Knitpicks Arrival!

Look what came in the mail for me today! My mother’s birthday is coming up, and she mentioned to my father that she wished she had another pair of fingerless mitts (why she didn’t tell me, the knitter of said mitts, this, I have no idea!) Anyway, my father passed this information on to me, and I placed an order with Knitpicks. I chose some Swish DK in Dusk to knit either the Café Au Lait mitts or Susie’s Reading Mitts.

However, since I was placing an order anyway, and Knitpicks has just come out with the gorgeous Chroma line, I also had to order some of that. I chose two skeins of the worsted weight, one in the Fossil colorway and one in Galapagos. I intended to use these to make one of the Noro Striped Scarves, but after seeing them in person, I’m not sure that the colors really go together. What do you guys think? Here's a picture of the two together:

I also ordered a skein of Midwinter. I’ll be striping this with Knitpicks Palette in either gray or purple to make a Daybreak shawl.
