This one is definitely very challenging on the forearms! The most difficult part is to have the forearm strength to last the whole sequence, while not being panicked trying to get into the split. Questions I have while practicing:

1) it looks like whenever I am about to split the silk into two pieces for the half-turn, my silk seems to be already crossed? I find myself uncross them to sort and then cross again to be sure. Does it matter?
2) How do you get into clean crochet? I find myself fidgeting in the air while trying to make sure my wraps not unwrapping?
3) I find myself constantly moving quickly through the sequence because my forearms are taking a hit. What are the resting points? Is there any place I can engage my legs for resting?
