October = Snowflake Challenge

I am part of a few ongoing swaps and I love them... heck, if it weren't for the cost of materials and shipping, I would be involved in 100.
My Fall Swap at Sweetpeace is themed Christmas. It was going to be ornaments, but that was a little too restrictive and since I don't celebrate Christmas myself, the theme is enough of a challenge. Don't you agree? Now is where you simply nod and agree with me because to otherwise would just be silly, and you are not a silly person, are you?
I've decided on snowflakes. I have 19 snowflake patterns in my favorites list on Ravelry and I plan on making each and every one of those bad boys. There will be a loop attached so they can be hung on a tree, hooked to a suction cup to decorate a window, or even given as a gift or used as a gift tag on a present.
Most of the patterns look fast, I think blocking will take the most concentration. As I make them, I will post pictures for you, my dear reader. It's not a surprise kind of swap, but there has been an unspoken choice by everyone involved so far, not to reveal their gifts to the others yet, so I hope that no one mind my posting this. If you ARE a SPer and in the swap and just happen to see this... shhhhhh! I'll let you pick which you want in return for your silence.
