project status: detail
You can also see in some areas where I carried the unused yarn thru to the next solid swatch because I didn't want to drop and restart in smaller areas. Once I spread it out on the bed, I can tidy some areas up by spacing things out better and trimming some loose ends.
My husband tells me that I notice details and less than perfect areas because I am the creator of the piece. He assures me that most folks aren't going to notice unless I go pointing out the flubs. I know that's probably true, at least to a certain extent. But I don't like giving work that has ugliness cuz I know it's there and it's not done right. I hoping that I can fix what needs to be fixed.
Once the entire piece is spread on the bed, I'll take another picture of the entire thing. Sometimes seeing it as a whole instead of small areas like shown above gives a more accurate idea of how it is perceived by others. Hopefully, I won't have too much left on this one to do before I can give it to the intended recipients.
