I have to say this one was Iceland inspired - I never saw a sweater with as much color work in the body as this one but I wanted to practice with the designs. The sweater reminds me of fall leaves in the yard. I also ran out of the dark brown before finishing the sweater so I bought some more (three years later). You can definitely see an example of how different dye lots can be. I tried to minimize any problem by using the new skein in the yoke and by dividing the two colors by at least one row of the tan. It works okay. In some light there's no difference, but in other light you can definitely see it. The yarn is your basic Paton's Classic Wool. I'm a big fan of it. I'm working an adult sized sweater now with some pretty bulky wool I bought in Iceland. Working it one size 11 needles at 3 stitches per inch. I have to say, even though it's knitting up quickly, I much prefer less bulky yarns and working on size 6, 7, or 8.
