Unfortunately, no. I think I got it at a Cracker Barrel before I started hand knitting. I may have to see if I can find an ornament sized pattern for one, or scale down a worsted pattern.
It's interesting to hear what people do and don't do in their crafting. In crochet, I hated making afghans (only did two in about 10 years), but loved making and sewing up toys and doilies of all sorts and shapes. It was harder learning to crochet in thread, than to learn to knit with it.
Maybe some little knitted lace squares for ornaments need to go on my to do list... I miss making ornaments in thread. There are so few snowflake style knitted ornament patterns that I may have to come up with some of my own.
What did/do you crochet?
