I miss my boy too, AND he is the one that makes amazing chocolate chip cookies that I really want right now.  Lets be lonely and cookieless together.

Remember: mistakes add character.  They're like scars, but with less interesting stories about battling beds, running into walls, or falling in the mud (yes, I have scars from all of these).

this is my first post... i normally just lurk, but i had to come out of lurkdome just to say that you could alternate rows between the two dyelots.

It would require ripping the whole thing and starting again, but if it bugs you so much that you're not going to wear it, it might be worth it.

So what you'd do is separate them back into two balls then do two rows (up, turn, back) then start with the second ball (up, turn, back) then pick up the first strand and continue on. you'll have a slight striped affect but at least the whole scarf would look the same...... just an idea anyway Smiley

Boys are stupid.  Cookies are delicious.  I hate dye lots, too.

From the pictures, it looks cute, though, even if it doesn't match.

Maybe you should make HIM make you a batch of cookies, since he ate all of yours.  That seems fair.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

I like Curly_Toot's idea.  But if you don't want to redo the whole thing, then just don't sweat it.  Nobody (except you) is going to notice the mismatched dye lots.  People will be blinded by the cuteness of the scarf.  As for feeling fat because people are calling the new Brittney fat...  I'm not a fan, but, IMO people wouldn't call her fat if she wasn't a Hollywood train wreck.  In other words:  Make your bro buy you some cookies and DON'T feel guilty eating them!

i can sympathize with you because i have a very little bit left to go on a gorgeous christening gown and even though it's just a plain old dk weight white yarn that i could find in 50 different brands, not one store in town has one that's even close to the right color.  it's white - how hard can it be!  stupid dye lots.
and, being pregnant, i'm soooo with you on the cookie thing.  every time i hear about food i want it, whatever it is.  so i read your post and remembered that i had left a little debbie marshmallow pie (i know, not a cookie - but chocolate, and close enough) in the kitchen here at work the other day.  i was so excited until i looked over and saw my 85 lb (may be a slight exxageration, but not by much!) coworker eating it and complaining about how fat she is.
stupid nonpregnant coworkers.

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)

Yarn keeps me sane(ish)

Awww... That's so annoying.

I knitted a scarf for a friend and the last skein of yarn was much duller than the other two. The thing that really ticked me off what that they were the same dye lot, and still different Sad It didn't show much, just enough for me to notice. She still liked it so I'm happy about that at least.

It's a very pretty scarf, just treat it as a design feature, not a flaw.

I thought it was shadow!

Maybe your scarf should meet my far more obviously mis-matched blanket. Who knew a blanket required more than 150g worth of yarn? (All 10 balls are different dye lots)

I also agree with 'I want cookies' (despite just eating some) and boys are stupid. Mine is in Egypt without phone credit.

It is a very pretty scarf.  I was going to suggest what Curly_Toot suggested if you're really unhappy with it.  

And I think Britney's body is still fabulous, so lucky you!

Interested in personal swaps!

It's a neat scarf regardless of colour.

Another fix-up option is to try leaving the darker side in the sun for a long period of time, and it may lighten.
