thrummy thrum thrum

they are finally done! yeah! this was a project that i learned alot on
after i ripped apart the first mitt there was no regrets though
when i started thrumming, i was kind of flying by the seat of my pants
i didn't really know what i was doing, plus i hadn't knit mitts before
it landed up the first mitt was too small and bulky
so i reworked the whole pile of thrums from one mitt (which took 3 hours...sigh!)
and in the end they almost completed two mittens!

i am thrilled with the way they turned out
they have been on their maiden voyage today
and performed their job beautifully
i have already been asked if i would commission a pair
this ends any projects for me for a while
i have a few people that i need to get busy creating for
some of you know who you are!
this weekend i want to start on a scrappy quilt for our violin teacher
and my needles already have their eyes on another project

They look fantastic! I'd love to have a go at mittens, but we don't really get cold enough here in Sydney for them :)

Thrumming has always looked fun to me...I need to get my needles moving-I have two half finished projects. The pattern for the bag is in Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing book. I got a copy from the library!!

Great mittens! Love the little stripes. They look so warm and cozy.

Wow, these are super cute! I'm not ready to graduate to mittens yet, but maybe next year. I love the color too. Yummy!

these are so cute! I love the colors that you chose. They must keep your fingers so toasty!
