Beaded Knitting

I am new to beaded knitting and am very frustrated–I have transferred the beads onto my knitting cotton but I am constantly having to stop knitting in order to move the beads down and there are over 1000 beades in the pattern. Is there an easier way to knit with beads? I want to create/make a bridal purse for my step daughter fpr her happy day.
Thank you for your help
