Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. -Plato.
Lacework cannot be rushed. Almost anything can mess you up. Phone calls, engaging tv programs, a sip of coffee, etc. And one slip up can have you cussing like a sailor and wondering just exactly how you're going to fix it, and believe me, you don't want to be fixing lacework.
So while you're waiting for the next inch or two of progress, I invite you to visit Koko, the Fabulous Feline.
