Pretty Yarn Day: Future Knits Edition

i bought some yarn during the eat.sleep.knit black friday sale. this was my first time ordering from them and the shipping was ridiculously fast.
Madeline Tosh Worsted
2 skeins of madelinetosh worsted in seaglass
Dream in Color Classy
3 skeins of dream in color classy in Bermuda Teal

both are soft but at first glance i think i like the tosh better. it's more tightly twisted and the colors are more subtle. it also seems just a little thinner than the classy but i think the two will work together ok. the classy is almost the exact same shade as my CPH, which is why i decided not to use it for a sweater. i would've bought more of the green madtosh if it had been in stock.

we got our first snow this morning--much later than usual, and already melting. however, i can't deny that winter is on the way. i have a much longer walk now to work, so warm winter accessories are a must. i just bought the patterns for the end of may hat and mittens. i think i will use some handspun for the linings and make them full size for maximum warmth and softness.

i can't wait until the workday has ended so i can go home and cast-on.
