Thruming Along


So after nearly 2 years in the making, I have finally completed my thrum mittens! Aren't they beautiful? Thrum mittens are a unique way to knit-in pieces of roving to create bulk and warm on the inside of the mitt. Cool eh?


A lovely wool maker, Fleece Artist, in Nova Scotia, Ontario, creates these beautiful kits, with a large variety of colours. I picked mine up at a local yarn shop, but click here for links to a store near you.

I love them so much, I have another set in the works.

Those mittens are amazing! They'll be great on those cold winter days!

My stepmother made me some mittens like this when I was 11 years old. I still remember them as the nicest, fluffiest, softest, warmest mittens I've ever owned. And yours are super pretty to boot!
