Do you measure from the tip of your middle finger or from the edge of your palm (where your fingers begin)?

I can't seem to find a conclusive source for how the measuring in inches works.
Measure from top of wrist (where wrist meets hand) to the top of your middle finger. Take that # in inches and X2. For instance, my measurement from top of wrist (bottom of palm) to the top of my middle finger is exactly 7.5". So when i take that # and multiply it by 2 it comes out to 15" which is actually the size gloves I wear (and find most comfortable). I can do a 14 but it tends to be a bit tighter in the fingers then I like, plus I play defense and sometimes grind out a bit of center on the 4th, so I prefer a glove that is easy to shake if necessary.

Heres a good video by Tyson @ IW Hockey:
