I have 10 balls of one dye lot and 12 of another, and I need 23 for my size. So, make the cuffs and edges in a miscellaneous dye lot (I have 4 balls in this lot, so no prob there) and alternate the other two till one runs out.
I wondered if this level of persnicketiness was called for...
Alas, yes, it was! I think the cuff is noticeably different, and I can see definite two-row stripes in the stocking stitch. The thing is, can anyone else? I don't think it'll detract from the awesomeness of the finished sweater -- after 20 cm of edge + stocking stitch, I start the diamond/ seed stitch/ cable part, and that covers the rest of the body.
We have had rather pissy weather lately. Thunderstorms, cloudy, damp, grey. But today the sun is out, and the garden has certainly benefited from all that water.
