I used Jamieson & Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight wool which is a lovely Shetland yarn traditionally used for fair isle work. I decided on a bright magenta with bright white contrast for a cheery design. I have the complete collection of Jamieson & Smith shade cards because I like to see the colours in person before I order. So it's fun to look at different combinations on the cards for colourwork.
I used yarn colour 52 which is a bright magenta. It sometimes appears red in photos, but you can see how it compares to 93 and 1403.
I really enjoyed making these mittens. It's fun to see the design emerge. I also find that knitting colour work is not painful on my wrist like other knitting is. So it's a bonus for me!
If you're having a cold winter too, stay warm, and I wish you a cozy season. If you're having balmy or summer weather well then lucky you!
