Backwards Progress

Today I was going to talk about my new shawl design that I mentioned on Monday. I'd worked on it all day Monday and made some really amazing progress, and I was very proud of myself. The shawl is very pink, very speckly, and I've been having a lot of fun with it.

Until I looked at it yesterday and realized that there is a huge change in the color saturation where I joined the second ball.

Ugh.

I threw it in the sink to soak to see if enough of the dye would come out so as to be less noticeable, but it doesn't look like that worked. So now it's drying, and I'll have to rip out...at least 12 hours' worth of work.

Ughhh.

I just can't, right now. This is so frustrating when it happens, and the worst part is, I wondered early on if I should stagger the different skeins throughout the shawl, but wound up they looked really close (reminder: cakes LIE). So blah blah uggity blah. I'm not a happy designer right now, and it's all on me and my choice to not listen to my gut and alternate the damn skeins.
