Today I'm attempting #2- Fishtail Braid (found here)
I've actually tried this braid before, and I just can't seem to get the hang of it. It always ends up horribly tangled because I get impatient before I'm even halfway through. I'm going to give it a serious effort tonight though.

WOW! I am very impressed with myself tonight. At first, I didn't think it was going too well, since the first few strands seemed pretty loose. But I just kept going and pulling it tight each time. I think it turned out pretty well aside from a little chunk that is trying to escape ;)
See, I think it looks pretty good! Here's a close-up:
See the part that's trying to escape?
I'm actually kind of excited, because now I don't have to just do the normal braid (three strand or four). So, check that one off the list! :)
