Oh, crochet scales! I keep wanting to learn how to do those, and foundering on my psychological inability to read patterns. *wry* (Not saying you need to explain them; I'll probably blank on the explanation. But expressing my admiration that, to be lolcat about it, YOU HAS LEET SKILLZ! O:D )
Thank you! It's fun, though I'm not at all sure I could explain the crocheted scales, even if that would help!
