Happy New Year Everyone! I was wondering if any of you had knit with beads before. I seen them do it on Knitty Gritty I think.I will check the DIY site later. My mother in law wanted a sweater knit. I picked a pattern of a fairly easy sweather jacket. I could not find the color yarn she wanted so I picked a victorian rose color, but I would like to put light colored beads on collar and cuffs. I would appreciate any hints given. Thanks. : ) Mary

Thanks, I went to your link and it was interesting. I did not realize there were two different ways. I am anxious to start the sweater now. I have to finish my daughter's sweater and this beaded project is next. I hope I don't have to take back to many times,ha ha. The yarn is going to be all frayed! ha ha. Thanks again, appreciate it. : ) Mary
