Excellent photography, explanations of techniques/terms, and even my favorite type of binding (coil inside a hardcover; perfect for laying flat while knitting). However, I'm not quite ready to embark on beads yet. Interesting projects: Crystal Cardigan, Magic Mohair Beret, Beady-Eyed Cable Socks, Zulu Inspired Vest.

This book is amazing. Durant takes you through all the different ways of using beads with knitting (I didn't realize there were so many options! and each gives a different look!). There are tons of neat patterns and lots of inspiring pictures and clear instructions. I've got a whole slew of things I want to make now!

I bought this for my mum for Christmas and again it's a great one by Judith Durant. I have never tried knitting with beads, but after reading this one and looking at all the yummy pictures I want to try something from it. In fact I may simply have to acquire my own copy! :)

So pretty! But a little advanced for me atm. I'll refer back to this when I'm at the knitting-with-beads level.

I'll reference this if I ever decide to knit with beads, though I wasn't interested in the included patterns so much as the techniques.
