Changed my mind
Get it? "Knot" for the . . . heh.
I crack me up.
Yeah, I 'un-wove' this petal - and I'm itching to get back to 'reweaving' it using my second color choice, as I can't quickly set my hands on the palest of pale blue #5 Perle cotton. And YES, I am refusing to use #8 as the alternative - even though I do possess a nearly full ball of DMC in the perfect color (in an eight). Wah.
See, I have my heart (and brain) set on a thick weave for this flower.
Am I wrong?
Should I have gone with a size eight?
Oh, I don't know.
I trekked out yesterday with the intention of buying ONLY that darned light, light, lighter-than-light blue in a skein of #5, but of course - the local stores were a complete letdown. Only guilt prevented me from driving another 27 miles (one way) and back to stop into a real LQS to obtain the perfect thing.
Rats! Crap! Darn it all! I should know by now to always follow my heart - it is tied directly to my instincts. Ah, well.
I do know, though, that the variegated was absolutely wrong for it, so it was the right thing to undo.
