Please help! I need opinions about my color combinations. The Manos is going to be a fisherman's rib hat. No help needed there, unless you have a beautiful slouchy free pattern alternative. The color is a bit more pale green in real life. It's a beautiful thing.

Of the smaller skeins, I don't know which colors to combine for Endpaper Mitts. I'm going to make two more pairs, or maybe slightly tweak the design pattern, but I can't decide on the color combos. I like them in every possibility. Right now I'm leaning towards the pale mustard with the tan and the blue with the charcoal. Please provide feedback.

This yarn is going to be the Deep V Argyle Vest by Eunny Jang. I love the feel and shine of this yarn. I'm not a great photographer, but trust me, it's gorgeous. I've been on a yellow kick lately. Can't get enough of it.

This Araucania sock yarn nearly made me go out of my mind winding it. Somehow I ended up with FOUR ends. I nearly threw a fit. I love my new swift and winder, but when I was working on the rust color and trying to keep it untangled I yelled at Drew when he tried to talk to me.

This will most likely be the February Lady sweater, unless I decide to go with the other color above for Feb Lady.

This will be two pairs of striped socks. All Shibui yarn. I'm going with a variegated and pale blue for one pair. I hope it turns out just crazy enough. I'm not sure about that teal and green on the other pair. I'm kind of regretting not just sticking with the green color at this point, but then again, it could be really fun in the end. I think narrower stripes for the green/teal combo and thicker ones for the blue/variegated combo to show off the variegation.

Project pics still to come, probably tomorrow. This is a very post heavy day, but I've been away and I don't usually purchase this much yarn at once.
