What are you most proud of? The new skills I've learned in this course totally relit my crochet fire! I don't have the world's greatest attention span, so a pattern that starts off with a "Chain 315" would normally be a non-starter for me, knowing I'll just have to turn around and do some sort of stitch into all of those chains, THEN have to fight with those overly-tight stitches after that! Tackling foundation double crochet stitches seems to have solved all of the above! It kept me interested, had a better-looking and easier to work with result, and gave me the sensation of getting to "skip a step" when I finished the fdc row. Motivating! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I really recommend adding foundation stitches to any crochet arsenal. I've found my crochet mojo again. It may take a few attempts to really hit your stride, but once you do (and especially once you start working into the result), you'll be sold. I used stitch markers to help me keep track of the correct placement of the foundation dc stitches until I mastered the 'pinch a stitch' technique. But I got there!
