The more I look at the pictures I took of the Handsome Mittens, the more I think that I should have knit either striped thumbs or black thumbs. I now find the green is too bright and catch the eye way to much.

If the mittens were for you to wear, which would you prefer:
  1. Green thumbs
  2. Black thumbs
  3. Striped thumbs

Would striped thumbs be too much? Wouldn't black thumbs give them a more casual look?

I know this is going to drive me crazy all week ;-) Why didn't I think of it before?

Have a great week!

Hmmm. I vote for a striped thumb! My second choice would be a black thumb, but if they were for me- I'd prefer the stripe. They are very cute!!

I never noticed it before but now that you mention it...I think black would be nice to match the cuffs.

I don't think the green looks bad at all. But I would suggest the black - simply because the thumb is always the first spot on my mittens to end getting some dark spot of dirt on them. If they're already black it wouldn't be as big of a deal!

Of course then you'd probably end up touching something white....

They're fine as is! Black is more practical, of course. But the green is more subtle and quite pleasing. I say leave'em alone and move on to your next project.

i seriously think they would look great with any color thumb!

I think black would be lovely (to match the cuffs), but they are just as pretty the way you made them :)
