Thanks! I will try to get better pictures outside when their significant others appear.
The thrummed mittens kit was from the local sheep farm/yarn business. It was my first time knitting not 'soft' wool but despite its 'toughness' it was surprisingly pleasant, spring-y, and 'reliable'. With more experience, the quality/origins of yarn becomes more noticeable and significant in different ways.
ETA: the spot in the middle where one thrum was missing (well, ommited as I was dealing with a thumb and then forgot about it) is fixed. Just in case anyone (everyone?) noticed.
