Help me make up my mind!!

Okay, here’s the scoop.  I have decided that I absolutely must have a felted door mitten for the winter season.  I’ve liked this project since it came in and now that we have the Shepherd’s Wool I can’t stop thinking about it.  I pull in my driveway and I picture it on my door… I dream about it… I must have it.  So, what’s the problem?  I cannot decide on a color!  I’ll walk out and pick up the skeins and squeeze them; bury my nose and inhale (they all smell the same, in case you’re wondering); turn them over in my hands. But still, no decision.  Those of you who know me know how anal I can be so what comes next will probably surprise you because….

This is where you all come in.  I have narrowed it down to three colors (Hunter Green, Garnet, and Royal Blue- see below, but note that the colors are a bit darker and deeper than what you will see) and I will let all of you pick for me.  Here’s what you do: post a comment telling me which color you like best.  I will go with the color that gets the most votes and then post the finished project here.   The nominees for Felted Door Mitten are:
Hunter Green 11 Garnet Blue 

A bit of background:  My house is buttercream yellow with an oak front door.  I have a white porch and no shutters or anything else that may argue with the mitten color. 

So, there you have it.  Post a comment and let’s get the ball rolling.  Pun intended.

  1. I think the garnet color would be perfect. To me it just says winter and the holidays. (especially Christmas and Valentine’s Day). If I were to make one, that is what I would choose to go with my buttercream yellow house.

  2. I see your problem. I do have a personal partiality to blue with yellow. I even have a kitchen that colorway!! I think all would be quite lovely though. Make 3 so you can change at will! Ha!

  3. Susan, you sound just like me! I’m always in a quandary when choosing a yarn color! This is a great idea! I vote for green because it’s the color I miss most when summer leaves us. Brown grass, leafless trees, dirty snow…yuck!

  4. I will be honest and say the first color that popped into my head was “green” because I thought Lea-Ann was the author of the blog, but then I read your name Susan and now my opinion has changed. I like yellow for houses but what to add to that for your darkish door? I am not overly fond of yellow and red/garnet together so I must rule that combo out, so green or royal blue? Green or Royal Blue? The felting process may, not quite sure yet as I have not felted Shepherd’s wool yet, mute the brightness of either color but thinking of you and seeing you in the shop I think I will go with the Royal Blue. This is a gut pick so take it for what it is worth.

  5. I have to vote for Green. I love buttercream yellow with green and it also makes me think of the holidays.. I would love to see this pattern also..
