Dear native English speakers!
Please advise on the phrase. Is the idea clear here? It's hard for me to be sure since I'm no NES.
Also, I'm not really sure where I should put the 'day by day' part to make the sentence sound smoother.
The goddess's carpet is in fact the whole world with all people's lives woven into it.
It can be knitted into it. You could weave it into the knitted material afterwards, but they don't really do it. Knitting is realively strechy because of the loops, weaving into it makes it less so. Well, I'll stop being awkward, it is a tale after all.
