Urchin Misfit on 75/25 Merino Sock
Misfits are skeins that don't quite match the colorway.
Urchin features a purple tonal base shot through with grey and violet. This skein had an unintentional bind resulting in some "reverse speckles", a band of white where the dye could not strike the yarn. These bits will knit up as a stitch or two of white.
The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that each and every skein is unique even if dyed in the same pan. If you are making a project using multiple skeins of the same colorway, alternating skeins is recommended.
