How to knit in beads so they are not loose?
:( I am using crystal beads 3/8 inch in garter stitch. I can't get them tight enough. Any suggestions.

Couple of questions for you..

1. What weight yarn are you using?
2. What size needles are you using
3. What are you trying to knit them into?

I'm doing stuff with beads at the moment, hopefully I might be able to help you.
