I kept going because I was hoping that I would like them in the end. The O and L are fine because they have a lot of white in the pattern, but the N and E are bugging me.
For now I've decided not to redo them. I'm going to add some embellishment to the wide section of each letter tomorrow. I can't decide if I want to use felt and buttons or a paper embellishment on each. I'll see if I like them better after the embellishments are made. If the N and E are still and issue I'll go back and add another layer to cover the white. I'm hoping that once they are embellished and up on the wall I wont mind the white bits...we shall see. For now I'm going to watch a little television and work on knitting some Christmas gifts.
