The Coldest Capital in the World…

So, I’m taking a trip to Ottawa tomorrow to visit a friend, but the weather lately is not looking so friendly…

Yesterday, Ottawa was officially the coldest capital city in the world.  Clearly this means one thing. Serious cold, needs seriously warm mittens.

The first time I’ve ever made thrummed mittens…and I think it’s going fairly well. I’m sort of making up the pattern and trying it on as a go along, because most (all…) of the (free) patterns I found didn’t have a thumb gusset. My hands were not made for an afterthought thumb, so I’m creating my own as I go.

So far the spacing of the thrums has been going pretty well for being improvised on the go. I’m writing it down in hopes of making the second one resemble the first…

I’m going to have to knit fast if I want to have a pair by tomorrow afternoon…but the forecast is providing PLENTY of motivation. Wish me luck!
