Last week I wrote about the mittens I wanted to do for NaKniMitMo 2012. However, I spent a few days afterwards wavering on my initial yarn choice. Or at least on the colors themselves. I kept staring at my hutch knowing that the perfect yarn was in there somewhere and I’m glad I second guessed. I ended up making a final decision on two of my favorite colors of Madelinetosh Tosh DK – Nebula and Charcoal.
I think these two are very fine colors. As soon as I pulled them out of my hutch I wanted to start the mittens right away. I love when that happens. Nevermind the fact that it was around 1am, on a Monday morning. Thank goodness I had the day off because I was able to get one mitten almost completely done. Although the gauge is smaller than the pattern-specified Cascade 22o, I know that the yarn will relax some after a nice soak and block.
I’m looking forward to having the second one done very shortly. No second-mitten syndrome here! :)
