Over the weekend, I began my preparations to make the Warm in Here Thrummed Mittens from Marly Bird's Mittens & Gloves Galore class on Craftsy (you can read my full class review here). This has been in my queue for a while now, and I have to say there have been many days I've wished for thrummed mittens, including last Friday when it was blustery and snowing here in Chicago!
When I worked at Lorna's Laces, I dyed a bunch of Wooltop in various colors to use in needle felting projects...and since they never really happened, I thought this would be the perfect way to put them to good use. Plus, they happen to look pretty good with the yarn I picked out, some pretty multicolored yarn from Knit One Crochet Too.
If you don't happen to have any fiber in your stash that would be suitable for thrumming, you're in luck: Craftsy put together a handy little kit using hand-dyed fiber and yarn from Lorna's Laces (shown at right) - naturally, it's a pretty sweet deal, too!
