This originally started out as a Berroco Andy tank top, but with the big needles it came out a bit more...holey...than expected. But I worked with it, and decided to add some blue and purple beads into the front of the tank. It came out very interesting, and lord knows nobody else is going to have something like this!



Here's a closeup of the beads.



Since it's uh, rather see-through, I have a shirt on under this so you can see how it looks more clearly.



And here's how I'm going to wear it, with a purple tank top underneath.
This is my first knitting project (finally finished!), and I'm amazed it's done at all!

That's really pretty!  How did you add the beads? Did you knit them on or add them later?

I found a book, Knit and Crochet With Beads, that I was flipping through in the store. The quick and dirty way to add beads is to just take the intended stitch off the needle, slip a big-enough-hole bead over it, then put the stitch back on and knit as normal.

Definitely helped to keep track of which row I was knitting/purling after I started putting the beads in that..
