Too many pinks

I knitted a pink washcloth this week with a flamingo pattern.   I thought it would be fun to send it to a Florida friend.    But it turned out that the ball of yarn I chose was just a little too scant.   No worries, I had lots more pink yarn in my basket, so I just added some in to finish my project.    I thought it was all from the same skein and I didn't notice any difference when I was knitting,  but when the cloth was finished, it became obvious that I had used two different yarns.  You can see in the photo that a small part of the upper portion is a different color than the bottom.  I am not that good a knitter so it's hard for me to look at this as anything except a minor major bummer!   Oh well, I guess I can always use another dust rag!

I am sure your friend would love it!
You can't have too many pinks, especially when you knit a flamingo!

You may not think you're much of a knitter, but it looks great to me!
