Dye lot lies

This yarn was bought years ago. I mean years like I was potty training years ago (not counting MJ of course). I knew about dye lots and always made sure that they always matched. Today I am less fanatic about it. Well I started this project about 4 years ago and while I just finished it and was getting ready to take pictures I notice this very distinct line. Yep it is right where I changed yarn balls. It seems two balls were different even though there labels were the is much more noticeable in real life btw.

New travel project

The Lonely Tree Shawl is done. It just needs to be blocked but with it being so humid it would take forever to dry so it's waiting for now. The new project is socks. They might turn into a gift so hence the sepia picture. I am using Socks That Rock heavyweight and the micro monkey chart. Basically making up the pattern as I knit
