Adding Beads to Lace

When adding the beads to the Spring Garden Shawl, a different method was used. In my previous bead knitting, all the beads were strung on the yarn before knitting and then pulled up when needed. That would have been very tedious on this shawl because the majority of beads were added at the end. When the bead needed to be added on the next stitch, the bead was put on the crochet hook.The stitch is pulled through the bead and replaced on the left needle.

And the stitch is purled.

That is the only way to add beads, in my opinion! Beautful shawls, by the way.
