Playing Around

So, I've wanted to try making a kippah for a while. I'm too chicken to try it from string, yet. So, I thought I would start with yarn. I tried a traditional one that would be solid, but didn't like the way it was turning out. A switch of gears, some digging through patterns, and adaptation yielded this: Close up...
I was wondering if people think it looks too much like a snow flake? I'd appreciate opinions!



My concern about the "snowflake thing" led me to give this yarn a try...


What do you think? I spotted this yarn and it reminded me of Hanukkah. =-D


In other news, here is the beginning of a scarf that has now traveled to the frog pond. I still think it is a good idea, however, in this yarn the body was too stiff. Since my goal is a scarf for a nine-year-old, I'm on to plan B.
Lastly, as promised a pic of the center of the baby blanket. Haven't worked on the edging since my last post. It will take some uninterrupted time and concentration. It will have to wait for the right moment.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love the kippah! Especially the colored one. And the center of the baby blanket is awesome! I love how beautiful crocheted baby blankets come out. I can't wait to start on mine...the one you created the pattern for. Hope you had a nice holiday!
