Over a year after abandoning my stranded mitten (yes, in the singular), I think I'm ready to give colorwork another shot. This time, I'll be making a pair of Endpaper Mitts. It's a semi stash-busting project, since one yarn is from the stash and one is new. I had a skein of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in teal (color 20) is leftover from my Tangled Yoke Cardigan, but nothing to go with it, so off to the yarn store I went. At first I was looking at dark and medium browns, but the woman working there suggested something lighter for more contrast. Eventually, I decided on the Silky Wool in sandstone (color 50). Perfect for the Earth element of PS3!

I made a two-sided swatch, to see how the different color combinations look.

I'm probably going to go with side 2, but I'm still debating about the color for the cuff. Which side and cuff do you think looks better?

My vote is for side 2, although I'm not sure which color I like better for the cuff.
