This is the project that tried to eat my lunch....... It is deceptively simple - which is the main problem. When I first started it, I couldn't make out that I was supposed to use the shoelace trick in two places, so I just tried twisting the chains. It wasn't too bad after I figured out the first mistake but then I made an unfixable mistake and started again.
Time two went better at the slt points and I went chuggin along until unfixable number two.
Number three has a semi-serious mistake I fudged around. I think only a tatter would notice. Right at the last section I made a chain too short and was not going to start again, so I added a picot to the next chain. Even with mistakes, I like how this turned out and plan on trying it again.
