Gloves of (Temporarily Reduced) Awesomeness

   The first glove was going along smoothly until I realized my proportions are not the same as the pattern's.  I had to start over and figure out a way to make them fit.  My choices were to either continue with the same gauge and reduce the stitch counts in certain places or fuck with the tension a lot which can get hairy and shift later.  I first tried the tension method (four times) with little success so gave up and started over a fifth time to reduce the stitch count.  The measurements are much better now. :)

<< This is a picture of the first attempt... which was way too big on my arm.

   For some odd reason I could not, for the life of me, stop making silly mistakes.  It was due to sheer inattentiveness, I know.  Also, somewhere in there, there was a half-hearted attempt at starting the second glove before the first was done... that, also, was unraveled.
