One of the challenges to weaving a seat is keeping the weave going correctly and believe me, it's very easy to run a course the wrong way or forget which rail you should be going to!
Whew -- really not complaining, just sharing the trials and tribulations of weaving a seagrass seat. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with this project and look forward to placing it where it belongs in the house. What the heck, if I really want to I could cut it off and go again but doubt that will happen any time soon.
