The same mitten pattern as before, but this time I found out that hard way that 50g balls of different brands of merino DK are not necessarily the same length. Not even roughly the same length.This base yarn was Debbie Bliss Rialto (ball band says 105m to 50g - I suppose I should have checked this before casting on) - the James C. Brett Pure Merino DK I used before weighs in at a stonking 124m to 50g. Both yarns take the dye beautifully, but that's 19m difference in length per ball plus the Brett merino feels thicker and more sproingy then the Rialto. And it's cheaper. So no contest there then...

I love the colours and they look so warm and comfy.

They look lovely and sproingy!
