As expected, I finished the repair of round 8. No issues except for a few more ends that need to be sewn in.
I think it looks awesome! Minus the few extra ends that need to be dealt with. Granted, I thought it looked awesome before I found the mistake. But it doesn't cup anymore, which is great. I decided that I should sew in a few of the ends that need it before getting round 9 back on track. I hope to finish that tonight and then I can get threads reattached to round 9.
That's it for now. With any luck, I'll have round 9 finished, again, by next weekend. I'll be sure to post again then. And, thanks for everyone who has commented over the past several days. Your encouragement and help has been greatly appreciated. Til next time.
