I just made my first bobble on my Movie Socks. I am so excited. I was worried because my size 0 needles feel kinda floppy and then the cotton didn’t feel like it would bobble-ize too easily. But it all worked. It’s not the best lookin’ bobble in the world, but I love it.
Davey was happy for me too!
Of course this might have been the remnants of a sugar high, as I let him have a lollipop entirely too early in the morning. I wanted to take a picture of him with his sucker. He hid it:
Gradually he brought it around from behind his back:
And here it is!
And now he was just being cute:
He’s eating a lollipop while still in his pajamas. It’s a good day for Davey.
Ok so it’s back to it on the Movie Socks. Oh – I broke my first dpn last night. I was sad. It was one of my pretty little knit picks harmony needles. Snapped it right in two. I was joining my picot edge, and it was kind of hard for me at first. I did eventually get the hang of it though, and it went much better. It was actually pretty fun by the time I was done. I just love the look of a picot edge!
These socks have a lace pattern. I learned a wonderful way to knit lace or at least to follow the pattern. (Thanks to my friend Ronnie.) I write out each line of the pattern on a separate index card. The index cards on a spiral work best, or just a little spiral notebook actually, but I had some index cards to use. So I write the pattern down, and I arrange the line on my card in rows that kind of make sense to me. This may just look like a mess but it works well for me:
Ok off to knit. Davey went to play with his I-E and Papa Russ this afternoon. He was very excited. And I just got Season 1 Disk 1 of Castle from Netflix. I didn’t see the early shows. So I am going to go knit and watch it. That may be a risky endeavor though as I will be working on this lace pattern. Living dangerously!
That’s a fine looking bobble. 😀
Thank you! I have done several more now, and they are really fun and not bad at all. I was worried about purling back across – no biggie. Maybe the cotton helps being a little stretchy? Fun!
It is very sad when needles break. I have broken about 3 and snapped 2 cables.
Can’t read charts yet or at least I don’t like them. Writing out the row is a great idea. I use Post-its to keep my place on the different rows but they eventually lose their stickiness and fall off.
All my dpns under a size 6 are metal. I would break wooden ones that are smallerl…not intentionally.
I always enjoy making bobbles. Looks great! And I have broken several DPNs too. It’s not fun 😦
