    It’s so much easier than knitting. You can’t drop stitiches, for one thing! As for how long it took, it’s hard to say, as I was just picking it up whenever I had a spare moment. The stitch I used here, a simple blanket stitch, is very easy but very slow. There are more complex stitches that are faster.

    That’s amazing. I’ve read about nalebinding but have never seen anyone actually do it! How long did it take you? It sounds like an arduous process (compared to knitting or crochet, that is)
