I am learning to knit gloves, I've made 4 of the half-finger style. The first one was too big with a crooked finger. Second one was smaller with a crooked finger...gee whiz! I actually completed a pair that looked okay and no crooked fingers. Now I started another set but this one will have complete fingers. I am using Lion Brand Fisherman's wool and it is SOOO...soft. I plan to have this pair come out beautiful.
