Renulek’s Wiosna Doily 2015
(Progress stalled !!!)
After spending a long time discussing, debating, stalling as I described in the previous post, when I finally decided to continue with the final rounds, I simply chose one almost ‘at random’. Now this is Not the right way to decide; but I do it sometimes …. it’s like I forget to give it a once-over … yup, fools rush in !!! Well, when this is the path you follow, you may have plenty to regret.
Okay, so I chose to not do Round 10, & replace it with Round 11 because maroon seemed to be a good enough dark shade to have near the cream. But the compromise I made to my DH was to make it All-maroon (instead of maroon rings & black chains). My intent was to then add a final Outlining round of black chains & picots.
The Dilemma was that after every 2 repeats I kept feeling that this decision was wrong & many other options kept surfacing. I staunchly pushed them back. Till I couldn’t any more. Hence I seek your collective wisdom, your guidance yet again.
Here’s where it is at :
The maroon round is exactly halfway over with 18 repeats. I don’t mind snipping it all off. Better to waste some time & thread now than to regret at leisure .
I think it is too overbearing ;
it masks the beautiful Round 9 ;
an additional black outline will make it all too dark & shift focus from the lighter rounds.
So I started with the black & beige Round 10 following Renulek’s original pattern, and as chosen by many of you.
My final round will then be 2-coloured - maroon rings & black chains again true to the original pattern.
Here is the crossroads I am at ….
Should I snip off the maroon & continue with the black & beige ?
Or should I simply continue with the maroon & later add a black chain outline ?
I do like the original pattern & black & beige round.
But there are times when the all-maroon doesn’t look all that bad either [I guess I Am over-thinking] and I Have invested a lot of time (one entire week!) & effort (4 days) into it - imagine cutting off this half-complete broad round !
So, dear tatters , you have been so very helpful & prompt with your suggestions & opinions earlier.
I seek another intervention – this time ‘timely’, coz the tatting is on hold till I get responses ….
