WIP Wednesday – Thrummed Mittens

IMG_4061Although we are enjoying a lovely mild spell right now, I’m hard at work making some cozy thrummed mittens for the inevitable cold snap that is to come.

Since the recipient of these mittens is a man who works outdoors, I’ve chosen some nice dark colors in the hope that the mittens will keep looking smart with wear.  I picked up both the wool and the yarn the last time I was out to Belfast Mini Mills.  It is REALLY hard to come from that store without adopting quite a lot of their gorgeous fiber and yarn!

I’m making the pattern up as I go along to match up with the sketch of his hand size so that they will fit his hands like a glove … er, mitten, I guess in this case.  😀

What kind of crafty things are you up to, this fine Wednesday? Are you knitting warm woolly things to fend off the cold as well?  Do tell!
