I picked this back up today after being shamed by my goal review for October. At least this way I know I have already met my goal of making some progress on this project this month 😛
I made the command decision to transfer this onto my interchangables instead of the cheap bamboo straights I was using. This was the right call because these needles are way nicer, and it actually fits without having to keep it completely scrunched up all the time. I can finally see what it looks like at its full size.
