How to: Easy way to knit a Nupp


I've decided to put here some 'How to' posts from time to time to which I can refer in my patterns later. And who knows - maybe you'll find something useful too.

Today I will show how I knit a nupp. As for me this is an easiest way to knit the nupps - without any turn arounds, or hooks, or knitting and purling back and forth. And this is actually a classic method for knitting nupps in laced shawls - they are bumpy, but not to hard.

So, it's really easy and I've just made a few photos to help you understand the whole process but don't get scared by a lot of photos - it's much easier than it might look.

Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015!


I still can not believe it is 2015 already! Happy New Year, guys!
This will be a very short post with only one pic - the collage with my projects from 2014. It's not all of them though, as I didn't take any pics of repeated projects.. But still - it's nice to see them all together.

Hope that 2015 will be as productive as 2014 was!
