This is not related to a current project, but it seemed like a pretty clear indication of the importance of dye lot, so I thought I’d share. The background piece is the Broken Rib Tank I made back in 2009, and the piece on top is an “Ugh” project I recently ripped out and we will not speak of. Both are the exact same brand and line of commercially available yarn – same weight, same fiber percentages, same colorway, everything. The only difference is dye lots 4 years apart. This is a prime example of why you should ALWAYS buy the whole project’s worth of yarn at once!
