Norwegian Mittens
I knitted these from the instructions in Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop. I used Paca de Seda yarn which is alpaca and silk. They have a bit too much drape for this style of mitten. I had the exact gauge and simply followed the pattern but they are too wide for my hands.

They were fun to knit though and I'd like to make more of this style of mitten.

They're absolutely gorgeous! Awesome job. Maybe you can wear them over other mitts or gloves for those really cold days?

They look splendid, Amy. I love the colors; sorry, that they are too wide for you. I hope you can make another pair.
