I just found your blog and it’s so brilliant. I can’t tell you how much I feel like a complete idiot, haha! I’ve been struggling with a pattern on and off for years, lamenting my lack of help and I just figured it out, after finally remembering that Tumblr, which I haven’t really used in months is a treasure trove of crafting wisdom. Anyway, you’re amazing. 😊🌻 TL;DR: I’m an idiot, you’re amazing.
I sometimes struggle too with a pattern, but like my gran (also my knitting teacher) always said “all in your own time”.
