What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't let the bobbles scare you! They're easy to do. Really. When I first learned to knit I swore I'd never do them. Years later I found I loved doing nupps, but still swore against bobbles. I finally tried them this fall for the first time, and LOVE knitting bobbles. Just imagine what I missed out on all those years. Don't you do the same thing. They're fun.
