It's all happening!
Finally it's starting to make some sense to me.
In lightning speed I was able to redo all the knitting I lost the other day and get further along so that I could actually start to make sense of how it gets put together. Suddenly it's completely clear.
Now it's going to take a little break while I try to keep from melting in the summer heat and humidity. It's no fun to knit in 30°C (~90°F) weather with a growing wool blanket in your lap. I think I'm going to cast on something else while waiting for it to cool down a bit.
I'm thinking it's time to play with my soy. Yes. That sounds like much fun.
