I was able to get nine repeats of the second chart, so it's a little shorter than called for in the pattern. I could have gone down a needle size and probably gotten ten repeats, but that's all right. The original pattern actually called for 11 repeats but the yarn I used didn't have as much yardage.

This was a fun knit--just enough going on to keep my attention, but not so overwhelming that I couldn't knit with other things going on.
When I was shopping for beads I couldn't find any in 6/0s, the size called for in the pattern, so I got 8s. Next time I'll wait and find 6s--the 8s got lost in the yarn. An LBS (local bead shop, The Beadles) has just moved into a much larger space and she got lots more seed beads in 6s and 8s, so I'm going to be very happy.
