See that rats nest of yarn in the foreground? I reached the end of my patience fighting with the rayon chenille yarn at the selvedge and as soon as I finished one scarf, cut the rest of the warp off. Life is too short to be fighting with yarn. It's not a great loss...less than six ounces of yarn.
My problem is that I think the next warp is going to be equally challenging. The black I used at the selvedge was stiff and felt pretty nasty. It may suffer the same fate.
