Beginning of an Onion/Indigo Dyed Mitten

You could say I'm not one to let grass-green yarn grow under my feet.

Wish I'd spun the yarn a touch fatter since the fit of the mitten cuff is a little tight on me.  Fortunately, this mitten doesn't need to fit me and most women have smaller hands than I do.  The other day I tried on a friend's Chrysanthemum mitten and found it snug.  Colourwork doesn't stretch like stockinette.  I am either going to have to guess where to end the tip of this mitten or borrow someone's hand to check the fit.

I am apprehensive over whether there's enough yardage for complete mittens in the two wee skeins.  I've done fingerless mitts before but not full mittens.
