Pairs in a spin

I've been trying out crochet spirals with several colours.  After admiring lots of fabulous examples on the internet and reading several tutorials I sat down with wool and hook and a pile of stitch holders.

The first part of the process is a fiddle but once the pattern is established it is methodical but you have to pay attention to count stitches and change colour.  I'm pleased with the end result and ready to move on from practice to a real project.

Hoping you are all having a good start to March and looking forward to what you are sharing in a pair.
