Surprise, Mom

My mum’s hands are always cold, so I’ve been secretly working on a pair of thrummed mittens to keep her warm.  I had a false start on these a while back, but gave it another go with some better roving.  I tried them on for comparison, and felt like I was wearing great, big marshmallows on my hands.  They’re strangely splendid and ridiculous, all at the same time. 

Here’s the inside – with wear, those fleecy little bits will felt into a lining that’ll keep out anything Chicagoland winter can throw at it.

    Love them! My hands will never feel the cold again. And they’re my favorite color.
