Thrummed Mittens KnitKit
Thrumming is a technique developed in Newfoundland that incorporates a bit of unspun wool into your stitches! Â The result is a super-squishy, super warm mitten. Â These adorable mittens were designed by Helene Driesen of Kieran Knits. Â Helene is a Shetland Wool Week Teacher and Designer.
