    Thrummed Mittens

    Thrummed Mittens, started August 27, 2007, finished October 8, 2007
    Pattern: Thrummed Mittens Interweave Knits Winter 2006 by Jennifer L. Appleby
    Yarn: 1 skein – Naturally Naturelle 10ply (100g/186yds – 157 – aran/worsted) and alpaca/correidale rovings
    Needles: #4/3.5mm and #6/4.0mm DPNs
    Modifcations: Needle sizes changes, thrums knit tbl as advised by the Yarn Harlot
    Cost of Project: $5 yarn + $6 rovings = $11
    Would I knit it again? Maybe, but with pure wool because the alpaca was fuzzy. I also miss having a thumb gusset.

    Warmth and Fluff

    Pattern Notes and Comments: I became sick not too long after starting this project which is why the first mitten took me a month to make while the second one took only about a week. The second mitten is a little longer and a little less than dense than the first one because my thrums for the first one were thicker. I made the Child’s size which makes them quite snug because I also went down needle sizes. The yarn was on clearance, and it’s 100% pure NZ wool. It’s nice, and I think there’s a tiny bit more lanolin in it than other pure wools I’ve used. The rovings I bought were fuzzy. I hope they felt when I start wearing them in the winter.
