I had never done bobbles before, and am so glad I tried, because they are so much fun to knit and the possibilities are endless. I'm thinking maybe knit knipples on a sweater? Naughty! And my new Embellish Knitter from JoAnn's made all those yards of i-cord bearable. Cranked 'em out in under an hour! Good thing, too, because the assembly of all those small pieces was a nightmare; I abhor seaming!
Off to watch more Season 3 of Nip/Tuck (another guilty pleasure). No internet tomorrow, so I'll be "forced" to go on a picnic/bike ride to the Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary with The Man. Enjoy your holiday!
Edited 9/6/06 to add: For those interested, here is the pattern for the Pig Potholders, courtesy of the Frugal Knitting Haus, and the Cherry Pie pattern is here, at PieKnits by Jennifer Tallapaneni. Many thanks to both!
