I used size 8/0 silver lined clear beads on the edge and absolutely adore them. I have to agree with Melanie, they look like tiny droplets of water.
I think I'll be behind most of you as we progress unless I turn into a turbo knitting goddess and crank out 6.5 repeats of Chart A this weekend. I'm thinking the chances are slim to none but who knows, the Knitting Gods may smile on me. :)
