What a helpful site. I used to knit like a fiend and have gone back to the craft after at least a twenty year hiatus. I find this site really useful as a refresher course for some of the things I've forgotten.Now that my second daughter is expecting her first child I'm knitting for the new little one and really enjoying it.I am also an avid rubberstamper and have over two thousand rubber stamps and a craft room to work in.I've suffered with arthritis for many years and my hobbies are what keep me "relatively" sane.I'm currently searching this site for help in making bobbles on a little sweater.Color2queen
There is a great video HERE (scroll down). That's how I make them. Hope it helps!
It really really really helps to [COLOR=blue]use the pointiest needles you have.[/COLOR]
I use KNITPICKS "OPTIONS" for bobbles. Next choice...Crystal Palace bamboos.
Addis are horrid for bobbling along. A fight to the end.
