Attention Deficit Knitting Disorder (ADKD) Strikes Again
Hi. I'm usually just a lurker-- Have you considered running a row or two of dupicate stitch to match in with the Fair Isle at the places where the lighter skein is?

I ended up added two single duplicate stitch stripes in purple to the garment, and while the color differentiation is still a little noticeable, it's completely acceptable in my humble opinion!
