I am also making the girls each a pair of Thrummed Mittens. My first time for this. I bought some lovely roving from Poppy Flower Fibers . The colors are gorgeous and really much too pretty to be hidden inside mittens, but I am not a spinner ...yet, so this lovely BFL roving is reduced to be used for thrums. It sure is time consuming making all the thrums.
The mittens look so funny because they are so fluffy and fat from the roving, but they are so soft inside and will be incredibly warm. I was originally going to use Cashmerino for the mitten but went with some Heirloom 8 ply. I think it will hold up better.
I think that is all I have to share today. I hope everyone is having a lovely new year so far.
Oh and I ordered some square knitting needles, I will let you know how I like those when they arrive.
