I went big and decided to put a thumb gusset on the tube. So far, that’s working for me. But won’t lie, I did have to try a number of variations for finishing the thumb: to cast-off or not to cast-off? In the end and a after a few attempts, I went with not casting-off. Made for a cleaner join at the hand.
Also, after an absolutely ridiculous(ly fabulous) amount of Bon Jovi, I have a conference paper. It is not nearly so photogenic.
And I might have hurt myself jumping around the living room to “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
