This past Sunday, our little family of four spent the day at my parents’ farm. It was quiet except for the constant chatter of our clan – the three sisters and our families. Boy, can we chatter. The weather was perfect for chopping down Christmas trees, eating cookies, and drinking hot chocolate.
Right in the middle of the festivities, my Mother passed out small, white paper-wrapped gifts. Riley and Quinn each received one. To my intense delight, she’d crocheted a snowflake ornament for each boy with yarn left over from their baby blankets.
Isn’t that sweet? They’ll have their baby blankets on their Christmas trees for the rest of their lives!
I cannot claim to crochet. But I’ll pass along the pattern in case you do. Please click on this link to read the pattern and visit a beautiful blog:
Mom tells me it’s extremely easy (I may ask her to teach me how to crochet using this very pattern). The one thing to note is that the pattern author lives in England, where “double crochet” is actually our “single crochet” here in the States. If you live in the U.S., make sure you do single crochet wherever it says double.
Leave it to my awesome Mom to make me all weepy inside.
A snowflake really can say “I Love You.” Thanks, Mom!
