Afer much deliberation, I decided to "act" like I did it intentionally and make the other glove in the same erroneous manner.
I used the yarn called for in the pattern--Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran-- and after blocking, they are very soft and have a nice sturdy feel to them. I will definitely use the yarn again. I don't know if I will make the gloves again. For the most part, it was exceptionally easy. The problem came with the thumb gusset. HOLES. Although I twisted the picked up stitches, I still had to use my yarn for weaving to close the holes. If I make them again, I will pick up 3-4 stiches on the sides rather than 2 to ensure that there are no holes.
When it's all said and done. They are fun to knit and super-d-duper quick. I recommend the pattern with the knowledge that you will have to make some modifications.
Because of my error, I have a little more than 6 yards left and only used one ball. I had purchased two, just in case. I am at the very end stages of a baby hat that I really like and plan to post pics of it tommorrow.
