The Queue and Thrumming January 24, 2012

I’m a little slow on the uptake here, but who has heard of thrumming?  Does it really make your mittens a lot warmer?  And just how hard, exactly, is it? Do you end up with a whole bunch of the unspun yarn in the mitten? Do you need to sew in a lining to the underside of the mitten? Discuss.

After a brief ravelry pattern search for mittens, I came across these adorable thrummed mittens and they are really intriguing.  Not sure where in my long queue  I can fit them in but I do believe they should go on the ‘must knit’ list.

Speaking of my queue, it’s baby all the way.  Cast on is an afghan for my home now, but once that’s done I’ll be knitting for the soon to be born little one’s.  Without giving too much away, I’m attempting my 1st fair isle pattern for one friend who is due in February, a heavily cabled garment for another friend due in April and then a little something is in the works for another close friend and fellow knitter, who is expecting in May. Other than that, I have no baby items to knit. 🙂

Until next time, keep knitting and have fun!

p.s. Did any Canadian get that reference to those old “Body Break with Hal Johnson and Johanne McLeod” commercials on local channel stations?
