Another Colour Conundrum
I bought a whole packet of yarn so that I would have enough matching yarn to complete my cardigan. But the ball at the top looks quite different to the ball at the bottom. Yes, it has the same dye lot number. I thought that the orange would just be inside the ball, but I 'rummaged' inside the ball and it is only in the very middle that any orange appears. And there's a stretch of darkest green that is not right at all. I'll leave the ball for now and hope that I don't need it. Worst case scenario, I'll use it for bands and collar. Random dyeing is all very well, but there should be some degree of consistency!
