- Cast on using this method, except, unlike last time, I just used the same size needle. Also, I did the cast on on the circular needles instead of the straights.... because I forgot I was supposed to switch the needles, frankly.
- Like last time, worked one extra cable repeat before starting on thumb gusset and only worked four rounds of ribbing on the hand and thumb instead of eight.
- Did not use a stretchy bind off, and all turned out fine!
