The Dye Lot is Cast

When starting a new crochet project, be sure that you have enough yarn of the same "dye lot" to complete it. Color and dye lot information is provided on the yarn label. It might be tempting to buy skeins of yarn that are the same color but not necessarily from the same dye lot. Don't do it! Subtle variations in the color may not be apparent but they will show up after you finish your project and even more so after you wash the item a few times.
