First Thrum Mitts

"Congratulations to Naomi Leet and Debbie Sherwood for completing their first pair of Thrum Mitts! Naomi's left hand mitt is knit with Brigg's & Little Softspun and Fleece Artist's Blue Face Leicester Sliver Roving. The mitt on her right hand is knit with Noro Kureyon and FA's BFL Sliver as well. Debbie's mitts are knit with FA's BFL Sliver and a cotton candy pink colored Cascade Pastaza. A fantastic job was done by all of the knitters who participated in the Thrum Mitten Classes held throughout the last months of 2013 here at the Moncton Cricket Cove. Every pair knit was unique, colorful and gorgeous! If you are interested in learning how to make your own Thrum Mitts, give us a call at the Moncton shop or better yet drop by and browse the warm and wonderful selection of "Thrum Mitt Perfect Yarns." We look forward to seeing you! Happy New Year and Happy Thrumming to all in 2014!
