I haven't done a lot of it--only one project--but the directions I used was to string all the beads you need onto the yarn first and then bring up the bead when you need it. There is a way to add beads as you go, too, I believe.

I use a bodkin with a ball at one end, hook at the other. When I get to the stitch I want to bead, I pull it off the left knitting needle with the bodkin hook, slide a bead onto that stitch and replace it on the left needle, knit until I get to next bead on stitch. Mary
