I Need Your Help

I need help deciding which of the unmatching pinks match the vest best (the yarn is on top of the vest) or would suit my vest the best. To refresh memories, I'll be knitting the Hermione mittens (will I have them finished in time for the opening of The Goblet of Fire??).
This is the first candidate...hand dyed with strawberry Kool-Aid.










Contestant #2, hand dyed with pink lemonade Kool-Aid.










And contestant #3, Merino Style yarn from Knit Picks...the closest retail match I could find.










So what yarn should I knit mittens with 1, 2 or 3?

As for a "match" I would say #3.
But I do like the contrast of #1.

I'm with novaks8, I like the contrast of #1. #3 might be a bit too matchy matchy.

I'm always all about the contrast, too.

I am with the majority here. I like the contrast of #1, but if you want to match exactly, #3 would be just fine.

I'd choose #1 first, #3 second.

I like the coordination of #2 the best but if you want the exact match go for #3. Personally I like #2 the best....

I thought #2 looked good but #3 is the best match.
