Choose from a wide variety of colors to knit your set of thrummed mittens.
Years ago in England, the woolen mills would discard slubs of wool, called "thrums," which knitters would gather and use in their mittens to add extra texture and warmth. This tradition was brought to Newfoundland by the settlers and after being almost forgotten for years, has been recently revived. (source: darktickle.com)
There is no left and right mittens for this pattern: they are both worked identically. At first, you may feel a bit tight in the mitt, but the roving will eventually compress against the inside of the mitt and your mittens will become insulated and very warm!
