Norwegian Mittens- FO

Pattern: Norwegian Mittens from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac
Yarn: Knitpicks Telemark in Icicle (2 balls) and Skyline (1 ball)
Needles: US 3

Notes: This was my first colorwork project. I really liked it, even though it took me several tries to get the first mitten going. I knit them really tight though, so they fit me perfectly instead of being of a "large" size, like EZ states in her book. I guess that was just luck though... erm... I mean, I planned it that way! The Telemark is nice, though not the softest thing I've ever used. But its so frickin' cheap, why the hell not? This project cost under $6!
