Thrums are FUN

I'm so loving the Twist Knit-a-Mitten-of-the-Month pattern, Thrummed Mittens. The thrums are the figure eight fiber (mine is llama) shapes you make to knit into the mitten -- that's the fun part! These looped ends lay inside of the mitten making a very warm cushion of furry goodness.

In anticipation of Laura's drop spindle class on March 7th, I placed an order for some fiber from Artclub on Etsy and my package came in the mail today. Jackie and Becca turned me on to this "Thrifty" Kansas seller of great combed fiber just begging to be spun into something wonderful.
