I've been doing fiber arts for a while now, but the truth is I have only considered myself an aspiring artist and not an actual artist. I have been so focused on learning new skills that it literally just occurred to me that I have started developing against my own ideas.
Also if I wasn't an artist, the difference between the two skeins of yarn in the same project wouldn't bother me so much. Because the color transition, while not perfect, worked well and the stitch pattern was executed correctly.
On top of that, I have also missed every deadline I've given myself. To put that statement into context you need to understand that I am a project manager by day and engineer by trade. I am very good at my job and don't miss deadlines or requirements very often. Fortunately my friend who asked for this project has been very understanding and wants to make sure I am having fun.
So I have frogged the project and started over because I can't deal with the gauge difference and I can not give him something I am not proud of.
Don't be sad though. The skeins are perfect as individuals.
