super fluffy

I know it's ironic to be knitting something this warm during the warmest part of the summer. Oops. I've been quietly obsessed with thrummed mittens for quite some time now ... they've been on my knitting wishlist oh .... forever. So I am super, super excited to have finally made these! When you put your hands inside ... the best way to describe it is the "IT'S SO FLUFFY!!!!!" quote from Despicable Me. Seriously. Fluffy. And soooooooft. I rarely will have days in the winter where I will actually need these mittens, but you can bet I'll be wearing them even though the threat of frostbite is nonexistent!

Pattern: Zenitude Thrummed Mittens Kit (link to my Ravelry project page)
Needles: size 6 Knit Picks Harmony
Mods: None! Super super speedy and fun and fast kit!

I may have made my thrums a little too long, looking at this picture. But it's all good when everything is on the inside!
