Help please!

ETA: better picture.

Here's what the Koigu from the last post have begun to be:

Eunny Jang's Anemoi Mittens. Unfortunately I'm starting to feel that the colours are just too close together. It's hard to distinguish one from the other. So at this point it's either go forward or rip back to the ribbing and stripe them.

So I thought I'd ask the internet: what do you think? Is it subtle and pretty or... not?

I think it's subtle and pretty, and if you like the colors together I would keep going. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the pattern will show as much and if that's the reason for the mittens, I would rip and find colors that contrast better. Either way, I'm sure they will be lovely!

Ditto clumsyknitter - I personally *love* those colors together, but Anemoi is all about the pattern, and after all that work you might want a little more contrast so that the design really pops. Of course, only you can see what that combo looks like in real life...decisions, decisions! Good luck!
