Winter woolies.

These are thrummed mittens.

I must say that they are fabulously warm.

They are knitted with little lengths of either fleece or thick fluffy yarn inserted every fourth stich of every fourth row, to make a warm lining as you go.

The above pair is a bit light on the lining as I was just trying out the idea with a pattern I found in the "Dyeing to Knit" book.

But it shows the concept clearly. 

And together with a beany they make a lovely warm winter set.

The outside looks like this with little heart like dots resulting from the inserted thick yarn.
Quite decorative and cute.
