Oh, man. I crack myself up. While working on another pair of these mitts, I put it on and showed my mom, who said it looked like something out of Edward Scissorhands, leading to the Edward Knitterhands.
In other news, the progress shown in this picture only took about three hours. Not too shabby. I've got two pairs of these mitts to finish by Monday, so it's nice to know a time frame.
