Chenille Hate

I know.
From love to hate in one warp. Look at it. Lying there so straight and peaceful.
As if just a couple of short weeks ago, it was not acting like some kind of live red and gray octopus with exactly 212 arms. (Well, it did end up on the warp beam with a few less arms ...) There were many things that I did in a different way with this warp, all of which innocently changed the yarn from "I can work with this if I'm really patient" to "I am two seconds from getting the scissors!"
Now I know why some people swear off chenille altogether. Getting the CD book from Su Butler, Understanding Rayon Chenille, though perhaps too late for this scarf.
