Originally, I'd planned to do six cable strips in six different colors. I finished the first five strips rather quickly (for me), then the project stalled. Why? I can't decide whether I like the teal, the sixth color designated for this stashbusting effort.
The afghan will work without a sixth strip, so the issue here isn't size, it's color.
The teal, which is beautiful in person, seems to tilt the color balance in an unexpected way. The best way I can explain it is that even such a small sample dominates the color scheme completely, turning the mostly-blue-with-a-hint-of-green afghan into something much more closely approaching half green and half blue.
I've changed my mind so many times, I feel a bit dizzy. So, I'm seeking counsel from you, my fellow fiberists. Should I keep knitting the teal strip, or quit while I'm ahead?
You tell me ...
It's Wednesday, you know the drill. Visit Tami's Amis and Small Things to see lovely works in progress.
