Midsummer mittens, anyone?

This is a crappy picture in crappy light but at least it shows that I’m making at least some kind of progress on the mittens. I’m past the thumb gusset and only have a few rows left before I can start the decreases. But it’s slow work, oh, so slow. I can only make about five rows a day, maximum. It will be a great day, and probably warm enough that you don’t need mittens anymore, when this project is done. It’s taken me about three weeks to accomplish this so if they are done by Easter I will be very happy.
