It is figured out. At least for now. You know things change as soon as you start knitting and realize, oh shit, I placed this bead right where I’m supposed to decrease. Blah, we’ll get there when we get there. I have to get BEADS! Diana, are you listening? It’s BEAD time!
How many beads? Well, the neckline needs only 434, but I want more. Here’s my thinking: because I didn’t want any beads below my bust, there will be just six beaded rows, spaced closely together. Kinda little, isn’t it? I will do my best to make the beads stand out while not looking like I’m an eighties flashback, but still, just six rows.
Diana (yes, that same trouble-maker Diana) suggested that I make one beaded row right after the ribbing on the hem and cuffs. I think that will be okay, I’ll put them maybe every 4 or 5 stitches, not too flashy. What do you think? So then I need about 100 more.
Off to Beadworks I go! Need about 550 beads! There’s a Honda I see parked on my street, and I think Honda-colored beads will go perfectly with the Rowan yarn I’m using for the Fibo. Must match color of Honda!
And just for a little fun, these black-and-white printouts I keep photographing splayed out on my floor are actually in color on my computer:
OH. MY. GOD. Pikachu has chicken pox!
