Pattern says: Row 1: *k1, put thread in front, slip a bead, put thread in back, k1; repeat from asterix to end of row. Row 2: Knit across next row (no beads).
On row 2 ......as I'm yarning over the left needle (to create the 2nd knit stitch where a bead was placed on the previous row), does it make a difference whether the thread goes above the bead and around the left needle to create the knit stitch or whether the thread goes below the bead?  Huh Huh

i'm not quite clear on what you're asking, but i think you would want the bead to be in between the needle and the knitting, rather than above the needle. 

i would think that it wouldn't matter that much if you just did it the way you've been doing it, rather than knitting the stitch.  (ie continue to slip stitches).  that's the way they suggest doing it in the knitty article below.

creepyhugger: Thank you for replying to my garbled 1st question. Does the revised question make any more sense?

Without having tested your instructions myself, I can say that there are three places the bead can end up on a knit stitch:
On the left "leg" of the V (if you imagine a knit stitch as a V)
On the right leg of the V
On the purl "bump" on the back side of the stitch

You just have to decide whichever looks best for your project. Some patterns, like Odessa from Magknits are very clear in how the beads should be knit in, others are not.

Hope this helps.

Mistakes done in life and in mohair can't be ripped.

i'm still not sure i completely understand the question.  i would think you would want to keep the bead to the front of the work.  you could do a little swatch and try it both ways and see what looks better to you.  alternatively, you could just do it the way you already know, instructions be damned!   Wink

I like the philosophy of "instructions be damned".
So I'm just going for it, and I may even get brave enough to post the completed bracelet.
oops  Roll Eyes  That is getting rather bold for me. Guess I'll see what happens......................
