Well that last experiment didn't work. Let's try again. If this doesn't result in what I expect, I may have to shelve the idea for a bit and let it percolate some more.
Using Quince and Co Tern and Knitter's Pride Karbonz.
On another note, still trying Ello and I think I like it. I'm still learning how to find people and so far only following @ellocrafting.
