Supervisor: Everyone needs ample time to knit all the chapters together.
Supervisor: Yes. That's a problem many PhD candidates make. They don't knit their chapters together as one big piece.
Supervisor: (did not hear Ayu) Well according to this work plan you have, I don't see why there should be any problems. You will have enough time to edit everything and put everything together. When do you think you want to finish it?
Ayu: In another year?
Supervisor: That's fine. If you're done with everything by April even, you'll have enough time to see that everything is knitted together seamlessly.
Of course it was figurative, but for a moment, Ayu thought 'I can knit my thesis?! w00t!'
