Spot the Snowflake!!


(Related to my blog entry for December 8, 2009:)

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH ... I'm beginning to wonder if I've completely lost my touch!! Sigh Can you can spot the snowflake on the picture above? It is supposed to jump off the glove and smack you in the eyes! This project is a FLOP and is destined for the frog pond (rippit rippit). And I am soon going to be heading off in search of a varigated yarn with more contrast to the pretty light blue for the flakes!
