And now to sleep...

With a forecast windchill of -45 C tomorrow, there's no way I wanted to leave the house without my thrummed mittens! And since having a set of dpns still in them would be awkward, I stayed up to finish:
Thrummed Mittens
Okay warm weather, it's time to show up!

I love those! With the Reynauds, those would be perfect for me and my chronically purple fingers. I bought the latest issue of Interweave Crochet and they have a crocheted thrummed mitten pattern I may try-using wool and roving I already have-can't wrap my head around the pattern just yet though.

Oooo, neat! I'll have to look in the latest IC. (I don't think I have it... if I do, I haven't read it yet.)

Let me know if you need me to knit you a pair, if the crochet ones don't work out for you. ;)

do you wear any rings? i've thought about thrummed mitts (i have arthritis, and warmth is a huge necessity), but i'm afraid my ring would catch before the thrums felted.

No, I don't wear rings. I think snagging would be a problem. I suppose you could always wear a light liner mitten inside the thrummed mitten...

Yikes! -45C?! That's insane for goodnesssake. It's 50 degrees F in my house and I'm complaining! note to self: only live in temperate climes!

You know, I think I'd be complaining if it were 50F in my house too. ;) It didn't end up getting that cold... only -38C with windchill, if I remember correctly. Then, take the windchill off of that, and it sounds much more reasonable. (When wearing the correct clothing, and spending minimal time outside, of course!)
