Hairpin Lace/Crochet

Just to make my life easier, I'm going to call this HPL from now on. I have enough trouble typing things out properly, why complicate my life unneccesarily? Yesterday I picked up a HPL loom at my LYS. Naturally I had to try it out.

My first attempt did not have very even tension, as you can see. Attempt #2 was significantly better. I also took a hint from Stitch Diva Studios and put in a guide line, so I would know which loop was which when I crochet them together. Which I will probably attempt tonight. This is very easy to do so far and works up very fast. Hopefully attaching the strips to each other is just as easy. Fingers crossed!
