Rainbow Whatsit @ 17 Days

I'm continuing to call this a whatsit even though I now have a solid plan for it. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it is fun to be a bit mysterious. Hint This is the first non-flat piece I've attempted and only the second that wasn't some form of rectangle. The one snowflake being the first item I worked in the round.

Working in the round is still very new and awkward for me and I'm having a great struggle with the second section of this project. As you can see the round piece has curled where it is supposed to lay flat. This is the eighth or ninth attempt and I've only passed this number of rounds once before. I'm going to have to take it out again and I think I'm going to have to research online for help on what I'm doing wrong before I make another atempt.

I began the bobble row on the edge that has no tails just so I could get it in the picture. I'm using the thread color called Mexican, a variegated that contains all the primary and secondary colors. I used a five quadruple crochet in each space. I'm considering taking it out and trying six quads per space.

As you can see I've got a huge task in tail tucking in store. With three iterations of the 16 color pattern and 2 tails per stripe that gives me 16X2X3=96

I have a very bad track record for tucking tails. It is not my favorit thing about crochet. But I am so anxious to see this project complete maybe I will be more dedicated to that end than usual.

The last several large projects I worked on were all gifts for someone else. This one is a gift for me. Again, poor record in finishing things I make for myself. Maybe this time will be different.
