I've finally been taking baby steps in learning to crochet. These teeny ice skate ornaments were favorited on Ravelry by crocheting friend Jan, and as I had a supply of jumbo paperclips I went for it and made several pairs. Hooray, they look like what they are supposed to look like!
Not so much my first attempt at a granny 'square', which ended up with a few more corners than your typical square. And this was labeled Beginner. There is another square in the book that is more of a Beginner's Beginner, so I'll try that before tackling this sucker again.
