Who knows what thrums are? It has nothing to do with musical instruments. Just to set the record straight, you never have to even think of me and a musical instrument in the same sentence unless radio, ipod or Pandora count as musical instruments.
Here’s a good article about thrums when it comes to knitting. I’ve been wanting to try “thrumming” and one of the girls in our Tuesday knitting group got me more interested so after finishing up the Undulance socks, I decided to try thrumming. Addie wants mittens so I thought I would try these socks and if that works, I’ll make her some thrummed mittens, knowing that from now on, she’ll probably only want thrummed mittens.
This is what the inside of my socks looks like.
Another angle from the top of the sock. Doesn’t that look like a cozy little bluebird nest?
I’m just knitting in little pieces of this roving. Very Pink has a wonderful video on how to do thrumming and this is the way I’m doing it. This is my first time to try it and I’ve already done two rows. The second row went much faster than did the first. Hoping the third row goes even faster!
These are going to be more like slippers than socks and this winter, when my feet are cold, I will probably need a dozen pairs of these!
