Endpaper Mitts?

Here is the start to my Endpaper Mitts. I love both of these yarns from the Periwinkle Sheep, but I have a feeling the variegated blue yarn isn't the right choice. Not enough contrast in some places. Sometimes when I look at it, it looks okay, but otherwise...meh.

I think their ought to be more contrast if I'm going to all the trouble of doing the colorwork. Do you agree?

By the way, are any other Blogger users having trouble positioning a second photo in their posts? I used to be able to upload more than one, then just click and "drag" it into position. Now when I try that, nothing happens.

Still, one picture is better than none. In fact, I've heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Or is it ten thousand?

And speaking of words, I have joined the ranks of Those Who Tweet. You can find me here. I've even broken down and joined Ravelry, so if you're on there, you can find me there, too. No cute pseudonym, just my name.

If you'll excuse me, now I'm going to get back to banging my head against the genealogical brick wall that is my great great aunt Anna Blau of Paterson, New Jersey. She's hiding somewhere, and one of these days, I will find her!

Amy Seems their is a lack of much contrast in the yarn but its still pretty.
As to downloading pictures, I downloaded all my yard flowers pictures to my blog ,was it Tuesday and no problem.
But Bloggers won't let me drag and drop anymore. So I ended up with some pictures not in the order on my post that I Wanted . I thought it was just me maybe. Glad you posted about it.

Not having any issues with uploading and dragging Blogger pictures....

I think they will be subtle if you continue with those colors....I always hesitate to say frog it to others, but if you're not unhappy you'll hate finishing them, so.....maybe the pond is the answer.

I'm LizzieK8 on Twitter, too. Looking forward to tweets while you're on vacation!

I like it very much. But you are the one who has to be happy with the finished project.

I've been gone on vaca so not sure if I am having issues yet or not.

I am the dyer and I say that yellow needs a more powerful blue!! The knitting itself is beautiful, of course.

Have a great vacation!!
