I made fetching from knitty and they are big one me, and I consider myself to have big hands.  I did not follow gauge so thats what I get.  I used the recommanded yarn and I have to use a little more from a second skein.  I also left out the picot bind-off.  Next time I make this I will use smaller needles

hey that's a beautiful green! sorry to hear that they turned out too big, i didn't gauge swatch either (teehee) AND i had to tap into a second ball as well (okay so first i swore then pouted then went all the way to the LYS to fork out another $11.50 for a second ball) but my hands aren't very big and i have tiny wrists and they still fit me.

mm debbie bliss cashmerino.. squishy goodness. my pair is pilling/fuzzing a bit though. =\

They are divine. I love the colour. I made a pair of Fetching in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a gorgeous purple. I checked gauge and mine were huge too. I think I'll frog them and start again. I had to use a second ball so will probably get away with one when I remake them. From the posts I have seen before on these gloves I think that this is a fairly common experience. Yours are still lovely though.
