I hate bobbles or popcorn be it knitting or crochet. I will omit them from any pattern I may be working on. I don't what is about them except I have detested them ever since I learned to knit as a young child. That is a beautiful skein of yarn.

Suzy said...

Hi Alana,

Where I stand on bobbles - HATE THEM! I totally agree that it's a love/hate relationship. I knit your Cloudy Day pattern with Classic Elite Fresco and the fuzziness in the yarn would have made them not as prominent (which is exactly my problem with bobbles) but I still couldn't bring myself to make them. Instead, I knit 5-stitch nupps in place of the bobbles - beautiful, ever-so-slightly puffy purple nupps. Ahhh... :)


P.S. I'd love to win a skein of that gorgeous yarn! My rav name is polkadotknits

I'm Wizzdumb on Ravelry. The Snow-capped yarn is lovely. I equate bobbles with thick crochet and macrame. But just a few bobbles in thinner yarn I think would be just fine.

I've only ever done one project with bobbles, and I thought it was kind of fun. It was the Twisted Cowl from Malabrigo book 3. I think it looks nice in the cable pattern. Not sure how I would feel about them on a sweater though!

About bobbles, I think that I am that non existing middle group, I do not think anything particularly about bobbles, they can be cute in the right place. One of the first sweaters I saver started is a lovely thick vintage sweater with bobbles all over, I still used it and love it, If the bobbles are allover it won't look wearied.
Her it is modeled on my friend.

Hello Alana, this is the first time I have listened to your podcast, sat and did some christmas knitting whilst I listened, perfect! I like the look of bobbles (in the right places!)I have made myself a large shawl which is covered in bobbles, I must say every bobble row was a pain - they just take so long to knit! But if the pattern was beautiful it would never put me off, knitting is time consuming and that's ok by me. Take care, Rebecca
