My first Norwegian Mitten

I finished the first one! I am amazed that it came out so well. I have dabbled in fair isle techniques but I hadn't made mittens like this before. I am very pleased with it.

It needs to be blocked yet. And of course I have to try to knit a second one that looks enough like this one to make a pair! As my DH is fond of saying, "It is easy to make one of something alike."
