I decided to combine this April’s announcement with the March wrap up.
March’s snowflakes were Flurry (left), White Buran (top right) and Firn (bottom right). I really enjoyed these snowflakes and managed to get them finished over a couple of evenings, right at the start of March! It was nice to stick to the beginners’ section of the book as I knew the patterns would be achievable.
With this in mind, Jen and I have chosen 4 snowflakes this month! 3 are from the beginners’ section and there is one little challenge in there from the intermediate section. Here goes…
Our choices are:
- Jen’s choice (10) Boreas: Boreas was the ancient Greek name for the cold north wind, and a fitting title for this icy crystal (page 48).
- Martine’s choice (12) Frazil: Frazil is a type of flowing ice that forms in turbulent water (page 49).
- Martine’s choice (25) Ice Prism: Like and ice prism, this design is characterised by its simple and well-defined shape (page 56).
- Jen’s choice (63) Suestada: A Suestada is a strong, winter windstorm on the east coast of South America (page 80) – intermediate.
Remember this is a very informal CAL – dip in and out when you like. You can do all of the snowflakes suggested or just a couple, or indeed pick your own!
