    Hey peeps!  I hope all of my U.S. buddies had a nice Thanksgiving weekend.  Felix and I trekked down to my parent’s house for the long weekend, which is just south of the city.

    How to Knit a Bobble Posted on November 13, 2012

    Let’s talk bobbles… I really dislike bobbles, but so far I’m not finding them that bad.  Honestly, once I get to a bobble row it’s a welcome change from the 7 rows of stockinette.
