Bead bother

I’m trying to sort out a project that doesn’t really work for me right now. It’s supposed to be green and purple but the combination doesn’t feel right. I really like the purple color but it’s just too much with the green. So I’ve been trying out some alternatives.



I think the winner is blue as a contrasting color. It’s different but not too contrasting and I think it works well with the purple. But what to do with the beads? I think I prefer the lighter ones but I’m not sure they work with the blue and they don’t really look good on the knitting, I don’t know if they are big enough. The darker ones attach better to the knitting (for lack of a better word) and probably match the blue yarn better. I really like the lighter blue though. What do you think?
