More December projects

The two dishcloths are completed - comfort projects - busy hands, happy heart.
The thrummed mittens are an adventure into new territory. I'd never done anything "thrummed" before. I'm done with the first and have the wrist done on the second. I'm hoping to have it done shortly after Christmas to send to a friend up north. They are way too warm to wear down here. In case, gentle reader, you're not familiar with thrummed garments, the little pink spots are the visible part of chunks of wool roving that line the inside and are very fuzzy warm. Each little chunk is pulled from the roving, smoothed into a yarn-like strand and knit into the mitten as it progresses. It has an afterthought thumb which I think is very cool.
