Sometimes another set of eyes is what is needed.
Last night my friend Ercil stopped by for dinner. She asked how my current project was going. I told her that it wasn't - I was stalled out. "I think it has too much mohair!"
I showed her my warp chains, and she immediately saw the problem. "It is too much mohair and this blue is too light." She was absolutely right.
So this morning I went to my stash and found an indigo dyed merino/silk yarn that I'd spun up a few years ago. Perfect!
Being on the wrong track had me going nowhere. Now that I've found the right path, I'm anxious to get moving again.
