Choose your own color -- and a giveaway!

Do you remember a couple of posts ago that I mentioned the comment from a woman on Ravelry about the shape of my "Sweet Little Mittens".  Well, I agree with her, that the shape isn't as nice as it could be.  As I mentioned, I rather like the rounded shape more.  So, I am going to redesign the pattern in the rounded shape and offer both of them, so that buyers can choose the one they like most.  They will both have the cute crocheted "button" on them.  I am writing the pattern in Valley Yarns Superwash DK.  It is so soft and nice!  I've made a pair of mittens in a dusty light purple and have not yet made the buttons.  I took some pictures of some colors of yarn next to the mittens and want to take a vote. 

The choices are
1) teal
2)mint green (color doesn't look quite right in the pic..sorry...I did my best with the camera)
4)light blue

Leave me a comment please with your choice for the buttons (or anything else nice you want to say!).  One week from today Oct 28th, I will draw a winner from those who have left comments.  That winner will get a free copy of the new mitten pattern as soon as it's done, and one other pattern of their choice from my etsy shop  Good luck!

Happy crafting!

April :)
