On the Podium

Once upon a time, I had a box of teeny tiny locks.

Those locks got washed and dyed.

Then they were carded into pretty batts.

Those batts got spun into yarn.

The yarn got knit into a pair of thrummed mittens during the 2014 Winter Olympics.

It's been a cold winter here. Colder than in Sochi, Russia.

It's not very often that I can take photos of mittens in the snow.

 Here is a peek at the insides. They are filled with soft fluffy fiber-and all the unwoven ends from the colorwork. The best thing is that they are done. Now I can actually watch the remaining events instead of just listening to them.


  1. They turned out great! We've got more snow coming tomorrow - I think I need a pair!

  2. They look great, and so warm. Well done, and enjoy the rest of the Olympics.

  3. Ta-da! They turned out great! So what project is next!?!

  4. Gorgeous, gold medal mittens! :-)

  5. Wow they came out amazing! !GOld medal for you
