Cold winters call for more than just any kind of mittens. Thrumming is a technique that incorporates pieces of fiber/roving into your knitting creating a soft, insulating layer between you and that winter chill. These quick, cozy mittens will keep your hands nice and toasty until you can make it to your next cup of tea or hot chocolate.
In this class, you’ll learn about fiber, the technique of thrumming, and cast the mittens on to try it out yourself! You’ll have a new skill under your belt and your new favorite winter mittens on your needles.
