There has been some happy dancing happening in the house! My mixed stitch stripey bobbled blanket and I are now the best of friends. Yes, I won the battle and my blanket has bobbles!! Yippeeeeeee.
There's a bit of a new routine around this neck of the woods. My girls are currently on school holidays, and hubby is at home a lot, still in recovery-phase and I have set up a morning "office" in bed!! I grab a bowl of cereal, unplug my laptop, get my crochet blanket and hop back into bed for ohhhh a couple of hours!! I know, it's utterly disgraceful (other Very Important Things are not getting done), but it is such a snoozy, fabulous way to start the day and I'm making the most of it because I know it won't last!!
Want to see another photo? We haven't spent quite enough time looking at these bobbles yet have we?
Okay, so some are a little less "bobbly" than others. I'll let you in on a little secret, after I had finished my complete row of bobbles and the next row, I did in fact notice a slight mistake with each and every bobble. Yes, each and every one, which means at least it's consistent, and I have decided not to undo the rows and look on this as a learning curve, or a learning bobble.
The good thing here is that I am learning new stitches, undoing where there must be undoing and most importantly, being okay about things that are okay but not perfect. I think I'm growing!!! There would have been a time when less-than-perfect would have been rolled up in a ball and shoved under the bed never to be seen or heard of again.
Okay, I'm off to learn the outline cluster pattern. Wish me luck.
Hope you have a very happy, bobbly kind of day.
