I haven't started my right-hand glove yet, but for exact symmetry I am thinking I'll keep the gusset increases on the palm side because of the purl stitches.
So, I'm thinking I would start right away on the first needle -- knit the first stitch, then make one, then purl one, then knit the rest of the round. Knit one round even, then on the first needle knit two, make one, purl one, knit around...
Ingrid, please let me know if this would not work correctly. It seems like it defeats the purpose of the purl stitch, which on the left glove conveniently indicates when to make one (?), but also results in a vertical line that I think would be noticably absent on the right glove if I did it on needle 4 instead of needle 1. ?
