I’ve been wanting to knit a pair of these mittens ever since seeing Veronique‘s thrums. The project also fit a few requirements I had in mind when the desire to start something new hit Saturday morning. Small, practical, warm, uses yarn (and roving!) from stash, knit in stockinette stitch. Okay, it could have been anything…thrummed hat, thrummed socks… 🙂 I imagine I’ll get lots of use out of these and they were a blast to knit. I can’t help but laugh when I look at them –neat little stitches on the outside and crazy wooly roving on the inside!
