necklace

Even when something doesn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, I have a hard time getting rid of it. Tuesday’s woven necklace is a prime example.  I didn’t like it. I knew I would never use it. Every time I passed it sitting on the dining room table I sort of glared at it. But I did not toss it out, even though I thought about it. I thought about it a lot.

It was one of those days when my rhythm was off. I was not very productive, but it was still evening before I could sit down and work on any kind of project. Nothing was clicking.  I kept thinking about that woven necklace. Then it hit me.  I took yesterday’s project and unwove (de-weaved?) it.  Leaving the chained lengths as they were, I knotted each end then tied the ends together.  Suddenly, I had something that was usable. The clumpy woven necklace has become a multi-strand necklace.

I don’t think this will help my propensity to never throw anything away, but I ended up much happier with the result, and didn’t waste yarn.
