Inside of me there are two distinct weavers… the lazy one… and the one who wants to do it right. Sometimes they get into a bit of a brawl about how a project should be handled and this weekend was one of those times!
You see, there’s this lovely yarn and it’s been begging to be a scarf for ages. Problem is that it runs through a range of purple-blue-green-orange tones which make it interesting to cross with another yarn. What had been intriguing me was, in fact, what would happen if I cross it with itself, but that could end up a busy mess, so what to do?
Well sample, of course.
Except lazy-weaver was saying (imagine this in a very annoying, whiny voice) “I don’t want to waste yarn on a sample! I just want to get weaving.” and that didn’t sit at all well with the other weaver.
They did, to their credit, almost compromise on crossing the coloured yarn with a purple that was guaranteed to work. Or even black if worst came to worst. In the end though, get-it-right-weaver snuck in when lazy wasn’t looking and made sure we sampled with black, purple and the yarn crossing itself! Well done to the get-it-right-weaver, I say.
So now I know which yarn will be used and I’ve washed it, so I know how it’ll finish up. All while ignoring the quiet grumbling in the background of lazy-weaver.
