Anyone else having problems with row 1 already? Ive done it twice and can't seem to make it work on a ch 14. I'll go try it again

Ignore that lol the third time it worked fine, I have no idea what I was doing wrong but I apparently need more coffee!

Kath, i had the same problem as u when i was going to crochet square #10, i don't know what happened, but I had to start 5 times before I got it right and I have no idea where and why I was doing the same mistake over and over again.

I got half way through square 2 - I'm that far behind! still intend to do it all - got sick big time (funny description on blindedbyinsight.blogspot.com), can hardly move the mouse, much less a crochet hook!

Gah! I'm falling so far behind, I've been working on dog show stuff. I hope to be back to this soon. Love the look of all the squares, though!

Hugs to all!

These squares are looking so pretty! We had to run off to watch the grandsons' Pinewood Derby for a couple of days but are back now and getting ready to post another square! Don't worry about falling behind :) :) Yours will all come together eventually and I'll be leaving these instructions up. Kudos to everyone for the accomplishment!
