I did a search on Ravelry and the word nupps kept coming up. Nupps I asked myself what nupps. My chart has no nupps....
Nupps send shivers down the spin of most knitters - the k1,yo,k1,yo,k1,yo,k1 into the one stitch on one way over, and then purl these stitches all together on the way back - sounds easy, go on try it. Unless you are really loose with the yarn it can be an absolute (please give me vodka) bugger, try purling 7 stitches together.
I know, I have been there, I have learnt this lesson. To be honest, is the end result worth the effort? I ask you reader should I?
So last night I left you with feeling of joy, and no worries she'll be right mate.
Today I am not so sure.
