V (Heart) Day and a Snag in the Clapotis –> UPDATE!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I am sharing a sky-shot tribute to Sandy that I hope you could appreciate…

And I have run into a snag while finishing the first ball (all 313 yards of it, BABY!) of my Clapotis. I never noticed until last night that the frogged yarn is more weathered than the unused ball that I used. Which means that 2/3 of the Clapotis will be softer looking than the brighter 1/3 that I knitted. Oh, boy. 🙁 At this point, I am debating on continuing on or just making another Clapotis. I really want to use the yarn, and am thinking that with enough wear and tear, the shades might not be noticible. OR, I can attempt to sun-bleach the fabric now, work on another project, and hope that the WIP lightens up enough for me to finish by the Closing Ceremonies. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: I will go on (No, not like Titanic, thank you). So 313 yards down, 626 to go. Thanks to everyone here and on Team Clapotis for your input!
