Which brings me to the "funny" part of the story. I mentioned how lovely the colour is. It's blue, with pink. Halfway down the chest I joined a second ball. 5 inches of knitting later I realised that the next ball of wool is blue, with less pink. The neck band, knitted from the third ball of wool looks like it matches both of them.
It's hard to show in a photo. In some lights the difference is negligible, and in others it's obvious.
Here it is on.
I have three options:
1) Match the sleeves to the body and continue on.
2) Rip it back, and work the whole thing alternating balls of wool. (I know I won't do this, because I've already knit it and the comedy festival is more than half way through and this is really, really mindless knitting)
3) Burn it with fire.
