I've been knitting this weekend and have found myself deeply in denial over the sleeves to my pink sweater. Deeply in denial. From wrist to sleeve cap, I've been telling myself there was plenty of yarn left to finish the job. This would have been the truth if I suddenly lost about 3 inches of arm length. Unfortunately, my body has more of a gorilla type arm with knuckles almost dragging the ground. I'm well into shaping the sleeve cap and have several more inches and about 50 rows to go-with maybe twenty or so yards of yarn remaining. Duh.
This morning I ran out to the yarn store and luckily found another skein of the same color number. Of course, I bought the yarn in January so the dye lot is different. To the naked eye, it looks the same. I'm so desperate to finish this project and I'm trying to talk myself out of fixing the problem the right way. What would you do? Admit you despise working with this yarn and just knit away and pray they match? Or would you do it the right way: have another cocktail and alternate rows with the new and the old yarn so if the colors are off, they'd blend and be less noticeable? So much do I hate this yarn, I'm leaning toward the first option with the fewest ends to weave.
