This will be a gift knit. No picture yet!

1/4/24 – Soooo…I reached the halfway point and joined the second skein and started the decrease half. We were watching a movie while I was working on it, so I wasn’t in good light and didn’t notice until several inches into the second half that the second skein of this yarn is SIGNIFICANTLY darker than the first, and there is a VERY noticeable line where the two come together. :slightly_frowning_face:

If it was for me, I wouldn’t care, but I don’t think I want to gift it this way.

It never occurred to me to alternate skeins to begin with. Rookie mistake for sure.

Since this isn’t a pressing gift project, I think I’m probably going to frog it and either re-start it alternating or just put the yarn back in stash to use at another time and make something else for the intended gift recipient. Sigh.

(I need to take a picture before I frog this so I can have a visual reminder of the color difference.)
