Thanks! In hindsight, I've been trying some more difficult weaves and have decided I'm not so addicted to it after all...
that's so funny that you're not so addicted! those of us who are, are, and become addicted at the first weave. shaggy loops isn't really a weave...it's chain, not maille (and was created by my friend , the owner of metaldesignz in canada). maille can be a bit more difficult, but if you learn euro 4 in 1 first, that's a great building block for the european weaves. then you learn japanese 6 in 1 and learn the japanese weaves , and so on. then you start creating your own weaves and on and on! LOL.
what you've done is chain making, and a really fine job. people tend to call "it" chainmaille when it isn't. chain is round and 3-d if you will; maille is flat and mesh (maille is the french word for mesh, hence the word).
don't be discouraged, but also, don't worry...there are plenty of other addictions, so if chain and maille are not it...you'll find others.
