{finished project} Thrummed Christmas Slippers

by Dec 26, 20153 snugbugs studios, finished objects, yarn0 comments

Happy Holidays Snugbugs! Jeff and I are coming down from some Christmas bliss, cozying up in the sofa and reading our haul of Christmas books.

It was a very bookish holiday for us!

It was also a very knitted Christmas, we gave hand-made gifts for the most part this year. My favorite project was this wonderful pair of Christmas slippers. I used one of my favorite knitting techniques, thrumming. Thrumming creates a super soft, squishy and cozy garment somewhat similar to a sheepskin-lining. Thrummed garments have tufts of unspun wool (roving) twisted into the knitting every few stitches. The tails of the roving create the soft, squishy lining.

This technique is wonderful for mittens, slippers and headbands. The lining is very bulky, so the project needs lots of room on the inside, making something like teeny, tiny glove fingers much to restrictive to be workable.
