I have been wanting to join the fun over here, but the road to Latvian mittens has been a slow one for me.
This is the yarn I have spun so far for my mittens. The steel blue yarn is from some delicious wool/alpaca roving I got from Jessie at A Piece of Vermont. I have more of her roving in natural on the wheel now. The grays are a blend of wool and alpaca I made on the drum carder. They will be my accent colors at the cuff.
I am thinking about using this pattern. Hopefully, I'll have enough yarn to start swatching in the next day or two. I am thinking of using the blue as the background color and the white for the pattern which is the opposite of what the book shows. Do you think that will look odd?
