Lke this. This is what I’ve been doing

So you know I’ve been hitting the stranded knitting pretty damn hard. Do I pick up one of my WIPs and get to work? Of course not.

I rummage around for some plain white wool, and some beads. I’ve never done beaded knitting. Never really interested, except that one time I put beads on the bind off of a small garter stitch shawl. (oh, I knit that. I’ll show you some time soon.). But for some completely off the wall, out of the blue reason, I have to mix my beads with my yarn. Crazy, I know.

I wanted to demonstrate some Other Ways to use charts in knitting. That’s what I wanted to do. So I pulled up a page of small motifs from my mitten design class, and cast on 36 sts in some natural white Rauma Finnullgarn. Joined in the round, two garter stitch ridges, and off I go with the beads. It looks like this.

    I love bead knitting, are you attaching the beads as you go or did you string them before knitting?

      I attach as I go, using a very tiny crochet hook. I don’t like the idea of having all those beads abrading the yarn as push them down the yarn as I work.

        Thanks! I did add beads once using the add as you go method on Knitty’s Ice Queen. I like the stringing and sliding of beads into place as I knit.
