2nd or 3rd Glove Syndrome?
But, alas, she is too small! The pattern calls for 8 sts/in, but it's a one-size fits all pattern and my hand span is a bit smaller than the average hand. Plus, trying on Calia's almost completed glove at the shop, I figured I could knit it a bit tighter and have it fit perfectly. Unfortunately, I guess I overdid the tight knitting (as usual) and my gauge turned out to be 9.5 sts/in. So, the glove fits, but kind of cuts off my circulation too.
Thus the 2nd (and 3rd) glove dilemma. I have a few orphaned socks lounging about waiting for their mates to be finished and I suspect I won't be any more conscientious with gloves - especially gloves that I've already knit poorly the first time out. I've cast on for a second glove in the next needle size. Let's see how far I'll get before I throw in the towel.
Still, this glove sans hand is quite pretty. I wish I could frame it and not waste my efforts completely...
