Mitten Monday!

My Narwhal Mittens have been done for several weeks - they turned out so well! I used Lhasa Wilderness from Bijou Basin Ranch - I love the way the hand-dyed goldenrod looks agains the natural brown color. They are sooooo incredibly soft, too - the yak/bamboo blend is nothing short of heavenly. These will be my extra-warm mittens of choice this winter - yak fiber is very warm and insulating, plus the colorwork provides a thicker fabric, all the better to keep my hands toasty in the sub-zero winter months.

Pattern: Narwhal Mittens by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Lhasa Wilderness in Goldenrod and Natural Brown
Needles: Knitter's Pride US #3 Dreamz DPNs
Modifications: No inner lining....I like to live dangerously.
