the mitten thrumming is so interesting to me. i might give that a go. :)
It really is fun, and I can't wait to try it with something other than neutral colors!
I really want to try this, you have inspired me, thank you.
Oh, I haven't made thrummed mittens in ages. There's nothing to top them for warmth. Sounds like lots of creativity brewing at your place!
Glad to hear, from experience, that they're warm and toasty. Sometimes hand knit mittens can be a little drafty, so I'm hoping these will block out the cold and snow. :)
Do you know of a good tutorial or good step by step instructions for thrumming? I would love to try it out.
I used a basic knitting pattern and then referred to these tutorials on how to make the thrumms.http://www.helloyarn.com/how-i-thrum/http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/thrumfaq.html
Oh I wish I'd known about thrummed mittens before casting on my father-in-laws christmas present. I'm currently 'suck' for a method for lining them to make them warmer, and thrumming would have been just perfect!
I bet you could use duplicate stitch and add your thrumms in at the end, instead of knitting them in. hmmm... I wonder if that would be faster? I may actually try that next time!
Sure enough, afterthought thrumms. http://www.newedist.com/?tag=duplicate-stitch
