Building Blocks #3 or I Don't Like Bobbles
Please don't be confused, I love baubles, not bobbles. As in knitted bobbles. I think they look weird, like a bulging mistake on my beautiful knitted fabric. Okay, now that I have got that out of my system, it is with some sadness that the building block for March is all about bobbles. I gritted my teeth familiarized myself with how to knit one of these abobblination. I studied my building block for the month and thought well it is only 16 bobbles. I cast on and got through the block glad it is the only one of the 12 blocks I really don't like. Natalie was right with me on this opinion of this knitting abobbration. As we compared our 2 blocks she said to me, "Why would you want to knit something that is just going to catch on things?" Good point, but we stuck to the Building Block #3 pattern and suffered through the design. We are looking forward to the rest of the blocks in the book, but this one was a bitter bobble to swallow.
