First, the good news: I was finally able to track down a ball of the discontinued slate grey hempathy for my Chance of showers cardigan.
Now for the bad news:
Because of the different dye lots, the colors do not even come close to matching. What I have been knitting with is a pretty blue grey. The new ball is a muddy dull grey. Not very noticeable in the above picture, but it kind of looks like I spilled coffee on the collar. So now I am waiting for a shipment of fiber reactive dye to come in, along with soda ash fixer and textile detergent. Because according to the experts, I need all of these things to dye my grey sweater....grey. Oy.
Hope that your current projects are causing you less headaches than mine. Here is something that is making me happy, though.
I finished my first skein of handspun! It is extremely wonky but I love it! It is not going to stay in the skein for long, because I have plans for this one. 'Cause the whole point of making your own yarn is to knit something with it, right?
