I always have a hard time alternating balls when knitting with a hand dyed yarn particularly on a cardigan. If you do it at a seem or front band, one side is always thicker than the other becuase of carrying the yarn up to the next rows.... SO I thought about making it part of the "design" I decided to switch yarns in the middle back and knit the stitch with both yarns regardless of whether I`m switching balls in reverse stockinet. Its looking pretty darn good! Just thought I would share my idea and see what you guys thought of it

Like adding a texture? Never thought about THAT, but I will now. I like to knit in the round-it`s a lot easier to swap skeins that way.
