More mittens (so far, living up to the name).

Just so you don’t think all I’ve done so far is a couple of poorly knit swatches that I’m not happy with, I do actually have a pair of mittens to show you. I was going to wait, because I’m not quite done writing the pattern up, and I haven’t taken any really nice photos of them, but here’s a peek at what I’ve been up to:

 

 

I’m hoping to be done the pattern and photos and have it ready to go sometime next week, but that really all depends on the amount of face time I get with my computer.  And how many times I end up watching this week’s Doctor Who.

As for my colour conundrum of yesterday, I’ve gone ahead and ordered a couple alternate colours to try. If they don’t work out, I’ll be trying out the two colour option.  I’ll get there eventually, I promise!

So the colour palette I was using before was thusly:

They look nice together, but I can totally see the problem when I line them up like this. So I’m going to try again with these options:

It’s hard to tell from a computer screen, so I am taking a bit of a chance, but I really hope these colours work out. I think they are light enough while avoiding the Easter Egg look.

    You’ve got me seriously considering moving somewhere that has a cooler climate so I can then beg you to make me mittens. These are SO cool.

    I can pretend these are Tea Mittens, right? Because I LURVE them, and lurve the way you’ve kept the design to two colours a round. But I do NOT lurve coffee.
