I'm finished with the knitting part of my son's sweater (I'm making a raglan from a Lion Brand pattern, in 4 pieces), and I'm almost out of yarn! I probably have enough to pick up stitches around the neck and do the collar, once the sweater is assembled, but I definitely don't have enough for the seams. How important is it to use the same yarn for the seams? Could I get away with using some stash yarn of a different color? Or should I just suck it up and buy another skein of the same yarn?
Its just Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky, so its not like its some super expensive yarn or anything like that. But, its an odd color, Pumpkin, because my son is 3 and will only wear clothes that are orange or have a truck on them (if they're orange AND have a truck on them, BONUS!!) Both Joanne's and Michael's carry the yarn, but neither one ever has the right color, so I'd have to order it from Lion's website. Which means I need to wait for it to be delivered, plus pay shipping. Again, not a huge deal, just annoying.
Thanks! This is my first garment, so I'd like it to actually be wearable.
