This next picture is without a flash and in my normal house setting.
As you can see from the top picture, there is a brightness and sheen to the wool yarn. The second picture the sheen and brightness doesn't show up as much but it is obvious that it is a more intense color.
Perhaps with it being on the floor that difference would be insignificant but expect it would bother me every day looking at it wondering why I didn't do it right. Were it not for having the blue hooked texture right next to it the wool yarn may have worked. But the fact remains the blue hooked wool IS right next to it around the entire rug.
SO, my plans are to not bind with the yarn tonight as I'd planned but wait overnight and see what I think in the morning.
OH, the corner is turned under so there really is an edge there which is whipped with thread, I just didn't refresh the corner so it was obvious.
To be continued......
