Can’t believe I fell for this mistake again.
I was nearly finished with the back of the v-neck cardigan and noticed a slight color difference between a fresh ball of yarn and the last one. I immediately scanned the piece under better lighting and sure enough, there was a noticeable change in shade farther down the knitted piece. To confirm my suspicions I pulled out the ball bands from the already used yarn. Arraugh!!!, I had just used a rogue ball of yarn from a different dye lot!
On a happier note, Jean was in town this weekend so I stopped by to get help with the last for stitches of the round neck cardigan button bands. That’s done. Now I just have to sew on 10 buttons.
Oh, how frustrating!
(Are those little “helpful” kitty feet I see at the edges of your photo?)
Glad to hear of your cardi progress!
The silver lining is: you took a great photo of a hard to photograph color. I can actually see the differences in red!
I hate it when that happens! I love the pattern though and Kim is right about taking a great picture of red.
NNNooooooooo! I was worried about doing that with my round-neck cardi because I did have one ball that was a different dye lot I used for my swatch. I was so careful about keeping it away from the other ones because…I’d done that before. I am so sorry!!! Are you going to take it out??? 😦
Besides all that, the pattern is gorgeous!
Is that Mittens I see in the photo??
Glad Jean helped you out…email me and let me know yesterday went..
Next time the Guild does mini-classes will you teach that button hole and other tips from Jean, please?
At least you caught the off-color before you knit half of the next ball, too.
OH NO!!! It’s a beautiful color, tho. And at least you caught it before you danced out the door, wearing it!
