While I haven't used that specific brand of "no dye lot" yarn, yes, I've had that happen too...it's very discouraging. I try really hard to make sure I buy enough yarn for the project at the same store on the same day, and I try to examine the skeins as best as I can under direct lighting if possible. The "no dye lot" yarns have a lot of variation between them I've noticed, even looking at them on the shelf. Hopefully the variations in the finished sweater won't be too noticeable, and maybe after a few washings they'll even out.
