Pat's Knitting and Quilting
August 29, 2012
I won a gorgeous skein of yarn in a monthly mini drawing in the Fiber Indie Experience Co-op. ( A great group of indie fiber artists!) This yarn was dyed by Kim from The Wacky Windmill - gorgeous fall colors on thick luscious 1 ply heavy worsted weight yarn - perfect for mittens!
I've never made thrummed mittens, but have always been very interested every time I see a pair - this seemed like a good time to try it.
Pattern: Snug by Robin Melanson from Knitting New Mittens and Gloves
Now THESE are some very warm mittens!
The cuff is thick, snug and warm too...
Next time I would be even more generous with the thrums either making them thicker or just adding more of them, but I sure do like these mitts and can't wait to see how warm they are this winter!
