Nupps, Nupps & More Nupps...


The Swallowtail shawl is progressing nicely albeit slowly due to the increasing number of stitches, think I'm up to about 223 now and just completed two rows of Lily Border 2.... and the Nupps just keep coming..... BUT they are getting easier.....
I was routing about on the net the other evening when I came across Fleegle's Blog and there I found a tutorial on making Nupps with nice clear photo's.... I wouldn't say I'm finding them easy but they are getting easier to do..... still can't seem to stretch the yarn out enough but I am getting some nice little 'blobs' and the stitches are easier to purl..... Oh well I've still got a few more rows to practise....

I ended up doing my nupps by using a 2mm dpn to pick up the stitches and it was much easier :)

well i just frogged 10 rows which was all the lily border 2! because I didn't move my lifeline up, so am getting lots of practise at Nupps.... I might try that too Helen, but last few rows of Nupps I seem to have got the hang of the technique better :)
