Beading knits

Since I am using very small beads and not-so-smallish yarn, I've created my own rather messy method for knitting with beads. Instead of stringing beads directly onto the yarn, I'm stringing them onto a heavy sewing thread (silk beading thread would work, too) and then I carry that thread along with my yarn, two-stranded-style. When I'm ready for a bead, I slip it into place, work it and adjust it to show on the public side of the piece.

Very simple. And very tedious.

If you want to avoid this tsouris, Art Yarns, Be Sweet and Tilli Tomas have pre-beaded yarns
