Imagine this fiber
spun into a fine single, knit into this edging,
and applied all along the edge here.
Would that work? I also imagine incorporating a small bead like this, maybe into each point of the edging? That might be overkill.

There is a slight problem with this whole scenario though. I can't knit lace. You'll notice the edging photo above has a strategically placed envelope? Yeah, it is hiding this.
I think I missed a knit row, which then made me start knitting the triangle the other way. Or something. I just know that last triangle is wrong. So very wrong. It is a pitifully easy pattern too. I'm hopeless.
Maybe I could use the fiber spun into a fine single, and use that to do blanket stitch around the edge, incorporating one of the beads into each stitch?
