Wolhemel balnket block 7

I finally got the back finished last night for J's jumper, and have cast on for the first sleeve. If the back is anything to go by, this will take some time.

Whilst watching the rugby, I knit the seventh blanket block. This has some lovely bobbles set within a lacy pattern, though this is not so clear from the photo. I haven't knit anything with bobbles for over twenty years. I did myself a large, chunky cable cardigan that had lots of bobbles in the pattern. I think I was all bobbled out by the finish. The sleeves had a central pattern, and the bobbles were quite prominent. My mum always said it was like a pork pie crust! It didn't put me of wearing it though, the cardigan was lovely and warm.

I've been baking this morning, and can't quite make up my mind what to do this afternoon. So many choices.

your kinitting brought back memories of when I knit my daughter a jumper with bobbles on, it was cream. She was 2 at the time so without giving too much away it is also around the same length of time since I knit a bobble!!

I can see the lovely bobbles and I think you are so clever. Love Patti the non-knitter xxx

Have you ever knit the sleeves side by side? I like to do it that way so the piece gets finished at the same time, and increases and decreases will happen on the same rows.

Ooh. I like immediate comment posting. Thanks for that!

I like that square -- the color is gorgeous, too! Enjoy your afternoon, whatever you decide to do :)

I haven't knit bobbles in years either. Makes a nice pattern and block.

What a cute knitting pattern! I love these bubles! I remember about three yers ago I made a blanket with pattern similar to this from a very fine yarn, I liked it! I gave it as a gift!
Thank you for sharing this picture!

Love your blanket squares. I once did a fisherman knit afghan with bobbles on it. It took me forever. Yours are beautiful.
