3rd glove syndrome
I did finish the second glove. And look how good I was, I made the second glove a left glove too so I wouldn't be tempted to just stop at the second glove and use a mismatched (size-wise) pair.
The second glove is slightly too large, but I prefer a slightly large glove to a slightly small glove. Now, I just need to cast on and knit its mate (easier said than done).
Thoughts on the pattern:
I like the pattern. There's a definite left and right hand which is nice since our hands aren't identical. I also like the amount of fair isle in the gloves - just enough to provide visual interest, but not so much as to be overwhelming for a first time fair isler.
Making the glove a second time was instructive. I always have problems with holes in gloves. I find that I need to pick up more stitches than the miserly number patterns usually prescribe. I then reduce the amount of stitches to the right amount on succeeding rounds. Any remaining gaps, I fill in when weaving in ends.
