Now Why Was That So Hard?

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.
