I was able to finish one thrummed mitten over Christmas break. I made the thrums for this mitten a little bigger and also added 4 stitches to the mitten (so 48 instead of 44). I really like how the mitten turned out, it fits and I think it's going to be extremely warm. I have to get more fiber before I can start on the second mitten, so I'll probably have to wait until the weekend to make more progress on the second mitten.
I have a bunch of leftover fiber from the first pair of mittens, I think I'll make a felt garland for spring.
