Project #6: Back loop only slip stitch

This week I practised new crochet stitches. When I discovered this pattern for fingerless gloves by Tanja Osswald, I had to have it. As I don't know that much about crochet I followed the advice to practise slip stitches, especially back loop only. I used different videos and tutorials, e. g. this one.
It's really not that easy. As you can see in the picture, the edge isn't always straight, I tried crocheting the edge with (lower rows) and without (upper rows) chain stitches and by now I prefer adding a chain stitch when turning the piece.
However I think I got a pretty good hang of using back loop only chain stitches and will start on the pattern very soon. I'll show you if it's working out...
