Oh boy is that great? Or what? I love the checkerboard/tic-tac-toe!! You have a right to be pleased with AND yourself!

Are you going to make the checkers or the Xs and Os? What are you going to use for that?

I was thinking about purshasing checkers that could be used for either side but crocheted x's and o's sound really fun! I guess I have a few months to decide!
