The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

The stats: Thrummed Mittens, by Jennifer L. Appleby, in Interweave Knits, winter 2006. Yarn used: Noro Kureyon, shade 170. Modifications made were a longer cuff, and grafting the tops of the mitts and thumbs instead of drawing the yarn through the remaining live stitches. I used unspun Icelandic wool in contrasting colors for the thrums.
I just love the fraternal quality of these mittens.
