s a Thing!

But truthfully? I’ll just stuff it back in my yarn basket. And probably pull it out somewhere around December 23.

    Oh. My. Goodness. What a job! I completely understand why it’s not on the top of your list of wips to finish asap.
    The snowflake pattern itself is pretty, though!

    How about two 2D ornaments?
