First Snowflake

Have you entered the treasury of snow,
Or have you seen the treasury of hail,
Which I have reserved for the time of trouble,
For the day of battle and war?

By what way is light diffused,
Or the east wind scattered over the earth?....
From whose womb comes the ice?
And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth?

Job 38:23,24,29

Spunky Eclectic Club Fiber, Colorado colorway.

It wanted to be snowflakes.
We see them as white, but they are crystals of ice, reflecting all the colors of light back to us.

This colorway captures the iciness of them.

But my handiwork cannot match their beauty and detail. Don't worry. I'll keep trying.

A melding of knitting and crochet with handspun merino- tencel.

Check out the snowflake books by Kenneth Libbrecht and Patricia Rasmussen. Especially if you are tired of shoveling the stuff.
