Okay, you know the tune. Ready?
One of these skeins is from the wrong dyelot,
Even though they are not s’posed to be.
Can you guess which skein is from the wrong dyelot?
Just click on the picture and see!
Let’s play! Here’s how it works. Look at the closeup, and see if you can guess which skein was bought seperately from the rest. Click the pic, and see if your guess matches the skein with the label face-up. (These pics were taken at different angles, some with sunlight, some with flash. Just to make it fair to the yarn.)

Doing well? Here’s the last one:
Here’s the bigger version.
Well, that was fun. Wasn’t that fun? I tried very hard to capture the shade difference on film, but it was a little tough. They are definitely different, though (at this very moment the offending skein is sitting in the sun with its cousins on the table to my left, leering at me with its slightly different shade of sage) so we will be exchanging the yarn. A mismatched skein is not worthy of all the effort that goes into a handmade sweater. I mean, the last thing you want is for someone to come up to you and – instead of complimenting your creation – mention that the left sleeve is really more of a duck-egg than a sage green. (It’s all about the nuances.)
Fortunately, the answer here is simple. I’m going to go to Walmart, exchange the sage for some more grey heather (I ran out last night – I’m hoping that the heather will help conceal any discrepancies between the new yarn and my WIP made with last year’s purchase. Whatever.) after which I will duck into Michael’s for another skein of their sage. Voila!
Oh, and hey. You know you played the game. Tell us how you did!
