The "complicated" section involved working a pair half-stitch through six other pair. Not so bad except that it had to go backwards through the pairs before heading into the 8-leg spider.
When I sat for a minute to look at it the next morning, the light bulb went on and I worked it with no problems at all.
You can never tell.
Last night I got involved in watching a couple of fascinating shows on YouTube and actually finished the whole dang thing.
I never realized working in whole stitch was so fiddly to keep the tension right.
Everyone should see these films. I couldn't stop watching.
