Reducing gaps in between fingers for gloves

I am trying to knit gloves for my sister in law but i am experiencing some difficulty. In between each finger (where you need to pick up 2 stitches) I get 2 gaps in the yarn. How do i get rid of these?? Am I knitting them properly? I have no idea what i am doing wrong and I really want them to be perfect. I need some pointers.:knitting:

Maybe you could twist the stitches when you pick them up? That would tighten them up a little.

i dont think that would work because you are supposed to pick up the stitches (usually 2) at the base of the previous finger (from what i understand) and then knit on the discarded stitches. I am not sure if I am right about this too. Does anyone know what I am talking about?
