Dyeing to Finish

I'm getting near the end of the BSJ, so it's really apparent how it's shaping up:

The problem is that I'm at the end of the original yarn, so I had to dye a bit more up to be able to finish it. Of course, it's pretty much impossible to make handspun match, especially if I didn't do the first batch and have no notes on it or even have any of the exact same yarn. What I ended up with is a reasonably close hue, though, and shouldn't clash with the original (though it'll look different).

Beautiful work. I may be

Beautiful work. I may be assuming (since your profile says you live on an alpaca farm), but is it alpaca? I can't wait until I've really learned the basics and I'm at a skill level where I will allow myself to work with better fibers. I'm really in awe of the coloring, you're really talented.
