Imagine you were knitting something and you really liked it. Before you cast on, you knew you didn't really have enough yarn, but you started anyway, envisioning short sleeves. Yet as it neared completion, you wanted to finish it properly. So you looked for the same dye lot, but couldn't find any more (you've had it a while) and you ordered an extra ball you need to make the longer sleeves in the hopes that it would match... but it's not quite the same colour.
Would you knit the second sleeve from the new ball and hope it wasn't too obvious...? Or how about knitting the patterned part of both in the original yarn but the borders in the new (different) colour....? Would anyone really notice...?
