The Revival of the Newfie Mitten

I spontaneously bought a skein of wild green hand-dyed dk weight superwash wool from Kata last Friday night, and I spent all day Saturday cruising Ravelry for a mitten pattern that would showcase it best. Just as fatigue was settling in and I was about to give up my search, it dawned on me that I had the perfect pattern at my fingertips – the flippin’ Newfie Mittens!!! Instead of using two colours, I would just use the wild green. El loves the mittens and has claimed them most willingly. That was the quickest and funnest knit ever! Just sayin’.

Oh, and as for that wool, there's no more of that wild green, but you can see Kata's other equally fabulous hand-dyed skeins in her etsy shop!

That is such a happy green! I wish Australia get cold enough in winter to wear mittens. Those look great!
