Well, I played a mean game of Chicken with the yarn.
The yarn's band said the skein weighed 50 grams. I didn't weigh it before I began knitting, but when I'd finished the first glove, I had 26 grams of yarn left in the skein. One gram more than exactly half. Excellent. Excellent as long as the skein had actually weighed 50 grams when I started.
And so, the game of Yarn Chicken began. I got a little nervous doing the second glove's bind-off.

But in the end, the Yarn Gods blessed me with a spare 6.5 inches of yarn. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Yarn Gods!
