had a thought just now. (don't worry, i'll be ok.)
i have some malabrigo gruesa which is a bulky thick/thin ball of yumminess. i knit a scarf in seed stitch with some of my stash, in a dark burgundy color. i have some of that left, in addition to some apple cinnamon color of the same variety.
i'm wondering if i knit some mittens in the remainder of the burgundy, if i could pull the apple cinnamon apart to resemble roving and use it to thrum the mittens. the yarn itself is very close to roving. it is not plied, nor is it spun very tightly. it wouldn't take much to work it into what i might need to thrum the mittens.
anyone ever do anything like this? or have thoughts on whether it might work?
