Fancy Mitts

Fueled by the need for instant gratification and faced with a burgeoning stash, I have been highly motivated lately to make quick projects that allow me to clear away some of this yarn.  It helps that there are MANY birthdays in my family during the winter.  One sister with a January birthday was recently the happy recipient of these:
  She called them fancy mitts, so that's their name.  The glass beads are strung on before knitting.  The pattern is very simple--the beads do the shaping along the cuff.  The bead pattern is inspired by Beads of Earth scarf by Jane Davis.
