It is a cold winter. Very cold.

Perhaps you live in northern Canada, or perhaps Finland or Siberia, or perhaps the North or South Pole.

Or perhaps you have a Polar Vortex that inexplicably came your way.

But whatever the explanation, you need good mittens.

Here to the rescue: thrumms. They make the inside of your mitten thick, warm, and fluffy.

Make them, wear them, and smile with the cold. You’re ready for it.

Really Clear Skill Rating:
Level 2: You’re becoming fairly independent with knitting. You are comfortable with knitting, purling, and perhaps a few basic stitch patterns. You might need an explanation for a technique here and there rather than having the entire pattern being step-by-step.
