Blanket from the Ashes of a Dyelot Disaster


I was going through my stash and found some pretty multi-color blue yarn that had been discontinued while I was working at the Yarn Shop in town.
The colors were beautiful and I knew that what I wanted was this sweater right here-
From a 2009 issue of Interweave Magazine.
So sweet!
So I got cooking, and after I was 10 inches into the second ball I remembered why the yarn was discontinued.
The dyelots were ridiculously out of whack from themselves.
These two yarns are the SAME DYELOT.

I was pretty bummed out, but I thought to myself "Self, just weave with it. The crazy variation won't show as much and you will still get to use that beautiful yarn."
So I loaded up my rigid heddle, which is only 20 inches wide so I had to make three panels to make a blanket, and in a week or so I had this lovely throw.
It came out just how I thought, and I love it.
