Color problems

Several years ago, DJ gave me a lot of yarn. Included was some really nice yarn in WK colors that I decided to use for the Back-to-School U-Neck Vest. I didn’t have enough so I ordered more, but didn’t pay a lot of attention to it when it came arrived. The yarn has a lot of colors in it so I thought that a different dye lot couldn’t be too bad. I got about halfway done with the vest using the original yarn and then pulled out the new yarn. Completely different! Same colorway, but it is in clear, bright DJ colors not the lovely muted fall colors that I was expecting. Fortunately I over bought the new yarn and should have enough for the whole vest and I’ll be once again left with the original yarn from DJ. Now I need to decide if I will be overdyeing the vest with a yellow/brown to tone the colors. I’ll get a picture taken and posted, I promise, but for now I thought I’d at least post something.
