What yarn did you pick out?

Hi, fellow Mystery Mitten Knitters!

What are ya'll using for yarn? From my stash I really have only 100% wool (plus some 100% acrylic, but I don't really want to use that.) Is anyone else using all wool? What color(s) are you using?

I have a really bright yellow yarn that I might use. I'm tempted to dye some of it into variegated colors for use somehow (but it's still a mystery.)

Looking forward to starting--this will be my first mystery KAL ever (and I'm going to try to do it right without waiting to see pics at the end. :)

Maybe I'll go dye yarn now....

I hate to say too much, since I don't want to influence anyone's decision, but I will say that I'll be working two pairs of mittens concurrently (actually, I have them almost finished so I have photos at each stage...)

One pair is a 50/50 wool/alpaca blend in a medium color shade. The other pair is the "two colored" version and uses some craft store wool in a dark varigated mix and some leftover "Peace Fleece" from another project.
