World's Warmest Mittens, part 2

So, while I'm deciding what to do about the Selbu glove, I'll start the thrummed colorwork mittens I'm making for WGS. (Wicked Good Stepmother)
Once again, I'm using Elliphantom's gorgeous Herringbone Mittens pattern, with some mods.

First, I knit a full cuff in K1P1 ribbing - these mittens are for a woman who'll be wearing them to the barn to do chores. (Note: pigs steal mittens. They also steal hats. And untie shoelaces. Pigs have a very strange sense of humor...)
And now, let the thrumming begin!

As soon as I can figure out how to chart where the thrums go, I'll put up the chart. So far I'm completely inept...

I've wanted to try the Herringbone Mitts, they always look great no matter what color scheme the knitter chooses.

I did not know that pigs were so swipe-y. Imagining a pig running off with a mitten is amusing...but a hand-knit mitten? Would have me making an ass out of myself chasing down a pig.
