Beaded Pulse Warmers, part 2

I uploaded a picture of the beaded pulse warmers mentioned in my last post. After wearing these a while they stretched out a bit, making them just a tad too loose. If I were making them again, I would use a smaller size needle. And maybe try a smaller bead, although I don't know if anything smaller would fit on the yarn. Size 8 Delicas?

I forgot to mention that when I made these, I misread the directions and didn't string enough beads to follow the pattern as written. And it's a good thing I didn't do it "right" because they would have been waaaaay too big. I read "repeat five times" and thought it meant to work 5 pattern repeats, total. But no, I think she meant to have us knit 6 pattern repeats. The first one, explained, and then "repeat five times". As I said, just as well I did it wrong.
