So that idea I mentioned — well, hm, I’ll let the photos tell the story. The yarns available for purchase weren’t an exact match for the ones in my head, of course. I wanted each individual yarn to be more mottled, to form a fabric that would be more murky than striped. Plus neither of the blues is right.
As usual, I’m not giving up on the idea, but this swatch got frogged and the yarn all stashed for now.
I spent all my so-called creative time this weekend winding and rewinding yarn — the five involved in this misfire, as well as a few WIPs and other swatches I frogged. Urgh.
