- Project: Thrummed Mittens, “Total Eclipse of the Thrums” with help from Adrian Bizilla’s Thrummed Mitten Tutorial and WoolTrends Thrummed Mittens Pattern
- Yarn: Handspun two-toned Jacob wool
- Thrums: Two if by Hand, Shetland, Colorway “Eclipse”
- Needles: US 5 and 7
- Verdict: Warm and toasty. A fun knit although be prepared for fluffy everywhere! Best part? To paraphrase a friend, “it’s impossible to take one’s self seriously while bouncing around in oven mitts.”

Once upon a time there was wool in my stash
Begging to be knitted and spun
What else could I do? A total eclipse of the thrums.
Once upon a time there were warm toasty hands
Fluff filled oven mittens with thumbs
Nothing I could knit but A total eclipse of the thrums.
No I’m not goofy. Not at all.
