Lots of Thrummed Mittens

As it goes with knitting sometimes, you knit something and get lots of requests for more. That's for sure what happened when I posted a photo of my first attempt at thrumming mittens.

This all started when I saw a couple of people at Echoview Fiber Mill making thrummed slippers. Not long after, Echoview had a big sale where they were getting rid of some gorgeous colors of roving. I needed no other signs! I bought up what I thought was a lot of roving. Good thing I did, because I used all of it.

By the way, if you're interested in thrumming, Echoview has an awesome thrumming tutorial.


Pattern: Chop Wood Carry Water by Jill Draper (pattern free with Creativebug class)
Yarn: Columbia Minerva Knitting Worsted in Turquoise (I inherited this yarn and had it in my stash for maybe even a decade)
Roving: from Echoview Fiber Mill



This was the very first pair I made. I gave these to my friend Jessica, who lives in New Jersey and spends a lot of time outdoors. I love the color combination on these, and I really love the varied hues in the roving.




Yarn: Noro Kureyon
Roving: Echoview Fiber Mill

I inherited this yarn from my friend Daphne. It didn't have a label so I'm not sure what color it is, but the Noro yarn is very recognizable! It was fun to watch the colors change on these. I gave this pair to my friend Krista.



Yarn: Lion Brand Lion Wool Solids in Goldenrod and Reynolds Lopi in Periwinkle
Roving: from Echoview Fiber Mill

I made these for my cousin's wife, after being commissioned by my cousin. I was in such a hurry to mail these off by Christmas that I forgot to take a nicer photo! It's so fun to try out different color combos, even with the thumbs.
