Adding Beads to Knitting with a Sewing Needle

I've been adding beads to my knitting using a sewing needle and thread to help get the beads on my yarn. I'm putting up a video for anyone who might be interested in seeing how I've been doing it.

I worked one bead after I knit the stitch, one before I knit the stitch and another one after I knit the stitch. The advantage of knitting the stitch first is that you can adjust the tension of the stitch to accommodate the bead. It will also sit where it looks like it is on a chart. If you place the bead before you knit it, you are actually putting it one row below where it shows on the chart.
