  1. Pretty and intricate. I like seeing the stones and the crochet both with and without the snow.

    Happy New Year!

  4. These are so neat. I think you should start selling them by putting a little ring of elastic on the back side so people could then fit them to their own rock. I see a new cottage industry starting here. :) Snowrocks.

    1. Thank you, KB! I thought my tree was gorgeous this year because I put only handmade ornaments on it. That made it pretty special. It was very sad to take it down...

  6. Yay! Snow!

    Where do you find all those great rocks? Around here they all seem to be too - well - rocky. Not round and smooth like yours.

    I really like the pictures of the snowrocks in the snow. :)

    1. Thanks, Sue! Most are river rocks. Some came with the house, some were given to me by my neighbors because their houses came with round rocks, too, and I bought a bucket of them at a landscaping place. Oh, and I've collected one at each special place, but shhhhhhhhh, don't tell!

  7. Your lovely covered stones are inspiring me to make more...it's been awhile for me. I got derailed with gift crocheting and always my favorite...shawls. I need a good stash of these, just to sit and look at.

    1. Thank you, Everydayephiphanies! I get derailed by other fun stuff, too, such as socks, quilts, amigurumi... But the rocks are so much fun, and they truly are fun to come home to in the garden every day! Especially when I can see only part of them poking through the snow!

  9. Love your rock socks.! I love your blog. Made many of your flakes and gave them in cards. Thanks for all the patterns, you are very clever. MY fav is the queens stage. Question- after they hang freely for about 2 weeks, start to bow. Is that not enough glue? The ones I hung from suction cups against the window are fine. The ones I hung from the curtain rod an thread are floppy. What should I do? I plan I keeping them up all year. I love them, your patterns are super easy to read. Great job. I will check back soon for the ans. Thank You, happy new year, keep on trekkin. pam

    1. Thanks, Pam! Let me ask on Ravelry about the droopy snowflakes; it seems it came up once before and the answer was humidity. The nice thing is they are easily reshaped; just pin them again, probably only on the main points, and give it another layer of watered-down glue. I had the same thing happen with the flakes I stiffened with Modge Podge, and they may be reshaped by finger.

      Humidity... great for the skin, not so great for snowflakes...

    2. Just looked up the old thread on Ravelry, and humidity is indeed to blame for drooping snowflakes. But just reshape. It was noted several times that reshaping is required every couple of years, even if you keep them in storage, unless you keep them perfectly flat.
