I don't want anyone to think that Mystical Creation is at fault with this yarn dilemma. When I saw the difference in color between the two skeins I thought that I requested a different colorway. I had originally been dabbling between two colors (Cranberries and Mimosa) and I thought it was my mistake.

Danielle told me that the first and second skeins might be different when I requested the second skein but I thought that the purples might be darker by a shade or two and the order of the colors in the dying might be different (I have done it with two different Noro Kureyons as well as Silk Garden).

I am a recent convert to high quality fibers so I really don't know all that much about hand-dying. I just was terribly disappointed that the two dye lots were so far off. This one has a predominance of yellow and I look DREADFUL in yellow.

I love my silk yarn from Mystical Creation...it feels like butter in your hands. Much better than Noro Silk Garden. In fact, many knitters were admiring my clap when I was knitting the clap at my LYS anniversary party because everyone thought the yarn was wonderful. Sent them to Danielle!

Sorry Danielle if I offended you in any way!

Sorry to hear about your Clap problems, I have heard only good things about Mystical Creations and I know that you run that risk ordering handpainted yarns at different times. I have skeins of Koigu that were ALL THE SAME DYELOT and the are very different!!

I also wanted to tell you how GREAT your Dad's socks look in the new pic!! Well done, I'm sure he will love them!
