Sahara progress

Here's my Sahara:



I really like the lace rib trim. I added Miyuki size 5/0 triangle beads to each group of k3 in the rib and I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.

It does take forever to add the beads while knitting so I can understand why one would want to use prebeaded yarn. I'm enjoying this process however. I'm debating whether or not to start the neckline next or do the sleeves next which is what the pattern has you do. I'm absolutely love this yarn. It is one of the softest yarns I've ever worked with and it feels glorious next to the skin!

I think your Sahara is quite stunning. And I love the beads. I am adding beads to my contrast yarn, too, and that's right where I am now (at the bottom of the sweater). I look forward to seeing your progress. I am kind of a beginning knitter and nervous about...the whole sweater!
