Mitten Chop!

I overcame "second mitten syndrome," and I am now about a third of the way through the second one. I'm contemplating what hat I could make to match these. I like the look of Ysolda's Gretel. This is the problem with knitting mittens--I always think they require a matching hat, which means buying more yarn! But Fabric Place is having a sale on Cascade 220, so maybe I can justify breaking my yarn diet....

I used to think that matching hat and mitten sets were no good, but after spending a winter with a totally mismatched hat/scarf/mitten combo I'm starting to think you're right...

Your mittens look great! I am SO on board with matching hat/mitten sets. I like a matching scarf as well. I'm very matchy-matchy! ;)
