I wasn't too sure about this yarn from the start. I thought the colour combination probably had too much contrast to work well as a marle yarn, but I decided to give it a go anyway. Then somehow I ended up with more yarn on my bobbin than I'd anticipated, so when I went to ply it off using the usual shortcuts I have for samples I ended up with a handful of snarls. At that point I stopped.
Time to step back, take a deep breath and let it sit for a while. Perhaps I can cut it up and card it into a different colour combination.
