oh ya, don't take short cuts!
Craftydeb, that is really weird about a big huge chunk of yarn being off color! Did the piece end up looking cool or just too weird?

You know it was for a piece for Caron and fortunately it was on the back side so they told me not to rip it out and start over.  They were in a hurry to get it.  It was actually for the tastefully tweed ruana.

It was just weird looking in the end.  Kind of like the blotch on Jupiter... just a big blotch.  It was not a good thing.  If I had  more yarn I would have redone it that's for sure.  I have never seen anything like it and never seen it since.  I'll see if I have a picture somewhere of it.  I'm sure I took a picture and sent it to them!  Okay.  Nope.  I can't find a picture of the  blotch.

If I ever come upon it I will post it right away though!  It was just weird - it was actually plied in with the yarn - almost like oops, we dropped a bit of dark color in to the vat while it was being spun...
