Knitting with hand dyed yarns: as each skein will vary slightly in colour, we recommend that if working with multiple skeins in the same colour way that you work two skeins at the same time. ie working one or two rows/rounds with one skein, then swapping to the other. This will reduce the chance of obvious pooling of colour.
