Heldigvis var der endnu et af de lysere blåog et mere af de blåere tilbage. Uglemor vandt det lysere op og håbede på at det var nok. Nej det var det naturligvis ikke. Så i dag vil verden se Uglemor stå i garnbunken og kigge på banderoler for at finde et nøgle, der ligner.

MotherOwl has always been smirking inside when people in the yarn shop were very careful always to select yarn from the same dye lot. She thought that there was no visible difference - none that she was able to see at least. And MotherOwl takes pride in her ability at colour recognition.
But yesterday MotherOwl wound the shuttle anew, using third of the last balls of yarn for the blue weave, and began weaving anew. Now what, it looked all wrong. The new yarn, one of two from another shop, was much bluer than all the previous. MotherOwl emptied the waste paper basket, found the labels and compared. The colour code was the same, but not the dye lot! And my were they different. The last two balls were one of each. MotherOwl wound the not-so-blue on another shuttle, hoping it would be enough, leaving the two bluer skeins for something else. But of course it was not so. One more skein will be needed to finish the blue weave.
Today the world will see MotherOwl, label in hand, going through mountains of yarn trying to find one more not-so-blue ball of yarn.
