Potion Gloves - DONE!

Started Nov 1/14
Finished Nov 18/14

I knitted the stockinette until the distance between Chart 2 and the garter bind off till 2".  I tried to do the picot bind off but it was just way too loose.  I switch to size 1 before doing the garter bind off.  I did an extra knit and purl round before binding off.  Since the glove is large for me, I didn't worry about a stretchy bind off.

I added 4 stitches to the thumb and knitted an extra 4 rounds before switching to size 1 needles to do the garter bind off.

Nov 9/14 - finished the first glove

Needles:  Size 1 and 3 circulars
