Okay, so in one light:
Tonight, however, when I was showing the sweater to Andy, it looked more like this:
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?
