FO: Celestial Flame Mitts

I've decided that "Celestial Flame Mitts" would be an appropriate name for a project from a Carl Sagan-inspired pattern:

Starstuff [Rav link] by Amy van de Laar; knit in Lang Yarns Jawoll Solid Superwash, colorways 83.0004 (black) and 83.0085 (silver)

These were knit for my fabulous friend Jill Factotum -- super handy, super crafty -- and I followed her preferences for modifications. Pattern designer Amy has very helpfully indicated good stopping points for trying on and making decisions, so that's what happened for the first one; I desperately tried to remember the mods for the second one.  Thanks to Ravelry, I wrote down that I doubled the number of large star repeats before the thumb gusset and I did one extra dot repeat round before the twisted ribbing on top.

She's a model, you know what I mean?
