Thrum-roll Please January 14, 2018

So yeah, I made another pair of thrummed mittens.  I bought a new coat and needed some mittens that matched them better than my old ones.  I also wanted to make a few changes to how I made the mittens to make them work better for me.

The first pair that I made a few years ago were too short, both for the length of my hand and the wrist.  I was perpetually getting icy wrists and cold fingertips.  So I made this pair longer in both directions.

I also added neon yellow.

The mitten on the right is turned inside-out so that you can see the safety-yellow thrums. The mitten on the left is how it will look on my hands.

The roving is from Yarn Geek Fibers and is 22 micron Polwarth. The yarn is from Fiber Curio and Sundries and is and 80/20 Corriedale/Tencel DK weight that I held double to make it thicker (I wanted these puppies to be really warm!)

If you are looking for a thrummed mitten pattern, there are a number of them online for free.  These were sort-of Frankenknit using the parts of several patterns that I liked various aspects of.
