Just an update. Finished round 3 and wanted to block it a bit so it would be easier to handle with all the little rings. This is 3 rounds done, the next five are simple ring and chain, as I have it started. It looks a bit irregular at first, but I think it will level out as the next few rings are added.
I'm not really sure of protocol, but then, I don't often follow protocol. I do what I want. At 63, I've earned the privilege. Anyway, I will probably post progress photos, if for no other reason than to keep me on task.
