Knitting with beads is fun!

I decided to knit with beads for my November Do Something New project. I gotta admit I have wasted a lot of time being afraid to try it. It is a lot of fun, and pretty too. I chose Odessa from Mag Knits
and am knitting it with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK color 18021 (dark brown).

It is a very quick knit, I am about halfway done with this one and I am sure I will make more of them. Oh, I will definitely knit with beads again.

Odessa is looking very nice. I'm not sure I'm ready for knitting with beads; I can't see myself threading all those beads on the yarn first - too impatient. :)

Swank! it's looking good. Beads are fun, eh? I have about 2000 seed beads or so in the stash awaiting future knitting projects.

Wow, this is going to be really beautiful!!! I've always wanted to try the Odessa pattern, but as I've never knitted with beads before, I've always postponed the project in fear that I'd mess it up completely! Seeing your progress sure inspired me to give it a try one day too!
