Have you been wanting to try adding some beads to your knitting? Are you somewhere in the middle and just want to add a few beads for accent? This technique works well with the larger beads and heavier wool.
Take one of those dental floss threaders, cut off the long tip so that the curved part is open. This stiff piece of blue fibre will hold your stitch and pick-up the beads with no problems.
Before knitting your stitch – take the stitch off of the left hand needle with the dental floss threader.
Then even up the ends of the threader and use them to pick-up the bead.
Then slide the bead down the threader and onto the stitch.
Once the bead is on the stitch slide the stitch back onto the left hand needle and then knit.
