I think I'm beginning to get the hang of this crochet thing. Last week we made the snowflake and this week the flower square. The mat at the bottom was where I tried experimenting with different threads. The purple is ribbon which surprised me by being really nice to crochet with. I would like to make some of those amigurumi animals so I've borrowed a book. I'm not totally certain I understand the instructions so the results may be interesting rather than accurate.
