In a bag of donated hats and scarves, was a pair of thrummed slippers. ( I found out the technique from a knowledgable knitter at a craft store who had just happened to see them on a website.)
I want to knit some for next year's family Christmas gifts. Has anyone experience with this. Some of my colleagues remember mittens with warm insides.

I posted this pattern yesterday. I love the warmth of these slippers. I would make them higher around my ankles if I ever made another pair. jinx
This pattern looks like a lot of fun. Would you just add mroe crocheting on the ankle to make it taller?

Okay, I'm clueless. What does "thrummed" mean? Does it mean it's lined?

Nevermind. Answered my own question. :)

"Thrum knitting is an old European tradition using unspun wool for added warmth. Made with Columbia Yarn"

Perfect! My brother was giving me a hard time for making "thin" mittens the other day and I think he may get a pair of these for his birthday and possibly a pair of slippers too.
