Sometimes you start something and you get to a point where you're not sure whether to carry on or not. This is one of these items... It is Mary Konior's Flowerpiece doily. I started it yesterday whilst I was waiting for some thread to arrive for my handkerchief edging. I always like to have more than one project on the go anyway as I like variety.
But I'm not happy with the way the chains look. Even on the round where I am, though the chains have the same number of stitches, you can see that they don't all have the same curve because of the shape of the motifs in the centre. It's very difficult to make these repeated chains look perfect anyway as the slightest change in tension as you snug up your stitches can make a difference to the chain.
Also, though I love the shades of "Juicy Watermelon", in practice I find it distracts too much and prevents the eye from seeing the design and for that reason I think I should have used a different thread for the centre.
So, should I try to finish it anyway? Or cut my losses?
