I'm trying to be kind of random with the colors but it is not easy. Due to the varying heights of the stitches it's difficult to get the right balance of light and dark, cool and warm. In some areas I think I'm good, but in other areas things stand out much more than others. When that happens I try to 'hide' that color in a skinny stripe.
I use each color once before I repeat anything, with the exception being the white to offset so much color and bring a little light to it.
For the most part the stitches are various combinations of double crochet and some half doubles, with a few thinkers thrown in for good measure. It keeps everything quite interesting and doesn't grow boring as you're not doing the same thing for a million consecutive rows. Some of the color pairings are interesting to see come together as it looks so much different in stitches than when I line up rows of skeins on the floor.
Now here is my dilemma. This is one of the edges. Ignore the ends. I'm trying to.
But here's the thing that makes me get slightly clenchy. It's the other edge.
That's some wiggly action happening up there. I'm counting my stitches and all is well in that regard, so I don't know what's happening. I'm planning on doing a border but I don't know if that will help even anything out as I've never had this problem before. Anybody know? It doesn't look so terrible in person but every time I pick this up to work on it I spend a good five minutes pondering if I should stop and start over with something that will be more uniform, or if I should just keep going with it. I think that's why it's so slow-going, I'm hesitant to grow it too much as I'm kind of unsure about that edge. Your thoughts? What would you do? I'm really having quite a conflict in my brain over this.
This must be how Hamlet felt. I'm super sure of it. Any advice would be appreciated.
