WIP: mitts for spring

A glimpse of something new.

Photobucket

I started some Calculation mitts with yarn leftover from my Herbivore scarf. Although the pattern calls for 50 g of fingering weight, and I only have 42 g, I'm cautiously hopeful I'll have enough. 42 is a pretty auspicious number after all.

This is the first time I've tried two-at-a-time for something that isn't socks, but I think it will be okay. The yarn is Sweet Paprika Messa di Voce in Emerald City: not actually teal, but more bright semi-solid forest green.

  2. That color, teal or forest green or emerald or whatever is just beautiful. I'm actually looking forward to your finished object!

  6. Gorgeous yarn! I find that most patterns (for me, anyway) say they need more yarn than they actually do, so I'm crossing my fingers that you have enough yarn :)

  7. I got so hypnotized by the goodness over at the Sweet Paprika site I almost forgot to come back and leave a comment! That shade of green, whatever its name, is very appealing.
