Keep up the good work! I got discouraged about how long it was taking, and seemed like I wasnt making any process, but now I'm almost done with the panta and more motivated than ever to get mine finished

Thanks Aaron, there was a snowstorm Saturday and around -15C yesterday so it was the best time to start latching.

It gets easier as you start to develop a routine. I got it to where I could latch a whole line in 22 minutes, the length of a clone wars episode
