Ohana Crochet Portrait (Commission)

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Because there are so many faces, and from previous experience with mistakes, I have decided to crochet up one half and then down the other. This solves 2 problems. First, if I worked it all at once, there would be come a point during which I would be working on 3 faces at the same time--and there simply is not enough room on my desk, or on my homemade spool rack, for so many strings. Doing one half at a time means that there is only one point at which I work on 2 faces. The second problem solved is that if a mistake is made, I might still have to redo several days' work...but at least I don't have to undo an entire half of the project that has no problems. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not advice, but I feel it must be written: We mourn the loss of the Ohana project, stolen before its rightful owners even got to see it. Let us appeal to our chosen figure(s) of authority that it may still find its way home.
