The corals:

The product:

Bill would be proud. I know I am. A reef made for him. After all, he is an Eternal Reef in the Chesapeake Bay.

It's looking really, really good

Bill would be proud.

Three corals this week. Two little ones from Noro and a huge spiral hyperbolic crocheted on the double with Diakeito Diadomina.
