Good bye January!

1 Feb

Wow, here we are 1/12 of the way into 2012. My year has already been overly busy, leaving little time for my blog and crafts although I was introduced to the world of Pinterest over the holidays so the ideas and inspiration are definitely not lacking!

Our Utah winter has just not been typical this year with barely any snow. The blessing is—no shoveling! The ski resorts are having to make their own snow. Since we don’t have any snow on the ground to make a snowman, here is my January snowman.

I used a snowman pattern written for yarn, and adjusted my hook size to my plarn. Frosty’s buttons are from my Mom’s button box that I recently acquired. His hat is made from a deconstructed VHS tape! Makes the perfect shiny top hat. He is stuffed with the remains of plastic bags, like bag handles, that are cut up for plarn and a few small rocks to stabilize him. Such a great snowman and he won’t melt away, but may melt your heart!
