I smashed my 11x11 PB by 14.5 mins, with a time of 1h25m58s. :)
Another big chunk off it - now 1h18m37s. :)

After 6 month of practice, but also laziness, I finally became colour neutral. And now I'll probably practice 4x4 and also practice 3x3 without worrying about colour neutrality being harder to master and maybe get into pyra and 2x2.
I'm only really colour neutral on 2x2, well on 1x1 too. :p

Dual color-neutrality helps on a lot of puzzles. Of course, you should be full CN on 2x2, pyra, and skewb, but on 3x3 it does for sure, and on any big cubes that you use Yau, you should be CN with F2C but not necessarily cross edges. being able to do white and yellow helps a lot.

After about 8 months of not learning any new ZBLL cases, I finally got around to finishing one more set (T FFLR). Actually not that big of a deal, since it'd been sitting at 8/12 for quite a while already. Should probably just finish the last ten algs so I can finally claim to know all of T ZBLL or something.

I can officially cube again, and I am welcomed back to a 3x3 PB!

Cube: Valk Elite
Method: CFOP

single: 14.08
Time List:

1. 14.08 F2 D2 L2 D2 U L2 B2 D2 R2 F2 U' L2 F' D' R D2 F' U F L U'

Reconstruction:

x2 y // Inspection
F R L2 // Cross
y' U' R U2 R' U' R U R' U2 y L' U L U y' R U' R' // First pair
y2 R U R' U' R U R' U2 y L' U L // Second pair
U R U2 R' y R' U R // Third pair
y' R U R' U R U' R' // Fourth pair
U2 F R U R' U' F' y' R U R' U R U2 R' // OLL
U // PLL

I know there is major inefficiencies in my F2L. I am working on learning PLL before I learn OLL, so I use 2-Look for now. If anyone has some F2L tips, that would be great, although I would rather them be intuitive or short algorithms.

now on, I'll look ahead
After more than 2 years the legacy is now complete.

Some time ago, I decided to take on the challenge of building a 1x1, but my quest ceded after the fact that I couldn't find nor want to buy stickers for the cubie, originally a surprising 6-sided dice. But after replacing the thin, sticky, colorful material from a 3x3 with calendar ones, hope was found.

I applied some form of transparent and strong liquid onto the cubie, and placed some center stickers on top, completing this almost impossible journey.

But a new challenge has arisen: solving it.

I got a 9.57 on my first try (I average 12)
My reconstruction (funny that I also got a PLL skip):
x2 y // inspection
F R L2 // cross
d R U R' U R U' R' // first pair
U L U L' U L U' L' // second pair
y' U2 R U R' U' f' L' f // third pair
U' R U R' U2 R U' R' U R U' R' // fourth pair
U2 R U R' U R U' R' U' R' F R F' // OLL
// PLL + AUF skip

52 moves, 5.4 TPS
