It's not really magic that's making these mittens, it's my knitting.
I am so very close to finishing mitten number two. Perhaps because of a fall spent knitting lace, double-knit hats, and loooong scarves my project perspective changed. These mittens take no time at all. It is so satisfying to notice progress even from one subway ride.
Of course, I'm enjoying these mittens so much that I knit them a lot more than just during my commute.
