Show and Tell My Knit Necklace

I love to knit, and when I saw this pattern I just had to try it.  Isn't it just so different and pretty?  The necklace I'm talking about, not the sweater.
It's knit, it's beaded, it's jewelry!  This is just so different!  I love to knit and I like to make things that are just a little unusual than just a plain scarf, or plain shawl, or plain hat.  I don't like plain.
Here's a closer view.

I used a sock weight yarn called "Mini Mochi".  See how it's shaded?!  The beads I used were carnival colored with the same shading.  I actually could have used some smaller beads, but I could find smaller in this color.
I used a #2 knitting needle and for anyone that knits you know this is very small.  You almost feel like you're knitting with toothpicks!  I tried another necklace using a #3 needle but didn't likee how loosey goosey it was. 

I thought it looked nice against my new purple turtleneck.
These are the hooks I sewed on.

This pattern was in the March edition of Creative Knitting magazine.

I'm linking up to "Show and Tell Friday" hosted by Cindy at "My Romantic Home". 
This is the first time I've joined this party, but I thought it was such a great idea because I have a lot to show!

That is really pretty and unusual. I do not know how to knit at all. I can't sit still that long. That is why I am always painting and changing things up around here. Thanks so much for coming by.
