Success! I've gotten as far as the first repeat!

Success! I’ve gotten as far as the first repeat!

Last night, as Genius on my Mac segued from Bob Seger to Foreigner and Bon Jovi to Blackmore’s Night (I’m pretty eclectic in my musical tastes), progress was finally made on my finger woven strap. It was awesome. I won’t claim it came together right away, but – and I don’t know any other way to explain it – I’m learning to see the threads so I can catch a mistake before it goes too far. I actually caught a couple last night and fixed them. Pretty proud of that! So it’s about eight inches long now, and 1/2 inch wide. Still need lots of practice; my selvedges aren’t perfect, and there’s a little bit of color stippling in some areas. And, of course, there’s plenty more to learn about pattern work. The diagonal pattern is pretty, but it’s also fairly plain. Lots more work to do, lots more fun to have!

Of course, now that I’ve had some success here, impatience rears its ugly head again. What can I say? I’m an Aries; it’s my nature. Now that I’ve crawled a bit, I’m ready to skip walking and go right to running again. I’m actually controlling that urge quite well, I think!
