Mitten Update

I tweaked the chart for the mitten I'm working on, and I think I've hit on a more balanced colourwork scheme:

 unblocked colourwork knit on dpns... always looks blegh.

I only have a few more days to finish the mittens for the KAL- I think a more realistic aim is to finish one mitt! I noticed I want to make a slight change in the thumb gusset chart, so I want to fix that before I knit the second one.  I'm really liking the colour combinations, I've been wanting to inject more brights into my winter accessories, since I often go for a black or grey coat and let's face it- everything pretty much goes with black and grey. And these colours would make a basic winter coat something so much more interesting, don't you think?

Looks lovely! I can't get over this color scheme - it's the perfect mix of wintery white and color.

Very cute color scheme! It will definitely pop next to a dark winter coat.

You're so right, winter accessories should always be bright and cheerful to compensate for all the brown, grey and black we wear! Unless you're teenage Tanis and your winter coat is hot pink (with a faux fur collar!)... then maybe it's safe to tone down the accessories.

Winter accessories are an excellent spot for brights, especially if you've gotten stuck with a boring black coat. Your mitten is looking great so far!
