I started Celaeno a few days ago. The instructions for the garter section tell you to "place beads randomly." Well if that isn't a recipe for insanity.
I spend far more time obsessing over when and where to place a bead than I do knitting. I keep stopping to look at my work. "Should I put a bead here?" "Are these beads too close together?" "Are there more beads on this side?" Crazy-making!
The yarn is Schaefer Anne in Spruce, I believe. It's a great deep, murky, blue-green-black. The beads didn't show up well in any of my photos. Anyone have any tips for capturing beads in photographs?
