I took a poll.
Apparently I am the only human being alive that can tell the difference between the two yarns in JoNo's hat...and admittedly even I can only do it in certain lights and possibly because I know where I joined the new ball in.
I am heeding the advice (*cough* commands *cough*) of my friends and giving JoNo the original hat as is.
I am letting go and moving on.
We'll see how that goes...
