I am using cvlist to itemize my content as follows:

\begin{cvlist}{HEADING}
\item[1] blah
\item[2] blah blah
.
.
.
\end{cvlist} 

However, the gap between the numbers (such as 1,2 etc) and the content (such blah) is very large. How can I change it?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please complement your code to a minimal working example (MWE). It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{currvita} and ending with \end{document}. Also, we don't usually put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. –  doncherry Apr 1 '13 at 19:01

Redefine the length \cvlabelwidth:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{currvita}

\begin{document}

\begin{cvlist}{HEADING}
\item[1] blah
\item[2] blah blah
\end{cvlist}

{
\setlength\cvlabelwidth{10pt}
\begin{cvlist}{HEADING}
\item[1] blah
\item[2] blah blah
\end{cvlist}
}

\end{document}

enter image description here

According to the currvita documentation:

The default width of the labels of the cvlist environments is equal to the width of 88/8888–88/8888, because normally in the left hand column dates are typeset (and, at least in Germany, should be formatted in this way).
