(s)Mitten!

it's early April and i have an overwhelming urge to knit intricate colourwork mittens. i blame this palette,



which has been stuck in my head for days now. yes, these will be Latvian mittens, the exact pattern of which is yet to be determined. this time i might even make it to the second mitten!

the yarn is knitpicks Palette (clockwise, from upper left) in Sunlight, Sky, Mist, White and Fog. it's hard to beat that kind of yardage and price for a quick colour fix. now to puzzle out the motif...

Yummy!!! That will be some stunning mittens. When do you think you'll cast on?

thanks! at this rate, it'll be as soon as the yarn gets here...unless i hit a snag in the planning process. choosing the right motif (or blend of motifs) will be crucial to the mittens' success.
