Another failed warp!

February 25, 2011

Once again I re-established the fact that #10 cotton crochet thread is out of the question for me with double weave.  I am doing an awesome piece, all be it slow, and found 4 mistakes on the back ;~{.  They are called teardrops, and I definitely know why.  I just wanted to cry.
I have been working on it since Saturday and only have about 5 in. done.  I was hoping I would be o.k. this time because I don't always want a band as heavy as the #3 produces.  This is my 3rd failed warp...I am definitely off my game.  Maybe time to try a tried and true technique, or maybe even pebble weave...

This side looks lovely!

This is the side where you could see the mistakes.  Couldn't miss them with that pale pink showing on this VERY dark fuscia.  I cheated and cut them out before I thought to take picks.  I wanted to see what exactly would happen.  Caused a couple of VERY long warp floats.  ;~{

Here is what it became when I started it again in plain weave.

Well, your mistake has turned into a beautiful plain weave. I know how frustrating it is to have it not go well.....but, now move onto the next thing. Try something new. You tried. It doesn't work. It's OK!
