Pattern: Thrummed Mittens by Yarn Forward
Needles: US4 (ribbing), US7 (body)
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted
Thrums: Merino, part of a gigantic ball I got from The Fiber Studio when I bought my spinning wheel last year.
I'm never thrumming anything ever again. Probably. I don't want to say "never" but... Yeah, I'm pretty sure "never". None of it was fun or relaxing or any other reason I like to knit.
The merino thrums are in PILL STAGE 1- FUZZING
I've thought about taking my sweater stone to the outside of these mittens, but that's insane, right? It's only going to pull/snag the merino fibers more.
But... So the mittens aren't aesthetically pleasing (to me). How to they feel? Slip you hand in...
I brought them to knitting Tuesday night and had everyone try them on. The best part was seeing all their faces go slack once they pulled them on, like they were sinking into a hot bubble bath. Aaahhhhh... They are soft.

Now that the box I was using for thums is empty:
And bear in mind that we all sound crazy-stupid the closer we get to cats.
