the incredible tedium of beading

Wow, does beading ever break the rhythm of knitting. But it looks pretty cool.

ps. Kieran Foley has a pattern, Fleece, in the latest Knitty and it's free!

No kidding! I've been doing the beaded edging on my shawl (I'm only beading the edging as opposed to the entire shawl that the pattern is written for), and I'm coming up on a row that has 10 beads per every 38 stitch repeat...and 29 repeats across the shawl (plus the edges). So, 290 someodd beads across a 1100+ stitch row. THAT'S gonna take me a while.
