Okay, so in one light:

Tonight, however, when I was showing the sweater to Andy, it looked more like this:
NOOOO!!!!  A cheap, mass-produced acrylic yarn had dye lot variations!!!!!!!! 

I'll admit, I have gotten very lazy about checking dye lots on big commercially produced yarns, and this stuff is TLC Wiggles which was made by Red Heart--the kings of the mass produced yarn!  I don't imagine ANYTHING in their yarn process is done by humans--how does this still have dye lots?

Sigh.......I'm going to send the sweater as a gift anyway and just hope they don't notice.   If they notice, I'm going to blame it on all the nifty drugs.  Or age--does 41 count as old enough to be "slightly batty" to those in their 20s?  Would it help if we got another cat?

If they ask about it, tell them the sweater is *supposed* to be that way! 41 may see old to twenty-somethings, but you are still a baby in my book.

As the one who was offered a seat in a disco at the ripe age of 25, I think you might well get away with the "slightly batty" approach. I would recommend the "it's not a bug, it's a feature" route, though. Just tell them it's a design feature to make their child easily recognizable in a crowd. You might have to mix up dye lots on purpose in the future but that's a small price to pay. :-))
