Dang, I hate it when I do that!

One of the things I harp about constantly around here is paying attention to details. None of the work we do is terribly difficult, but there are a billion little details that can totally derail things if we don't pay attention to them.

Case in point:

1/2 blue + 1/4 green is NOT equal to 1/2 blue + 1/4 grey.

Two little letters, two completely different colors.

To add insult to injury, we made not one, not two, but three dyelots of the colorway with the wrong color.

And who would be the moron that didn't double check? That thought something looked a bit off but didn't take the time to walk ten feet and make sure? Ummmm, that would be me.

Whew! At least I'm pretty sure I won't fire me!

So, you didn't accidentally invent a new colorway? Sounds like it could be the color of a battleship or a stormy afternoon. You may have to give yourself a promotion for your accidental genius.

No worries, these things happen. I'm just wondering what you'll be doing with all that homeless unwanted colorway yarn....

Yes, I think you should let us see this hideous mistake and whether we can help you with it.
