Urban Stripes ~ 1st Section

The first section of the string-along necklace would have been done sooner if I had not made the very same crocheting mistake 4 times. I tore my hair out, riped it out, counted beads, redid the graph and crocheted it again .... four freaking times. Duhhhh.... Always check the simple things first. The graph was right, the table was right, I had strung it right. I had just dropped from 6-around to 5-around in about the same place more than once. It happens to the best of us at one time or another.

Thirty three people have signed up to participate in this experiment. Brave souls as I really have no idea what the finished 42" necklace is going to look like. It's going to evolve as I decide what I want to do in the next section; seven different sections in all.

Since I'm done with the first section and I know that some people want to get going, I'm going to send the emails out to the group a few days early. However, sign-ups will remain open until noon on Wed., July 27th. If you are just now finding this and want more information... Click here to find the information. You can follow the whole thread by using the tag "String-Along".

    Judith you made me laugh, it's heartening to know that the masters' still make mistakes too! I would love to participate, but I'm such a beginner I don't think I could keep up! Looking forward to seeing all the lessons!
