What if...

It is allergy season over here and boy do I get it bad. Though I am wondering is it so bad that I am seeing things?

Do you see what I am seeing?

It is very subtle, but it is really bothering me.

Both socks were knit using yarn from the same dye lot, but the shades are very different. It is like one of the skeins were left in the sun and faded as a result.

I know that when I am wearing the socks that you will not be able to tell becasue there will be shoes on, but what if I was making a sweater or something that used mutiple skeins of this yarn. Would each skein be a different shade?

I guess I should just be glad that is not the case and wear them hoping no one will notice.

That is something that would annoy me deeply on a theoretical level. They're the same dye lot, they should be the same! Your point about a sweater is dead-on. But, (you knew the but was coming, right?) now that the socks are knit, try to let it go. You are the only one who will ever notice the difference. I didn't notice the difference in the pictures until you'd mentioned it. I did however notice how well matched the stripes are! The socks are beautiful. Wear them with pride.
