Crochet Snowflakes-Works in Progress

I'm doing some last minute crafting for Christmas. My father didn't want anything this year, he said that if we HAD to give him something it had to be handmade. These were rules I could abide by, and ultimately speaking I can't just NOT give my dad something for Christmas. Also I had no idea what to give the new inlaws. I figured I could kill two birds with one stone, as the saying goes, and whip up a big batch of snowflake ornaments.

This pile of curly picots is five flakes waiting to have their ends woven in, and to be stretched and stiffened. It's been a couple days work, mostly in the evenings after Travis, my husband, has gone off to work. I am going to do a handful more before the week is out. I have used one pattern and the others I have made up as I went along, adapting elements of the pattern to make flakes that have continuity, sort of. I may post some of the patterns that I had developed, after the real work of the project has been completed.
