So I made a list of things I wanted to knit for Christmas gifts last week. All are relatively small projects with a couple pairs of mittens and a hat thrown in for good measure.
One of these items is a pair of thrummed mittens. I have always marveled at these and decided to take the plunge.
I raided the fiber stash and came up with a poorly blended merino/silk batt I acquired back when I wasn’t sure what was good or bad in batts. I figured I could pick around the not blended parts and it would work out just fine.
I decided to use the Yarn Harlot’s pattern for thrummed mittens. It’s buried in some blog posts of hers but can be found on Ravelry.
I can’t believe how addicting it is to make the thrums!
I think this will be a quick knit as it is very potato chip-like. The thrums are so fluffy and warm!
I think the recipient will really love these!
Until next time…
