I ran out of yarn as I got to the ribbed section. I set it down for a year and picked it back up again and my husband said - can’t you just buy another ball of that yarn??

It hadn’t occurred to me because it was hand dyed. But, I had heard that Ms Babbs is pretty consistent, so I went out on a limb and bought it. It turned out very close. The untrained eye will never see the difference. I can see it, but it is so subtle that it works for me. Plus it happened during the very beginning of the ribbed section, so that helps hide the line too.

All in all I like it. I feel it looks a little granny, but it is so soft and warm. Worn carefully, it won’t be too granny :)
