So after completing a work-related project for work this weekend, I am making a new effort to relearn what I learned previously of nalbinding.
I have succeeded in relearning how to start, and how to do a line of stitching in Mammen stitch (the one I had learned before). I even did an adequate "spit splice"--something I'd never really succeeded at before. But now I'm kind of stuck on pivoting.
At least I have plenty of yarn, and no shame about restarting when necessary.
