Mitten Part II

I have now completed one thrummed mitten. Or rather, I’ve finished two, but the first was too short and I didn’t like my spacing of the thrums, so it was ripped out and reknit. This is the result:


Because I wanted black thrums, to match the rest of the set, and I didn’t want to mess around with dyeing, I’m using roving, not fleece, which results in a less fluffy looking interior:

But it’s still plenty warm and fluffy when worn. I’m almost at the thumb placement for the second mitt, so it shouldn’t be long until there’s a matched pair. Though, even with the advancing cold, I don’t know when Mark will need mittens this warm in Toronto… but we’ll see. Maybe this will be another wonderful winter, like last year, with lots of snow and real, proper winter temperatures!

Oh, and because I was bored, here’s a shot of the mitten hanging out with the fall foliage:


Back to work now!

Oh, I really like the ribbing on the mitten. I feel inspired to cast on my thrummed mitts!
