I was working on these for the CSCL Annual and then to sell in the shop, but I was using a new pattern that turned out to be missing a bunch of instructions so there were some fairly large mistakes in the making.
Of course, the default in this situation is that I keep them [...]
Working through my boots. Today was meant to be devoted to painting, but I finished that much faster than I thought I would so I’ve mostly been staring at the pattern for putting this all together and getting confused.
