I've got everything to do this project EXCEPT the needles....where did you get them...the only place I can find is online and I hate to order them because of the shipping and handling.  Is there a better place?

I got them at my LYS.  You may have to ask - but they come in a package of 4 and mine were in a different place because they are so small.

I'd love to see pictures of yours when you are done!

oh..I've checked my nearest yarn store (it's 2 hours away) and they didn't have them anymore.  I'm going to have to order them.  But hopefully they'll get here soon, and I'll post mine when I'm done.
Thanks

Okay so I have ordered the needles off Ebay and they should be here any day.
I decided to see if I could start any of it..as I knew the beads had to be put on the thread.  Well i got the beads put on the thread and it says to transfer them to the cotton.  I'm lost at this point.  I'm not sure how they mean.  Any help would be appreciated.

That is stunning!  I'm going to try and make one for my moms birthday.  I have yet to knit anything with beads... I hope I can handle it.

The easiest way to get the beads on the pearl cotton is to use a beading needle and simple string them.  If you have already strung them on thread, you can simply hold the thread taught and run the beading needle up the beads on the thread and transfer them over.  The directions say to tie the thread and the cotton together and transfer them, but I didn't have big enough bead holes to get them over the knot.  If your bead holes are big enough, that would be a simple method!

Oh...the holes in my beads were too small to get them over any size knots, so I got some bigger ones and I got them strung.  Now I'm just waiting for my needles to show up.

OK, I must locate some 0000 needles and get started on that immediately.  I don't know how I managed to miss that one on knitty!

Man, that's exquisite.

HELP! Huh
I have begun knitting my mary ella and am having a crap time dealing with it.  I'm using size 11 seed beads and the 8 string like the pattern calls for, but my beads keep on getting all jumbled around in the stitches.  They don't lay out straight and flat like all the photos I've seen.  I've tried making my stitches tighter and looser, but neither seems to help.  Any suggestions???
