Thrumming Along

I finished the second thrummed mitt — it looks just like the picture below, thank goodness. My speed in finishing is in large part due to the heroic efforts of my husband, who sat next to me on the couch watching a James Bond movie and making thrums for me much of last night and tonight. It really sped the knitting up, since making the thrums is a somewhat time-consuming task that makes me stop knitting (gasp!) for minutes at a time. Isn’t he a sweetie? Now that’s a supportive knit-husband!

The house is almost ready for guests; we spent the day shopping, mostly for food and wine and such. The weather (-20C, -30C with windchill) and a light snowstorm this evening are helping with the Christmas mood. Posting will probably not be very frequent this week, since the festivities will be revving up for real tomorrow, but I’ll try to drop by at least once before Christmas. Have a great week, everyone!
