Slow Stitching

I’m continuing with knitting as my main focus for slow stitching. I finished my hat and my thrummed mittens. So very soft  and so  very toasty warm. When I finished those it occurred to me that I have a very large stash of leftover worsted weight yarns that could be used to make even more pairs of mittens. I wasn’t certain however that I had enough of the roving to do another pair, so I bought some more from my local yarn shop. I seem to have more than enough now. I can probably furnish enough thrummed mitts for the whole family with the amount that is here. My sweater is set aside for the moment while I work on another pair of mitts. If I can get them done in time they may end up as a Christmas gift for our daughter. So with that goal in mind, I will publish this post and link to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then get back to knitting.

  3. OHH, that is a great use for unspun roving. I have several colors of natural Shetland roving that would be great for thrumb mittens. Yours look fantastic!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
