When I was in Canada they were selling kits at the store that I use for sock yarn. I think the product came from Briggs and Little in New Brunswick. (Your part of the world.) They look so nice and warm. Have you made many of them? I now wished I would have picked up a kit because I really like yours. It is a wonderful time of year in Nova Scotia if you are a knitter - although it has been cold here in Morelia as well. Do you miss your lovely yarn store in Toronto?

Oh yes Ron I miss it very much, there are a couple of good yarn stores down here but are some distance away and I don't drive much anymore. I am sure there is a pattern on Ravelry for the mitts and all you need for the thrums is unspun wool. Not sure how readily that is in Mexicon lol.

Such good work. Can't wait to get there.

Those are great mittens, Dennis And you can use extra bits of bulky yarn for the thrums, or even washed locks of fleece. I imagine a few strands of yarn held together would also work for thrums. Just perfect for chilly weather.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Always great to see your work and hear about Nova Scotian life Dennis. Thanks reminding me about thrumming. I have disturbing large amount of Briggs and Little roving stashed somewhere. Time to get at some mittens again :-) All the best to you guys.
