Thrummed Mitts - Roving Suggestions?
Hi Everyone,

I am about to embark on my first pair of thrummed mittens and am looking for quality, affordable roving in three colors (light gray, blue gray, and sapphire blue). Does anyone have suggestions for where to buy roving online? Also, any tips/tricks for thrummed mitts appreciated. Thanks one and all!

Best,

Aramis

I've never thrummed before.

I'd check out what Knitting Daily had to say about thrummed mittens. I haven't read it recently, but they usually have good information.

I'd also search for thrummed anything at www.ravelry.com and see what projects anyone has done and read their comments.

Can't speak to prices, but I'd check out yarnmarket.com and yarn.com for prices.
