Finished object... puzzling

I have another finished object! My red socks!!!

However, do you notice something here? Look closely...

Yup. One sock is darker, the other is pinker. And the two skeins I used were from the same dye lot. WTF?!?!?!?

Claudia Hand Painted Fingering Yarn in Chocolate Cherry -- less than two skeins
Pattern: Four-Stitch Ribbing Pattern--Baby Cable Rib from
Sensational Knitted Socks
Needles: Addi Turbos Size 2.5 mm, length 100 cm (Magic Loop)
Started: April 8, 2006
Finished: August 28, 2006

I've got a third skein of this (same dye lot). I was afraid two wouldn't be enough, but I had leftover yarn from each skein. I was wondering what to do with the third skein. Looks like I'm going to have to knit a third sock and see which one it matches. I know, I'm assuming that there will be a match, and we all know what happens when we ass-u-me stuff... Then I'll frog the mismatch and maybe make a CrackBerry cozy for it. It's a plan.

Sadly, now I really can't wear these until the third sock is done. They'll show wear, and the third sock will still look different. Bummer...

Anybody out there have this same thing happen to them? What did you do???

The socks look great, too bad about the color difference. That is strange. You should probably let them know of the color difference. Doing the third sock sounds like a good idea. Good Luck!
