This is my second ever beaded knitting project. I’m not normally drawn to bling so I never paid attention to any beady stuff. Now I’m knitting a shawl that has nearly 400 beads, each placed on the shawl one by one. The whole thought was daunting. The first project I did, a pair of socks with a bit of beading detail around the leg, was done by pre-stringing the beads which was easy. I then just pulled one up and placed it where I wanted to when I wanted it. The shawl requires a different approach.
When I was at Knit Night last week Teresa and Caroline showed me how to put beads on yarn stitches. It is so easy and so cool that I thought I’d document it here so I can come back and remind myself how to do it should I become a lover of blingy knits. Also maybe I’ll be introducing you to a new method.
