I used leftover Lorna's Laces in the "Tahoe" colorway, with purple AB glass beads. The beading on the hand is only on the back of the hand, and I sewed those on afterwards.
But the "leftover sock yarn" aspect was just too appealing, so here's my second pair in Vicki Suan's Watermelon yarn.
For these, I really DID make sock tops! I used my favorite feather & fan pattern -- with size 4 needles instead of size 0. Every time a black "seed" came up in the yarn, I purled the stitch in front of it, dropped 3 beads, purled the next stitch to lock them in place, and continued on in pattern.
These aren't the only two pair I've made, either! But since the others are destined as gifts, I won't show them here! :) But, as you can tell, I've really become a fan of fingerless gloves. I never would have bothered to try them without Lorna's Challenge — but I guess that's what she's trying to do: nudge us out of our comfort zones and encourage us to try something new. Thanks, Lorna! :)
