Waiting for Inspiration to Hit!
I really do want to use the Rigid Heddle, but I am drawing a blank about how to use these colors! There are only 123 yds in each skein, so it is going to take some thinking to do this yarn justice.
Are any of you ever so paralized by the thought of wasting beautiful yarn that you end up not doing anything with it? This yarn was originaly bought for a very intricate intarsia shawl. The chart was a color chart and not a symbol chart and some of these colors on the chart were so close in value that I found it impossible to follow. Now I am usually pretty good at chart reading, but it may be that these old eyes were just not meant to read that chart. The yarn has been waiting for 2 years to be used, and I think that this project will be the answer, I just need to choose the colors and do the math. That is going to have to wait I think til we get back from the beach, and maybe some cooler weather wouldn't hurt either!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
