I have another dilemma that needs your assistance! I want to cast on my Leafy Fingerless Gloves as soon as I can, because ideally I want them finished and ready to wear by the 18th November. I will be at our Winter Event that weekend, you see, and it is likely to be very cold! My posh lace fingerless gloves are not likely to be warm enough.
Thanks to the genius that is the UK RAK group on Ravelry, and the kindness of Lisa Jane at Yarnsville, I have the 2.25mm DPNs I need for them. I just need to choose a colour and I can get started.

I don't want to knit them in black, because I don't particularly like working in black at the best of times, and with tiny needles and a first go at DPNs, I don't think it's a great idea. However, they need to be a fairly neutral/natural colour, if I'm to get away with them as in character costume pieces.
I will be using Knit Picks Palette from Great British Yarns. I've narrowed the choice down to four. (images taken from the GBY website).
So what do you think? Let me know which you prefer, and hopefully by the weekend there'll be a unanimous verdict and I can order the yarn.
