Day 338/365 – Twenty Seven Steps

Mistakes are merely steps up the ladder. – Paul J. Meyer

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 337/336)

We had a little experiment the past two days with the same subject, one black and white image, which wasn’t guessed, followed by the color version. I figured that your perspective would change once you saw the color image. Indeed it did …

Katie said, “Wow, putting the color in definitely gives it a new perspective! I’m wondering if it is a tassel – like one you use to tie up your drapery?” Not a tassel, but you’re on the right path. Jude commented, “definitely looks very different – some kind of textile?” Ding ding ding! 😀 Katie then guessed, “looks like painted yarn” … but not painted and/or yarn. Close though! “Ooh…tablecloth fringe?” Not tablecloth fringe either. Natalie mused, “Looks like shoe laces.” Not shoe laces. “Rope?” Not rope either. Michelle commented, “Looks like a very ruffly gold sweater for Christmas!” It is ruffly material, just not in sweater form. Kim asked, “is it metallic yarn?” Not metallic yarn. Cee said, “I’m clueless this time. I though of shoestrings and that has been guessed already.” Hmmm, quite interesting to know it looks like yarn to two folks, and shoestrings to two others. Y. Prior’s perspective, “looks like carpet piling …” Not carpet piling. So what exactly was it?

What you saw was the fabric on a ribbon-type headband.
