I have been a member of a group called Snowflake Mondays for a while. We have been so very busy for the past several weeks that I haven't kept up with it.. but will be able to start again in the next few days. In the process of thinking about this, I came across this site on HGTV.com that has great crocheted icicle patterns. They can be beaded or made with eyelash yarns … or pretty much however your creative eye sees them. They are very simple and I will be adding these to my snowflake collection for my Christmas tree and decorations for this year.
