Single Bead Crochet at last!
It took the 'make a bead ladder for the first row' to get this to work for me- talk about painless! I also made certain my bead ladder was tied securely with the tail to the working thread, so it wouldn't pull open as I began the first actual crocheted row.
To my chagrin, the galvanized beads I chose lost their color after I had completed only one inch of crochet....sigh. Pull off beads. Hunt through all tubes and remove all but the new, permanent finish galvanized beads (those go to the thrift store, or maybe just over the mountainside into the wild woods, for the fairies), put the new PF beads on, redo.
Ahhhh, THAT is how it is supposed to look!
Now, to teach myself to crochet with a bit less tension LOL!
