I am loving the Jurisdiction knit. It’s intuitive, lovely, the yarn is nice, so much good about it. So as I prepared to start a post for Wednesday I took the finished sleeve and the current back piece to get creative with my photograph. And noticed a horrible thing!!! See if you can figure it out.
In this photo it is very subtle, how I wish it were subtle in real life.
Need more visuals? How about this,
ETA: Or this?
Now, it’s harder to tell between the 1st and 3rd skein, but each of these skeins is marked with the same dye lot and color number. Yet all three of them are different!!
The sleeve was knit with 2 skeins that match the center skein. The back is being knit with the left skein. I have a few pieces knit up into a failed sweater with the color that matches the left skein. How have I not noticed this before now?
So what to do? Remaining calm is not an option, and that was yesterday’s missed post anyway. I have enough yarn between the remaining skeins and the failed sweater pieces to make the sweater. I think. I’m mean, I fairly sure. About 85% sure. But all that sleeve knitting! I could just carry on and then over-dye the sweater. I could just reknit the sleeve. And that actually isn’t a bad thing because I could size up the sleeves to XL to allow more room. The one knit is fine, but maybe a size up would be better. Doing nothing is not an option, I want this sweater!
