Count Twice, Knit Once
I've made a start on my second version of the beaded knitting tulip bag. As I've said before, the most time-consuming part is fixing mistakes. A join can't be made in the middle of a row (trust me, I've tried!) so if a bead has been wrongly placed, the row must be unpicked, the beads restrung correctly and the row reknitted. This necessitates cutting the yarn, so a lot of mistakes results in a lot of ends to be sewn in. So.... I'm trying earnestly to avoid mistakes by checking each row of beads strung before I slide it down.
