Then I tried something new, something I've been wanting to do since Frivole designed and shared her Stellar snowflake. I really like it and have jumped on the Lizbeth Blue Ice bandwagon. I'm pleased with it.

On a roll, I thought I'd try Frivole's CrissCross Snowflake. Hmm. These are not the results I was thinking of. I hadn't really seriously tried a picot gauge before so I dutifully made a 2cm one because the directions call for it. Since Frivole's directions are so good, I thought I'd better do it. But I think I misunderstood how picot gauges work OR I tat very tightly? Should a 2cm picot gauge be 1cm in width so the entire picot would be 2cm? It seems like what I have is almost double what I should. And to top it off, there's a ring where the thread split and I couldn't close it. And I made another mistake somewhere else. Truly I don't get flustered too often. Try again or move on? Dare I even try Regal? It's gorgeous but I don't want to mangle it too.
