Bead in SSK vs SKP
I'm working on the Aeolian Shawl ( and the instructions say:

"When a bead is to be placed on a decrease, the bead should be placed before working the decrease, as follows:
For a [ssk], place the bead on the first st on the left needle."

I work all ssk's as skp - I just find it easier and I like the look of my result better. Now would I still place the bead on the first stitch? In my mind it should work out to be exactly the same, but I just kinda want another voice to tell me it will be ;o)

BTW - I find this pattern to be so fast and enjoyable... maybe it's because I already made all the mistakes I could make on my very first shawl, but even the beading is super simple!
