Last June while in our pilot class for our Japanese Inro needlepoint piece, we all had difficulty when it came to doing the little section of sea grass. I remember doing the first two, frogging it because I didn't like how it looked, trying it again with 2 threads instead of 1, and frogging that also. We kept rediagramming the stitch on the white board trying to get the count right. Everyone had a problem.
Yesterday I sat down. Followed the instructions to a tee and it worked wonderfully well.
Guess we all had some collective mental block last June. Too funny. Now I neeed to outline and do some French knots and I'll be ready to tackle the finishing.
